We visited during the week when it was less busy and had a great time. There weren't as many people, the sand was super soft, the water was very clear. I have been here during peak season and that can be difficult.

Pink sand and turquoise water! This beach is located on the South Shore where there are beautiful beaches. Horseshoe Bay is just spectacular! Even horseback riding.

WOW!!! We love Bermuda! This was our first time in Bermuda so we were very very excited. The people are friendly and the public transportation is easy to use. We used bus number 7 to Horseshoe Bay Beach! Horseshoe Bay was crowded but spectacular! Visited this during our cruise. We stayed in the cove area because it was safer for... More

Pink sand, and clean beach. You won't stub your toe or scrape your knees on rocks .........you can see all the way to the bottom. Water is very warm. Cave and coral on beach. Can even go snorkeling if you want. No shade though....you must get umbrella and chair......each couple shared one.

I am afraid I am used to my beaches a little less busy. Horseshoe can be very busy, especially at weekends. This is a pink beach, but it is also a raked beach, prepared for people. There are loungers, food, toilets, etc. and if this is what you seek the beach is perfect for you. Much better to my mind... More

If you are coming in on a cruise ship then yes it will be crowded however there is plenty of beach! You can rent chairs and umbrellas $11 each then when you return them you get $5 each back. Most people do not walk too far from the concession stand but there is a ton more beach if you walk... More

Horseshoe Bay Beach is gorgeous and probably unlike any other beach you've been to. There are really large rocks to climb or swim to, lots of space to get away from the bulk of the tourists and pink sand. You won't be sorry to take the bus here for $4 (except that it's really crammed), or get a taxi (or... More

We went to Bermuda on a Celebrity Cruise and luckily decided to take a trip to Horseshoe Bay Beach despite other passengers' warnings about the crowds. We took a shuttle service straight to the beach from King's Wharf ($16/person round-trip) and our driver gave us some great info about the island on the 25 minute drive. There were other options...

Yes it's true most tourist go to this beach, because it is beautiful. The beach is so big that don't worry there is plenty of space for everyone and it does not feel crowded at all. We spent a whole day here and had all the amenities we needed. They sell drinks, umbrellas, chairs, snorkel gear. They also have lockers,... More

It was a very nice beach. The rental prices for the umbrella and chairs were ridiculous. $15 deposit and $11 for each chair and umbrella. For me to rent 2 chairs and 1 umbrella it cost $48.00 and I only got $5 back after returning. That was not a good thing. Not much selection for food but it was fine.... More
