This Bermuda beach, the longest on the island, snakes along a half-mile of the island's southern coast. Vacationers report a pleasant breeze at Warwick Long Bay during the summer months. But take note: Those winds feel like a chilly blast come wintertime. Warwick Long is great for families because it has an inner reef that safeguards against strong waves. Plus it's never as crowded as Horseshoe Bay. 

Recent Warwick visitors enjoyed the beautiful, clear water and soft, pink sand and recommend bringing a camera. The beach is secluded and perfect for peaceful walks on the beach or even horseback riding – both of which past visitors raved about. 

Warwick Long is accessible by public transportation; to get to this beach, you can take the No. 7 bus from Hamilton. All public beaches in Bermuda are open from sunrise to sunset. Access is free. Note that there are limited facilities at Warwick. You'll find bathrooms at the parking lot, which is where concession stands set up shop in the summer for beach gear rental and snacks. Plan to pack your own food and water.

#1 Horseshoe Bay Beach

Southampton parish's Horseshoe Bay is the most photographed (and famous) beach in Bermuda, making it hard to score a prime spot on the sand, especially if a cruise ship is in town. The blushing sand at Horseshoe is gorgeous at any time of year, but the water is chilly from September to May, so unless you enjoy a frigid dip, you should steer clear of the tide after Labor Day. But 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.

Recent Horseshoe Bay beachgoers said the views are stunning and the pink sand is breathtaking; some tout it as the best beach in Bermuda, which may be why many also complain about the heavy crowds. Travelers also warn that the ocean waters can be rough with a strong undertow. Luckily, you can rest easy with your kids playing in the waves because this beach employs lifeguards. Plus, Port Royal Cove offers an enclosed part of the beach that keeps the waves out. If you get hungry, there are plenty of beachside eateries to choose from.
