Settling into Bermuda is relatively easy. First-timers soon learn that Bermuda isn't one island, as is commonly thought, but a string of islands linked by causeways and bridges -- at least the 20 or so that are inhabited. The other islands can be reached by boat.

Getting to Bermuda is easier than ever, thanks to more frequent flights from such gateway cities as New York, Boston, and Washington, D.C. We also include information on several cruise lines that sail to the island from spring until late autumn.

Packing Tip -- Bermuda is more formal than most resort destinations, so men planning to dine at upscale restaurants should be sure to pack a jacket and tie.
