Pink Sand and big waves

This beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on Bermuda. The soft pink sand feels great under your bare feet and the waves are outstanding for board or body surfing.

If you are staying at the Fairmont Southampton, be sure to go through the gate to Horseshoe Bay. The views of the ocean between rock formations are spectacular! This beach is exquisite! I think ranked at some point the 4th best beach in the world! At first you will think it crowded....but take the time to walk the beach! So... More

Tropical Storm Karl brought some big waves on the day we were here. The water was beautiful. The sand was soft and pink. There were plenty of chairs and umbrellas for the large crowd from our cruise ship.

Very nice...first day we arrived it was raining but water still pleasant. Second day ,morning was bright sunny water was calm in the cove. Definitely rent a scooter to enjoy other beaches like church recreation area. It's just before Horseshoe bay. Be mindful of current, it can really take you in,but beautiful.

If you don't wanna spend for a taxi or bus or if you don't know how to ride a moped then you're best bit is to stay at the Fairmont South Hampton. This is very close to the Horseshoe bay beach. The water is calm and the scenery is marvelous. Shuttle is free or you can also walk.

There were no cruise ships in port so the beach had maybe 30 people. Warm weather, easy to snorkel, clear water. Bring bread and feed the fish!

I just went for my second time on a cruise to Bermuda. I went again to one of the most picturesque beaches I have ever visited. The sands are famous for it's silky smoothness and pink color. You can rent chairs and umbrellas for a fee. The horseshoe shape beach is surrounded by beautiful volcanic looking rocks and various vegetation.... More

Although this is a gorgeous beach I don't recommend going there when cruise ships are in port. They bus them in by the herd and line up the chairs and umbrellas like cattle. Go on a day or afternoon when ships are not on island. They have food bar and beach rentals.

Voted one of the top 10 beaches in the world. It's definitely a must see on the island! Beautiful pink sands, guaranteed weather, why wouldn't you go?! Bus route from Hamilton takes you right there. Just ask the driver to call out the stop and it's a short jaunt downhill to paradise. Busses run people up from the beach because... More

We went here on Good Friday to see and join in with the kite flying fun. The water color is out of this world, the bluest I've seen anywhere. We had fish filled hot cross buns which were different! If you are there at Easter it is worth going to, but I suspect at a time this beach is just... More
