If you like long walks on the beach, you’re in luck. Bermuda has miles of stunning coastline on its secluded shores – plenty of space to stretch your legs, slow down and savour a more relaxed pace.
South Shore Walking Trail: Your Must-Do Beach Walk
Four of Bermuda's renowned South Shore beaches are connected by a walking trail considered by some to be the most beautiful beach walk in the world. If you only make time for one great stroll, make it this one.
Beginning at world-famous Horseshoe Bay Beach in Southampton Parish, you can walk all the way to Warwick Long Bay Beach in Warwick Parish along South Shore Park. It's a little over a mile, crossing over sand dunes and rock formations between expanses of fine, pink sand.
As you walk northeast up Horseshoe Bay Beach, you'll come first to Chaplin's Bay Beach, an intimate pink-sand beach with vertical rock walls on either side and rock formations off shore. It's a favourite wedding spot.
Next is Jobson's Cove, a secluded beach almost completely surrounded by towering limestone cliffs. Across the rocks and dunes, you'll find spectacular Warwick Long Bay Beach, an ideal spot to take a break for swimming, sunbathing or snorkelling.
