Bermuda’s Official Travel Resource

Perhaps Bermuda’s most famous stretch of shoreline due to its crystal-clear water, pink sand and dramatic rocky cliffs, Horseshoe Bay Beach may just be the quintessential Bermuda beach. That means it can draw some pretty big crowds in summer. This southeast-facing beach is located along the South Shore in Southampton Parish. Amenities include changing facilities and nearby restrooms as well as a restaurant and bar close to the beach. A rocky outcrop separates this beach from gentle Port Royal Cove, where beachgoers can wade among colourful parrotfish.
