Features
Free, Popular with locals, Family-friendly

Bermuda is known the world over for its powdery pink sand beaches—a pale rose hue created by microorganisms called red foram—and this south shore crescent is the island’s most famous. It’s also one of the busiest, since cruise shippers flock to this well-appointed beach for its chair and umbrella rentals, showers and changing room facilities, and no-frills café, which serves burgers, fries, and hot dogs. Horseshoe is also popular with families since it’s one of the few island beaches with full-time lifeguards and a calm, current free cove lovingly referred to by locals as Baby Beach. Tip: Walk east along the shore and you’ll find quiet secluded coves to call your own.
