We took the buses out to Horseshoe Bay Beach from Grotto Bay and it was so worth it! The beach is absolutely beautiful. The clear blue water, sand, rock formations etc. I couldn't have imagined a better beach day. To the right of the entrance (down a very long hill) is an area that is fairly shallow. It had beautiful... More

Every reviewer will tell you the same thing...because it's true.....Horseshoe Bay Beach is beautiful....the water is so awesome! Yet I'd like to say: DON'T buy an excursion from your cruise ship. It's easy to step off your cruise ship and take a bus yourself. For example, I like Royal Caribbean, but their offer to take my family to the beach... More

Horseshoe Bay Beach offers incredible views and plenty of room to explore. It is also a perfect place for a proposal--kudos to my fiance for picking this magical spot.

Grotto Bay and all of the wonderful people there once again left us wanting to go back. The Four Ways was unbelievable with no alarm serenade this time. Next year we are staying for the cup. Go St. George!

I had the pleasure of going to this beach when I was a teenager. Since then I have not been able to find a beach comparable to this one. It's beautiful bright blue/ green water and amazing soft pink sand and those private coves where you can go and not be disturbed. Hands down one of my favorite childhood memories... More

Horsebay Bay Beach is probably the nicest beach in Bermuda, the sand is so soft and pretty colored. The long walk down the hill to the beach is well worth the effort, hint take a cab back up. Wasn't overcrowded and a nice place to just chill at the beach.

I had the opportunity to visit Horseshoe Bay Beach in April of 2013 and it's every bit as beautiful as these pictures and then some. The sand is white flecked with pink shells and the water is the bluest blue. It's that little bit of heavenly paradise on earth. It's a must see. The people of Bermuda are very friendly... More

The most amazing beach I've ever been to. Quite busy by entrance but a short stroll takes you to quieter spots. Snorkelling pool is great for seeing parrot fish and sergeant majors. Need to watch rip tides but life guards do keep you informed of risk level. It's a stunning place and well worth a visit with boogie boards!

This was a really wonderful place to go if you like beaches! The water is clear and warm and there is more to see and do than just sit on the beach
