|About these ratings|
Southampton Parish's Horseshoe Bay is the most photographed, famous beach in Bermuda, and you'll have to rally hard for a good spot, especially if a cruise ship is in town. The blushing sand at Horseshoe is gorgeous at any time of year, but the water is downright frigid from September to May; unless you enjoy shivering, you should steer clear of the tide after Labor Day. Even in the colder months, Horseshoe is a great spot for a romantic stroll along the sand. And if you're in town during Easter you have to make a special trip to Horseshoe to see the beautiful handmade Bermudian kites flying high on Good Friday.
Summertime swimming at Horseshoe is glorious, and you can rest easy with your kids playing in the waves because this is one of the few public beaches in the Caribbean that employs lifeguards. If you get hungry, there's a nice beachside café where you can dine.
All public beaches in Bermuda are open from sunrise to sunset.
