Horseshoe Bay is easily reached by public transport and is only a short walk from the main road. The beach itself is stunning with pink sands and blue water - even though we visited in November and the wind was up. That wind soon drove...More

We wanted to see the pink sand which wasn't too pink in the winter sunlight but were able to enjoy the views with cool rock formations! Was not crowded at all being that it wasn't really beach season but was still nice!

The view from this beach is fantastic. No reason not to stop by if you are in the area! And just like all other areas, it is very clean.

We spent a day here relaxing and enjoying the atmosphere. We took the bus which dropped us off at the furthest spot then walked the remainder (about a 10 minute hilly walk). The water was calm even though it was a moderately windy day. The...More

Horseshoe is a beautiful, clean beach. My husband and I took a bus from our resort in Somerset to visit Horseshoe. We weren't disappointed. The beach is large with a few nooks for children to swim. We enjoyed our visit.
