Bermuda’s beaches are the jewels in the crown of this lovely holiday island. The sand is an extraordinary pinky white, gently lapped by water of turquoise blue. There are so many gorgeous beaches to choose from, and here’s just a taste of the best.

Horseshoe Bay
Horseshoe Bay is often dubbed Bermuda’s best beach, and for good reason. It’s easy to get to, linked by bus 7 from Hamilton; there are great facilities, including changing rooms, showers, beach chair rental and a cafe; kids are well catered for, with the wading pool and calm shallow waves providing safe swimming; and events are held to entertain all the family, from kite-flying to sandcastle competitions. There’s snorkel gear available for hire, and walking trails lead to surrounding coves like Warwick Long Bay Beach.

Elbow Beach
Near Hamilton in Paget Parish, Elbow Beach is a gently curved stretch of sand that’s handy to the city and surrounding resorts. Part of the beach is private, but the public areas of crisp white sand and dunes can be enjoyed by all. There’s coral reef snorkeling offshore, gentle waves for bodysurfing, and strolling vendors selling snacks and drinks.

Tobacco Bay Beach
Handy to the St. George’s cruise port, and ideal for making the most of your shore time, Tobacco Bay Beach is a snorkeling and sunbathing haven. Good facilities include equipment hire, showers, snack bar and changing room.

Church Bay Beach

In Southampton Parish off the south shore, Church Bay is a small but perfectly formed stretch of sand near the ruins of a former fort. It’s ideal for sun worshipping, swimming, snorkeling and relaxing, and there are snacks and drinks for sale on the beach.

Warwick Long Bay Beach

This empty stretch of pink sand is one of Bermuda’s longest beaches. Secluded and tranquil, there’s some great snorkeling in the tiny coves and on the surrounding reef. It’s only a short walk from Horseshoe Bay, or you can canter here on horseback. The waves can become quite choppy, so it’s not a swimming beach for kids, though the nearby playground provides alternative fun.
