If you’re looking for amazing beaches, then look no further than Horseshoe Bay, Bermuda. This pink sand beach is consistently rated as one of the best beaches in the world. I’m going to show you why it’s one of the best beaches and maybe you’ll add it to your MUST SEE bucket list.
Not located in the geographical Caribbean, Bermuda is located in the mid Atlantic all by itself. Don’t think it’s lonely though, this fishing hook shaped island has sunk its dangerous end into many a visitor.
There’s just something special about Bermuda. It maybe the delicious Dark N’ Stormys, the stylish Bermuda shorts or it could be breathtaking beaches like Horseshoe Bay–but past visitors keep coming back and sing the island’s praises to all that will listen.
One of Bermuda’s biggest draws is the world famous Horseshoe Bay. It’s arguably the most popular beach on Bermuda and people from all over flock to its sandy shore. Located on the island’s south side, Horseshoe Bay Beach is composed of white and pink sand of which Bermuda is so famous for.
Here are a video and several photos of Horseshoe Bay that will give you a better idea of the beauty you’ll find.

How Do You Get To Horseshoe Bay?
As I mentioned before, Horseshoe Bay is located on Bermuda’s south shore. If you are visiting by cruise ship, the beach is easy to get to via the #7 bus if you’re coming from the Royal Naval Dockyard or from Hamilton. You also get there by renting a scooter or one of Bermuda’s small two-seat electric cars.
