We went by bus in the morning from our resort (Grotto Bay). What a lovely (small) beach, with crystal clear water, pink sand, small 'mountain' to climb for outstanding views, a sea cave (careful, rocks are incredibly sharp), food, alcohol & rentals. But by noon-time, the throngs of tourists from the cruise ships also arrived and the place was absolutely... More

Finally decided to see what all the fuss was about and visit this beach. This was our 2nd trip to Bermuda and we have visited Tobacco Bay, Elbow Beach, Warwick Cove and Church Bay before. What can I say...Horseshoe is beautiful and the surf is calmer then the others but its very crowded so just keep that in mind if... More

This beach is beautiful and definitely a breathtaking site. However, every beach I went to in Bermuda was just as beautiful. All beaches were clean, beautiful (and cool) sand, amazingly crystal clear water, dark rocks along the water's edge and in the water. This beach was very busy and definitely a tourist spot. The only thing this beach had on... More

I visited this beach mid- May while in Bermuda on vacation. The beach was a lot of fun and was very clean. They had beach chairs to rent, drinks for sale and a bathroom. It is one of the pink sand beaches and was one of the highlights of my vacation!

This was a great place to go, the only thing is when you go with the group from the cruise it can get very busy, The rental sand chairs are 15.00 each very expensive. Some of the staff could put on smiles. But over all it was great. You need to once you arrive on the beach get your chairs... More

We were on a cruise and had three days total in Bermuda and despite the weather (high 60's and windy) on the 1st day we decided to go to Horseshoe Bay Beach. We did not buy a transfer through the ship and just ended up taking a taxi from the pier (van for about 9-11 people was $7 per person... More

There were a lot of people on the beach. We rented an umbrella and 2 beach chairs. $15 each. Walk to the left and you will find little coves. An awesome place. Nice clean beach.

The beach is very long, crescent shaped with firm sand for great exercise. The water is beautiful with the blues and greens you love in Bermuda. Go on Kite Day which falls on Good Friday for the most spectacular kites you will ever see. During season there is a reasonably priced refreshment stand that even has beer. A small lagoon... More

I wanted to make it to Horseshoe Bay just because I was told I should, well am I ever glad I did . this is by far the most amazingly beautiful beach I've ever encountered. The rock formations along with the pink sand are absolutely breath taking !!! Unlike any beach I've ever experienced !!!
