Enjoy the pink sands of Bermuda at Horseshoe Bay, AND be sure to go out early in the morning and climb the rocks for a gorgeous view of the sunrise!

“Most beautiful beach in the world”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Horseshoe Bay Beach has to be one of the most beautiful beaches ever - crystal clear blue/turquoise water, amazing beach and an equally beautiful child friendly beach area at the western end - perfect and an absolute must for anyone visiting Bermuda

“Absolute Paradise”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

We docked in Bermuda for a full day as part of a 10-night Royal Caribbean cruise last August/September. One of the reps told us that Horseshoe Bay was a must-see and, as this was my first taste of a tropical island, I decided to hit the beach instead of venturing into the nearby Hamilton to shop as many other cruisers did.

It was the right choice. Not only was Hamilton a let down but, Horseshoe Bay was breathtaking. Pink sand, crystal clear aqua water and picturesque rocky outcrops, I felt as though I had found Paradise on Earth!

Two things to note; there is a steep walk down (and up) from the road to the beach. In the scorching weather, this was pretty torturous but, the view makes up for it entirely. Don't waste your money on the cabs that offer to ferry you up and down unless you really can't walk. Also, bring a picnic as the on-site bar/eatery is extremely expensive (Bermuda is expensive in general).

Horseshoe Bay was usurped by only one other beach on our entire cruise but, it is a true paradise and a real must-see.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

The pink sand and gorgeous turquoise sea make this a stunning beach to visit. Although January, and the beach was pretty deserted, my daughter and I found this was perfect to just stand and take in the breathtaking scenery.

If you vacation in Bermuda, and a beach lover, don't miss visiting this beautiful beach!

If you are traveling to the beach by bus - don't trust the bus driver to tell you when to get off - it's close to the Fairmont Southampton Hotel, and the bus stop has three arches, most have two.

“Beautiful Pink Sand”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

We loved to walk on the beach which was so deserted in January in spite of weather around 70 degrees. I swam in the 69 degree water as did a few other brave northern souls!
