About Bermuda

Horseshoe Bay, Bermuda

Horseshoe Bay is shaped just as the name suggests, and some readers believe it is unmatched in its natural beauty and facilities. With concession stands renting everything from snorkeling equipment to beach chairs—while selling sunscreen, snacks, and towels—visitors want for very little while visiting.

Reader Melody Parris said, "The beach I enjoy the most is Horseshoe Beach in Southampton Parish of Bermuda. Its pink pristine sand is absolutely beautiful. The waters are sparkling blue inviting you to dive in. Very often there are various beach sports going on—volleyball, sports team training, etc. There is also an annual sand sculpture competition which lends to creativity and a kite flying competition on Good Friday. You will find people swimming all year round. The beach is also periodically used for special events such as parties and shows."

Set your clock to island time with a Bermuda vacation. From the pink sand beaches to the seven championship golf courses, leisure activities are the name of the game on this laid-back Caribbean island.

The beaches offer more than blue water and sun-bathing; Bermuda activities such as snorkeling, kayaking, and body surfing are popular along the sandy shores. And spa culture is taken to the next level on this enchanting island. Guests can choose from a variety of treatments, including sugar and honey scrubs, chocolate cherry mud wraps, and eucalyptus saunas.


Flights to Bermuda land at the island's only airport, L.F. Wade International Airport.
