Bermuda is famous for them and it’s usually the first thing any visitor wants to experience firsthand. But the truth behind Bermuda’s famous pink beaches is a little different from popular perception. First, they’re not hot pink, so put those visions of neon wonderment away. Instead the beaches are a pinkish hue, created by the fragments of sea life found in the island’s extensive reef system. The beaches along with the amazingly blue waters make a day at the beach a visual treat.
My favorite beach wasn’t the famous Horseshoe Bay Beach, but a quieter neighbor - Warwick Long Bay Beach. Warwick extends for about half a mile and is the perfect place to find Bermuda’s pink sand. The Bay is near South Shore Park in Warwick Parish very close to Horseshoe. More than just laying on the beach though, my favorite thing to do there is to explore the many coves and tidal pools created by massive rocks lining the beach.
