It has nearly 19,000 yards of golf courses
Even though Bermuda is only 21 square miles (about the same size of Manhattan), there are a whopping six golf courses across the island. If you’re counting at home, that’s more per capita than any other country. These aren’t just average courses, either. Everyone from presidents to movie stars to golf royalty have visited the island to tee off (Samuel L. Jackson, Tiger Woods, Winston Churchill, plus Catherine Zeta-Jones and her husband, Michael Douglas, to name a few). Turtle Hill stands out as one of Bermuda’s most popular award-winning courses, thanks to sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean along its fairways. (Golf Magazine agrees, naming Turtle Hill one of the top five par-3 courses in the world.) Port Royal is another must-play for every level of golfer -- the course hosted the PGA Grand Slam for seven years and has more than 20,000 feet of manicured greens to drive and putt through. Just make sure to stuff your bag full of extra balls -- Port Royal’s 16th hole, which tees off from atop a cliff high above the Atlantic, is considered one of the most challenging in the world. If golf isn't your thing, there’s no shortage of other outdoor adventures to experience.
