Horseshoe Bay Beach
Horseshoe Bay Beach, one of the most beautiful stretches of sand in the world. The ideal location for cruise ship visitors, there is plenty to do here. Stake your claim with a beach chair or towel, and soak in the sun all day. Plan your day here or stop by on a whim, as umbrellas and towels are available to rent. Sip your frozen drink, splash in the waves, and enjoy your time in paradise.

This is the perfect location for those looking for an almost-private beach experience. Coves and inlets give visitors the feeling of being on their very own beach while they share the soft sand with others. A bus trip away from the cruise port, beach-goers say it is worth the travel to spend time at this secluded spot. Walk barefoot along the sandy beach, or slip on some shoes and go for an adventurous hike along the rocks.
A short hike down the shore from Horseshoe Beach, Jobson’s Cove provides a more private beach experience. This is the perfect location for those visiting Bermuda as a family or with small children. The cove creates a protected space, making it easier to keep an eye on children who may be playing in the water or skipping down the beach. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a parrot fish, which are known to frequent the cove’s waters.
If amazing views are high on your list of requirements, this beach is a must. With breathtaking surroundings, Elbow Beach is also a gorgeous location for destination weddings. The nearby resort and spa offers a variety of beachfront venues to host events from weddings to family get-togethers. No matter how much time you spend on the sands of Elbow Beach, you are guaranteed to fall in love.
A great place for thrill-seekers, Windsor Beach appeals to many with the opportunities to relax on the beach or go on an adventure. Rock climbers enjoy the nearby opportunities for climbing, and kayak tours are available for those looking to get out on the water. Whether on shore or at sea, you are sure to see some unbelievable waves crash through the crystal-clear water.
