If you can only visit one beach in Bermuda, make it Horseshoe Bay.
Located in Southampton parish, this crescent-shaped beach is the most iconic beach in all of Bermuda.
Frequently recognized as one of the world’s best beaches, contrasting hues of blush-pink coral sands and turquoise waters are truly a sight to behold.
Horseshoe Bay is a place where you can easily spend all day relaxing, with rental gear, food, and drinks easily accessible as well as a lifeguard during summer months.
Nearby Port Royal Cove, often referred to as Baby Beach, offers even calmer waters, making it ideal for familes.
Almost entirely surrounded by limestone rock formations, Jobson’s Cove’s shallow, sheltered bay is one of Bermuda’s most beautiful beaches.
A popular wedding and proposal location, Jobson’s Cove is part of South Shore Park, a series of trails running behind the sand dunes in Warwick Parish.
Since there are no facilities on the beach, you’ll have to plan accordingly and pack your own equipment and snacks. For this reason, it’s best to visit this beach for a couple of hours en route to other nearby beaches.
Bermuda’s longest beach sits adjacent to a large coral reef known for its colorful parrotfish, so it’s an ideal spot to go snorkeling on a calm day.
And because of its size, Warwick is the place to go to avoid the crowds.
It’s also the place to go for horseback riding, moonlit walks, and nature walks along the forested trails of South Shore Park.
Since Warwick Bay has very few onsite amenities directly on the beach, it’s a good idea to bring water and snacks when visiting. Near the parking area, there are restrooms, a playground, and concession stands during the warmer months.
Though part of the beach is privately owned by the Elbow Beach Bermuda Resort, most of Elbow Beach is public.
Given its proximity to Hamilton, the half-mile beach draws a mix of locals and tourists. Here, you’ll often find kitesurfers coasting over the waves on a windy day.
Concessions and beach rentals are not a problem at this beach due to the hotel’s presence, and be sure to book a table at Mickey’s Beach Bar, the only restaurant in Bermuda located directly on the beach.
