    Dear Visitor, Its truly my pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to Bermuda.

    Located two hours from most East Coast gateway cities and six hours from Europe, Bermuda is 21 square miles of breathtaking beaches, quaint roadways, gorgeous scenery, unique architecture and the bluest waters as far as the eye can see.

    We have a host of events and activities showcasing Bermudas thriving culture and rich history. Events include the Newport to Bermuda Yacht Race, the 15th Annual Bermuda Music Festival, Annual Gombey Festival and much more!

    If youre a golf enthusiast, youll be pleased to know that this year Bermuda will play host to one of the worlds most prestigious golf tournaments the 30th Annual PGA Grand Slam of Golf. Its an event not to be missed and some of golf s greatest stars are expected to descend on the Island for this tournament.

    As Bermudians, we take great pride in our genuine hospitality and whether you are residing in some of our finest properties, dining in our exceptional restaurants, relaxing in our many spas, playing a round of golf or exploring our many attractions, I am certain that during your visit, you will see this warmth displayed time and again.

    I sincerely hope you enjoy your visit to our shores. Were very pleased that you have chosen Bermuda for your vacation.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. the Hon. Ewart F. Brown, JP, MPPremier Minister of Tourism and Transport
