Is it the Bermuda Triangle
Bermuda, A British self-governing territory in the western North Atlantic Ocean. It is a stretch of many islands. 7 main islands and about 170 additional named islets and rocks, situated about 650 miles east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, U.S
The stretch of islands are about 24 miles long and averages less than 1 mile in width. The main islands are clustered together in the shape of a fishhook and are connected by bridges. The largest island is Main Island, 14 miles long and 1 mile wide. The Peak, at 259 feet on Main Island, is the highest point. The capital is Hamilton.
The islands are composed of limestone sitting atop a dead volcanic mountain range rising more than 14,000 feet above the ocean floor. The limestone surface is overlain by a shallow layer of fertile soil. The islands are fringed by coral reefs and have no lakes or rivers, but the soil is highly porous, and standing water is not a problem.
The climate is mild, humid, and equable. August is the warmest month, with an average daytime high of 86 °F (30 °C), and February is the coldest month, with an average nighttime low of 57 °F (14 °C). Mean annual precipitation is about 57 inches (1,450 mm). Occasional dry spells can be critical, as the supply of drinking water depends almost entirely on rainfall. A number of migratory birds visit the islands annually; other wildlife is limited to lizards and frogs.
About three-fifths of the population is of full or mixed African ancestry, including immigrants from the West Indies or their descendants,Just a beautiful place to spend surfer vacations, weekend travel, Special celebration and so much more.
THINGS TO DO IN BERMUDA WITH KIDS
Bermuda with kids is an incredible destination where we spent 8 days exploring what’s on offer to families. We discovered as many child-friendly activities as possible to write this detailed guide on what to do in Bermuda with kids. It’s one of my all time favourite family vacations, I have such fond memories of this tiny island, with such diverse landscape and unique experiences.
We were incredibly happy that it’s a small island with low key walks, easy to reach attractions, without the crowds at popular tourist destinations. It doesn’t matter if your visiting Bermuda with baby, a toddler, or kids, its a perfect place for anyone.
It’s just a short flight for anyone living on the East Coast of the US and a 7.5 hr flight from the UK, British Airways fly direct regularly. Bermuda is located a good way north of the Caribbean, so don’t expect tropical weather all year around! We visited Bermuda in January, the weather was sunny and warm, but still a little chilly for swimming some days. We definitely needed clothing layers.
High season in Bermuda runs from May to October when the weather is hot and sunny (and great for swimming with the kids) but prices can match the demand. Shoulder season (April-May and October-November) can be a good option for striking the balance between sunshine and cost when it comes to the best time to go to Bermuda.
So Why Does This Beautiful Destination Get Such A Bad Rap?

Scientist ‘solves’ mystery of the Bermuda Triangle – by claiming there was no mystery in the first place
Karl Kruszelnicki says everything can be explained by human error, bad weather, and heavy air and sea traffic – not alien abduction or energy beams from the lost city of Atlantis
Defying 70 years of fevered speculation, a sceptical scientist has dared to declare that the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle has been ‘solved’ – by claiming there was no mystery in the first place.
Karl Kruszelnicki has insisted the reason why so many ships and planes vanish without trace in the area between Bermuda, Florida, Puerto Rico is nothing to do with aliens or fire-crystals from the lost city of Atlantis.
Instead, the Australian scientist ‘revealed’, the high number of disappearances is explained by nothing more supernatural than plain old human error plus bad weather and the fact that lots of planes and ships enter that area of the Atlantic Ocean in the first place.
Mr Kruszelnicki told news.com.au that not only does the Bermuda Triangle – (aka ‘Hodoo Sea’, ‘Devil’s Triangle’, ‘Limbo of the Lost’ and other headline-friendly monikers) – cover a large, 700,000 square-kilometre (270,000 square-mile) swathe of ocean, it is also a particularly busy patch of sea.
“It is close to the Equator, near a wealthy part of the world – America – therefore you have a lot of traffic,” he said.
So, said Mr Kruszelnicki, when you then compare the number of disappearances to the large quantity of ships and planes passing through the Bermuda Triangle, you find there is nothing out of the ordinary about the area at all.
“According to Lloyd’s of London and the US Coastguard,” he said, “The number that go missing in the Bermuda Triangle is the same as anywhere in the world on a percentage basis.”
This was a flight of five US Navy TBM Avenger torpedo bombers that set off from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on December 5 1945 for a routine two-hour training mission over the Atlantic.
