Find a Bermuda Beach and claim it as your own…
From East to West there are approximately 34 sandy beaches and coves in Bermuda. Here are a few of our favourites and if you look closely you will find tiny traces of pink sand on some and handfuls of pink sand on others. If you’re interested in learning more about which beaches have which grades of sand and the various characteristics within, The Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, also known as the Ocean Discover Centre at BUEI has a fabulous interactive touch display.
There is a choice of beautiful beaches to choose from on St. David’s Island in the east end: Clearwater Beach is next to a playground and has a seasonal beach house; Turtle Bay is a lovely cove which is great for snorkeling, and the nature reserve boasts stretches of soft sand at the end of every path. Bus 6 from St. George’s
Famous for its stunning limestone formations – natural sculptures that emerge from the glassy water, this picturesque, sheltered cove is also a snorkelers’ dream. The short walk from the old town of St. George is well worth it. There is a beach house for rentals, food and drink, in the summer months.
Takes about 20 minutes to reach Tobacco Bay beach from Kings Square, St. George’s
John Smith’s Bay
Off the beaten track in Smith’s parish, this popular locals’ beach is a little less crowded than the western south shore destinations, but still boasts soft sand and great swimming and snorkeling. The Harrington Hundreds grocery store is just a few minutes away by moped if you want to make your own picnic. Bus route 1
A parent’s dream beach, Shelly Bay boasts warm, shallow water, a soft sandy bottom and backs on to a playground and sports field. A favourite for kids and novice swimmers – and close to the bus stop. Bus route 10 or 11
Warwick Long Bay
To truly grasp the beauty of Bermuda’s south shore, walk the length of Warwick Long Bay and clamber across the rocks, or take a detour over the sand dunes, to Jobson Cove and Chaplin Bay. On a quiet day in the spring and summer you will see more longtails than fellow tourists. Bus route 7
A crescent of soft, pink sand, lapped by clear blue water, fringed by sand dunes and bordered with sandstone cliffs, garnished with swaying palms – Horseshoe, in Southampton Parish, is the mecca of the island’s beaches and a must for every Bermuda visitor. Rum Bum Beach House is open in the summer months. Bus route 7
Swim with shoals of brightly coloured parrot fish among the pristine coral reef that pierce the water just yards from shore at this small south shore bay, widely revered as Bermuda’s best beach for snorkelers. Bus route 7
Set Out With Take-Out and Enjoy It In A Garden

Outside viewing only. 30 minute walk along Ferry Road once you reach St. George’s
Fort St. Catherine, St. George’s
Packed with historic exhibits, artifacts, and a well preserved interior, this stone built fort houses a museum and is one of Bermudas most impressive structures and in the old artillery store there is an exhibit of the fort’s development over four centuries.
From Kings Square take Duke of York Street, take a left at Somers Super Market towards Duke of Kent Street. Keep going and you will reach Tobacco Bay. Fort St. Catherine is a 5 minute walk from there.
Fort Hamilton, Pembroke
Enjoy magnificent views over the City of Hamilton and its harbour. The upper levels and battlements have been landscaped with lawns, which make a fine place for a picnic. Entry is across a wooden bridge over the deep dry-moat and there are plenty of cannons and ramparts inside. If walking from Front Street head east and take a left towards King Street. Walk up the steep incline of Kings Street and turn right to Happy Valley Road. Fort Hamilton is on your right.

Scaur Hill Fort & Park, Somerset Road, Sandys
This fort was built to defend the Royal Naval Dockyard against the Americans during the war of 1812. Then in the 1940s, American guns defended the fort during WWII.While exploring, look for the deep gun pits and galleries which go deep into the hillside. The ramparts offer spectacular views of Ely’s Harbour and the Great Sound.
