Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory in the North Atlantic Ocean, some 600 miles to the east of North Carolina. So it is not a part of the Caribbean islands, located much more to the south.

The British Overseas Territories are those parts of the former British Empire that have not acquired independence, or have voted to remain British territories. While each has its own internal leadership, they share the British Queen Elizabeth II as head of state.

Somerset Island is one of the main islands of the chain that makes up Bermuda, and lies in the far west of the territory. The small village of Somerset lies in the northern part of the island located in Sandys Parish. It also includes Boaz Island, Ireland Island and Watford Island. They are all connected by bridges and serviced by buses and ferries.
