The Bermuda Triangle or Devil's Triangle is an arbitrarily defined triangular region off the coast of Florida, encompassing the Sargasso Sea, islands of the Caribbean and open ocean in the south Atlantic Ocean. It has had every manner of strange paranormal and occult occurrence attributed to it, most commonly the disappearance of ships, boatrs, submarines and aeroplanes of all kinds.
It is also believed by some to be the site of the legendary Atlantis, an identification boosted greatly by the regular discovery of sunken ruins of an unknown civilisation in the area.

Popular culture has attributed these disappearances to the paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial life. Documented evidence indicates that a significant percentage of the incidents were inaccurately reported or embellished by later authors, and numerous official agencies have stated that the number and nature of disappearances in the region is similar to that in any other area of ocean.
