Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory in the North Atlantic Ocean, off the east shore of North America about 665 miles east-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and 959 miles north of Road Town, British Virgin Islands. The capital city of Bermuda is Hamilton.

St. George’s, Bermuda was settled in 1612, and was the first permanent English settlement on the islands of Bermuda. It is often described as the third successful English settlement in the Americas, after St. John’s, Newfoundland, and Jamestown, Virginia.
