Strap on those flippers: the calm, sheltered waters of the bay make this beach a great place to snorkel.

One of my favorite beaches on Bermuda's gorgeous south shore. Uncrowded and peaceful, you can find your own private patch of pink sand and just relax or put on your snorkeling gear and have a great time.

This beach is good for snorkeling but very rough waves when we went. But we could see a big fish right from the beach. No facilities to change. Not really much of a beach and very rocky

Let the buses go to horseshoe bay visit this semi private beach with the long tails and enjoy, snorkeling is good and clothing optional as we have seen.

Very beautiful but small beach area. The water was amazing with all of the reefs so close by the beach!

I paid a round trip bus fare of $9.00 and I believe the taxi is double that price. Also, if you are offered the "Special Trip" bus do so because the other bus does local stops and take a little longer to get there. You will... More
