Location Overview / Where is Bermuda located?: Bermuda is located North America, it's a group of islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, east of South Carolina (US). Many mistakenly believe Bermuda is a Caribbean Island, not true. Though climate is mild it's because of the Gulf Stream that brings tropical water from the Caribbean Sea. In fact, the eight main islands of Bermuda (collectively known as "the island") and a 120 other various islands aren't in the Caribbean at all, but approx. 600 miles off the coast of North Carolina in the Atlantic Ocean.
