Located at Albuoy’s Point in Bermuda’s capital, Hamilton, a new triangular sign marks the spot.
The island of Bermuda leans into its air of mystery as it commemorates the location of the alleged Bermuda Triangle, where 50 ships and 20 planes are believed to have gone missing without explanation. as its tourist board shared a post about its new plaque on its Instagram account over the weekend, introducing it as the ‘official northern tip of this legendary mystery’.
Located in Bermuda’s capital, Hamilton, on Albuoy’s Point, a triangular park that juts into Hamilton Harbor off Front Street was officially commemorated as a landmark this summer. The Point Pleasant Park area is marked by the plaque and a sign with a QR code, prompting visitors to learn more about unexplained disappearances that have occurred in the area, as well as encouraging them to take their own photos on the site and tag #TopOfTheTriangle.
“Whether the Bermuda Triangle is a fabricated mystery or a paranormal force at work, there is no doubt that it is a fascinating subject,” Hamilton adviser John Harvey said in July. “[It] is also one of the things we are most often associated with, perhaps after our famous Bermuda shorts.
Officials hope the bronze plaque will serve as a new landmark for visitors to the 21-square-mile island, also known for its pink-sand beaches, stunning caves, fish sandwiches and more than 300 shipwreck sites. – another sign that could point to the mysteries of the immaterial triangle.
While Bermuda – located less than a two-hour flight from New York – is named after the Bermuda Triangle, it’s only home to the northern tip. The southern tip of the triangle is Miami and San Juan, Puerto Rico, is the southeast tip, according to the new plaque.
“Learn all about the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean where a number of planes and ships are believed to have gone missing under questionable circumstances,” Bermuda said in her Instagram post on the plaque.
The park is also now the location of the sculpture Against Da Tide by Bermudian artist Bill Mussey Ming, part of the island’s African Diaspora Heritage Trail.
