Beautiful island, the beaches are both exception. Would go again - take the opportunity to wander the beach as there are many quiet secluded spots further down.

Traveled by cab from cruise ship. Nice soft, white sand and clear, blue water. A little seaweed to wade through to get to the perfect spot in the water. Despite being a popular cruise ship destination, not too crowded, still able to get a chair...More

We purchased a bus pass and walked down to the beach and absolutely loved it! Worth the visit even though it's very touristy.

Horsehoe Beach is a very nice Beach with soft sand & nice clear turquoise water. It does tend to get very crowded but still worth visiting if you go to Bermuda. They do chair rentals for $50, you get 2 Beach Chairs & 1 Umbrella...More

We did not rent snorkel equipment. The 2 chairs and umbrella we rented at Horseshoe Bay were $50 for the day. The beach is beautiful and large. The hidden gem is the coves at the far end of the beach. Well worth a 10 minute... More
