Hamilton, Bermuda

Bermuda was first sited in 1503 by the Spanish explorer Juan de Bermuda who christened it "Las Bermudas", but because of the island's dangerous uncharted coral reefs and sudden storms it was never successfully settled until the British admiral Sir George Somers landed there in 1609 and established a colony. Its government is a parliamentary democracy with the basis of the law being English common law supplemented with Bermudian legislation. Its parliament is the oldest in the British Commonwealth, having first met in 1620. The island is known for its reliable and sophisticated infrastructure and stable environment.
