Almost everything you read says Horseshoe Bay is one of, if not the most beautiful beaches in Bermuda. Believe it! Beautiful sand, although only partially pink. Beautifully clear blue water and beautiful scenery. A restaurant/ fast food eatery as well as restrooms right there. Can't...More

Visited here on a recent cruise to Bermuda and it’s easy to see why it’s one of the best in the world. Buses and taxi are very accessible from the cruise port. Shared taxis are approx $40 dollars split between your group you can share...More

We took a taxi ride rather than the bus ride every one says to take, it is a much better idea. You need to rent your umbrellas and chairs, but they move them down the beach for you. The water was the perfect color, temperature,...More

Great beach, especially if you want to see and walk on pink sand! Lots of waves crashing over rocks. Water warm enough to swim early November.

Not sure the sand is exactly pink, but the water is beautiful and there is a nice spot of calm water for kids to play safely. Not much for food, but there are changing areas and friendly workers

One of the most beautiful beaches anywhere. Powder-soft pinkish sand, crystal-clear aqua-blue water. It was fun to walk around the unique rock outcroppings that create numerous coves and secluded swimming areas. Waves crashing against the rocks were mesmerizing, like staring at a fire or fish...More

We went to Horseshoe Bay Beach via bus during our stay - the bus stop is across from the entrance of the beach access road. There is a plank/dock-like sidewalk with steps that lead to the beach area. We went during off season (November) on...More

This is the main beach that tourists go to, especially from cruise ships because there is a shuttle that goes here from the dockyard. It is a pink sand beach and is absolutely gorgeous, with lots of cool rock formations at each end. However, it...More

I wouldn’t say it’s much of a beach but you should look into snorkel park. It’s a $5 entry but it’s located in the area you dock.
