Horseshoe Bay Beach, Southampton Parish

4.7
#1 of 217 in Things to do in Bermuda
Considered to be one of the top ten beaches in the world, Horseshoe Bay Beach features a curved stretch of pink sand against the backdrop of limestone rocks protruding into turquoise blue waters. If you find the main beach crowded, walk up over the dunes and look for one of the secluded coves. If you're a good swimmer, you can venture out a little offshore towards the rocks, where you'll find some excellent spots for snorkeling. You'll be greatly rewarded with sights of angelfish, parrotfish, snappers, and many other colorful sea creatures. Enjoy a cool beer or a soda on a patio of the beach cafe, which also offers a menu of burgers, hotdogs, chicken, and fish. Amenities include a small shop selling towels and T-shirts, as well as restrooms, changing booths, and showers near the entrance.

    We only had two hours, so we did not rent chairs and umbrella for $45. Decent bar and okay concessions at one end of the beach and that end was quite crowded,  more »

    If this beach isn't on everyone's Bermuda top-ten list it should be. The set up is perfect - easy access from the public bus routes, just down the hill, and a great changing area. The restaurant is go...  more »

    The most incredible beach. An absolute must see if you're visiting Bermuda

    It's a gorgeous beach but it is so incredibly crowded when the cruise ship tours are around that I can't fathom why anyone would choose to come here on their own. If you have any means of getting yourself around the island, go to one of the less-crowded and equally beautiul beaches, like Church Bay or Elbow beach (take Tribal Road 4B down to the public beach in between some of the fancy resorts).

    This is the loveliest beach I've ever been to. The sand is fantastic, the views are tremendous. It's great.

    The water is extremely beautiful. The pink sand is very soft and the cove is very nice. If you go out far you can be more secluded from other tourist and enjoy the wonderful beach.

    Be sure to climb the rocks on the south end of the beach (if you are able). The view is great. Also, for a less crowded experience, take a short walk north along the water to find some privacy.
