The Beaches of Bermuda
Bermuda has a plethora of beautiful beaches of varying sizes and locations. Below are just a few of my favourites that I have frequented over the years.
Elbow beach – located in Paget Parish and home to Elbow Beach Resort. There is a public path to the beach area if you are not staying at the resort. If you’re looking for a place to splurge out on a romantic meal try Mickey’s Bistro and bar where you can dine under the stars right on the beach with options of a table in the water; this is open Seasonally from April to October. If you’re visiting in the low season Cafe Lido offers amazing food which is Mediterranean inspired.
Horseshoe Bay – This is possibly the most famous beach in Bermuda and is located in the Southampton Parish. Catch the number 9 bus and it drops you nearest to the beach although be warned there is a bit of a walk from the bus stop to the beach. There is a cafe here however; it is only open seasonally and closed during the low season so make sure to bring snacks and drinks if you’re visiting in the low season.
Spanish Point – Located in Pembroke this is a smaller beach and is a personal favourite of mine and is great for snorkelling. There are picnic table here in the park area and a mini mart not to far. You can get here by catching the number 4 bus.
Snorkel Park Beach – Located at the Dockyard this is also a smaller beach and there is an entrance fee of $5. As it’s located at the dockyard it is rather busy most of the time. You can rent snorkelling equipment here at $10 for half the kit or $20 for the full set.
Grotto bay – This is a private resort beach however you can make use of this if you are using their facilities such as the spa (highly recommended) or for water sports.
Warwick Long Bay Beach – This is the longest beach in Bermuda and is located in Warwick. Take the number 7 bus to get here; unlike horse there are no shower facilities or cafes here so be mindful of that and remember to bring plenty of water and snacks.
Fun Fact: the pink sand is caused by tiny fragments of coral and shells. Experience the pink sand at any beach located along the South Shore
