Photographer's Note

The largest fort in Bermuda, Fort St. Catherine towers above pink sand beaches, making it one of the island’s most extraordinary attractions. Constructed in 1614, Fort St. Catherine underwent numerous upgrades in the 19th century; today, its interior serves as a museum of Bermudian history.
It’s hard to imagine, Bermuda wasn’t always a vacationer’s paradise. Throughout most of its history, the island was actually a strategic naval centre that played an important role in a number of wars.
Once called the Gibraltar of the West, Bermuda’s proximity to the young American nation made it an ideal spot for Britain to station troops and arms during the American Revolution and the War of 1812, and it even became the Royal Navy’s Western Atlantic headquarters for many years.
The island also served as an important naval base during both World Wars.
