The Best Beaches in Bermuda
Relax on Bermuda’s Longest Beach
Warwick Long Bay got its name because it is the longest beach on the island. The beach has quite a bit of natural beauty to explore with secluded coves, tide pools and little rock outcroppings. Sunbathers will enjoy the solitude of this spot along with the pretty pink sand.
On the land Warwick Long Bay has opportunities for active people. The land is full of cedar and grape trees, shallow dunes, and low grass. The area has many picturesque walking trails perfect for joggers and horseback riders too.
Play the Day Away
Elbow Beach is located just a few minutes’ drive from the city of Hamilton. The beach has two tiers, the upper tier is lined with chaises, while the lower tier is the playground. The coral reefs are very close to the shore at the beach, and this keeps the water calm, making it ideal for swimming and snorkeling.
On the land, the locals love to play volleyball in the evenings, and anyone is welcome to join. Locals and visitors alike enjoy taking walks on the beach. The Pollockshields shipwreck is also right off the shore, and the best way to see it is through an escorted boat or kayak tour.
Snorkel Along the Coral Reef
The Church Bay beach is a popular spot for snorkelers. Just under the surface of the water, the coral reef protects the beach from high surf. A great number of fish gather here, including parrotfish, butterflyfish, hogfish, and damselfish swimming along the brain coral and fan coral.
On the land, Church Bay hosts Food Forest on Saturdays, where you can purchase fresh produce and plants. Church Bay Park is adjacent to the beach and has picnic areas and public restrooms. If you hike the hill located above the beach, you will get treated with a stunning view of the bay.
Perfect Your Tan
Clearwater Beach is a hotspot for locals, but not as well known by the tourists. This area is known as a party spot on the weekends, but otherwise it is a serene spot for sunbathing and swimming. Beach dwellers are able to rent equipment and buy snacks and drinks from vendors in the area.
Take some time and explore Cooper’s Island Nature Reserve. The reserve has much to offer active people including many extensive walking trails, swimming, bird watching, turtle spotting, and jaw dropping views of Castle Harbour. Guests can climb to the top of the Wildlife Observation Tower and spot whales, birds, and other wildlife.
Stick Your Toes in Salmon-Pink Sand
Horseshoe Bay Beach is the quintessential Bermuda beach. It is no wonder that this is the most photographed beach on the island and is a must see while in Bermuda. The area has pink sand and beautiful teal colored water that attracts locals and tourists in the summer. This expansive horseshoe shaped beach is surrounded by limestone cliffs and large reefs that are perfect for snorkeling.
The adjacent kiddy beach with its low tide, is perfect for the little ones to spend time in the water. Out of the water, the area is a great place for sunbathing, volleyball, or jogging. When you get hungry, there is a nearby concession stand full of goodies.
