The Disney beach shore excursion will probably only take you to the same PUBLIC beach--Horseshoe Bay Beach-- that you can get just as easily all on your own, via Horseshoe Bay Beach Shuttles ($7 per person one way) from your King's/Heritage Wharf cruise ship pier at the Royal Naval Dockyard complex. There is a concessionarire (RUM BUM'S BEACH BAR-- https://rumbumbeachbar.com/ )at Horseshoe Bay Beach that rents chaise lounge and beach umbrellas...serves basic '..beach food..' . There are also full bathroom and changing room facilities at the beach.
There are a few different beaches that you can visit from the cruise ship terminal on your own using either public transportation or a taxi. As previously suggested our famous Horseshoe Bay is one that you can visit approx a 20 min drive from the Royal Naval Dockyard by either a shuttle service or the number 7 route bus. gotobermuda.com/profile/…about
You might also be interested in visiting the Warwick Long Bay just a few mins further down which is very popular among visitors and can also be accessed from the number 7 bus route gotobermuda.com/profile/…about
Here is our bus schedule for you to view the departure times gotobermuda.com/sites/default/master/files/b… and our Handy Reference Map so that you can see the distance to your destination gotobermuda.com/sites/…bermuda-map-web.pdf
The one thing I can advise and this is especially true for Bermuda because the transportation system can be a little iffy, be very wary of your time if not booking your excursion on the last day on the island through the ship because if you are late getting back to the ship you will most likely be left behind and that would put you in a pickle getting home.
>>>...Bermuda because the transportation system can be a little iffy...<<<
That's curious....because the VAST OVERWHELMING MAJORITY of visitors to Bermuda, over MANY YEARS, who've made use of Bermuda's public transportation system during their stays to get out 'n about via public buses and ferries, consistently report the system to be excellent and relatively easy to figure out and use and other similar praises....anything but "..iffy..". But I suppose that if a rider has difficulty reading and understanding simple bus or ferry schedules or reading a basic map....I suppose it could seem "..iffy..".
