My idea of a perfect day is sitting on a beautiful beach, and Bermuda was the ideal place to make this come true! The beaches on the island are some of the prettiest I’ve ever seen!
Bermuda was unique in that lots of beaches are connected by trails, so you can spend entire days hopping around between popular beaches and hidden coves. I’ve put together a guide to the beaches that you MUST visit on your trip to the dreamy island.
1. Horseshoe Bay
Horseshoe Bay is the most popular beach in Bermuda, and was named by TripAdvisor as one of the top 25 beaches in the world. It is truly beautiful, but be prepared for LOTS of tourists. You can definitely tell that it’s popular. We could hardly find a spot on the beach. The nice thing about Horseshoe Bay is that there is a huge rock that you can climb and the panoramic views from the top are just incredible. So if you’re planning a trip to Bermuda, be sure to plan a trip to Horseshoe Bay, even though you may have to share the slice of paradise.
2. Chaplin Bay
We actually had no idea that Chaplin Bay existed when we visited it. Horseshoe Bay is connected to lots of other coves via hiking trails, one of which is Jobson’s Cove. We stumbled upon Chaplin Bay on our way and decided to spend some time there. It was so beautiful and we pretty much had it to ourselves!
3. Jobson’s Cove
Jobson’s Cove is my favorite beach that we visited! I could have easily spent all day there. This secluded beach is framed by huge rocks, the snorkeling is incredible, and the views from the rocks cannot be beat. There were 2 beautiful parrotfish darting around the water, and after some treacherous climbing, I made it to the top of the rocks, where I was welcomed by an unforgettable view. Jobson’s Cove can’t be missed! Plus, it’s located right next to #4 on the list.
4. Warwick Long Bay
Warwick Long Bay is right next to Jobson’s Cove and is so beautiful. This long stretch of beach was 100% deserted. We had it all to ourselves! The beautiful rocks were perfect for photos, as well. If you stand on the cliffs, you have great views of Jobson’s Cove next door.
5. Elbow Beach
Our last day in Bermuda was very cloudy, but we made good use of the weather by spending the morning at the Crystal Caves (post coming soon!) In the afternoon, we decided to visit Elbow Beach, even though it was dreary and the waves were rough. Nevertheless, it was still beautiful, and absolutely worth the trip!
6. The Princess Beach Club
The Princess Beach Club is the Hamilton Princesss’s private beach. As guests at the Hamilton Princess, we decided to visit the beach for a day. There is a 20 minute shuttle ride to the beach club, and the view when you arrive is so picturesque! The Princess Beach Club was not only gorgeous, but there was so much to do! You could grab kayaks and paddleboards, and head out to a platform in the middle of the cove. The platform had places to tie your watersports equipment, and then you could lounge in the sun. There were huge Sunnylife floaties to relax on, hammocks located IN the water, a playground for kids, a fabulous beach bar, and Adirondack chairs to kick back in. I had such a great day at the Princess Beach Club!
7. Tobacco Bay
We didn’t actually go to Tobacco Bay, but we drove by it and stopped on the side of the road for some photos. It was absolutely gorgeous and we totally would have gone if we had more time!
If you’ve never been to Bermuda, it’s time to book a trip! The beaches alone are a reason to visit the island.
