Horseshoe Beach is famous for the beautiful pink sand of Bermuda, the regurgitation of millions of parrotfish over centuries.
Horseshoe Bay is perhaps the most famous beach in Bermuda. It has been rated the #8 beach in the world by TripAdvisor. A very popular tourist spot, it lies on the main island’s south (Atlantic Ocean) coast, in the parish of Southampton. The sand of the beach is very fine and displays a very white colour. The beach is equipped with one lifeguard station which is manned during the summer between 10 AM and 6 PM. There is also a café where one can purchase lunch during the summer months, toilet facilities, showers and a foot-washing area for removing sand before departing. A shuttle bus is available from 11 am to 6 pm to transport beach-goers between the beach and the nearest bus stop. It will take one down the hill for $1 and up for $2. The Government provides a special bus service for tourist at the top of the hill that leaves about every 15 minutes. This service is there from about 12 to 6 pm. If you miss the last special bus the regular buses come about every 45 minutes and run til about 10 pm.
