Those on the hunt for pink sand can skip the bustle of Bermuda’s famous Horseshoe Bay and venture over to this pink sand, turquoise sea paradise in Southampton (right down the coastline from The Reefs Resort). Not only is the beach equally top-notch, but coral reefs with an abundance of sea life are just a short swim away—and you can rent snorkeling gear right on the sand.

A pristine, half-mile stretch of coastline on the south shore, this quiet beach is a favorite among locals. Dramatic rock formations jut up from the piercing aqua water. Nearby reefs temper the waves, making the surf gentle enough for lazy afternoon floating.
An extension of Warwick Long Bay, this picturesque beach is encircled by cliffs and rock formations, separating it from the sea and creating a serene feel. It’s perhaps one of the tiniest beaches in Bermuda, but is consistently ranked among the island’s most beautiful.

Nature enthusiasts will revel in the scenery on this white-sand beach, located on the northeast end of the island (right near the airport, and only a short drive to the fabulous Rosewood Tucker’s Point hotel) and accessible only on foot. It’s one of a handful of public beaches in the Cooper’s Island Nature Reserve, a peninsula formerly occupied by a NASA space tracking station that’s now home to a bounty of wildlife, from tropical birds to loggerhead turtles.

This small, rocky beach—located in Sandy’s Parish near the Dockyard—got its name from an old nearby bottle factory that discarded glass into the sea, only for it to be tossed around, smoothed out, and delivered right here by the tides. Now it’s a haven for sea glass lovers. Though it’s illegal to actually remove and keep pieces from the beach, the colorful finds and embedded sea glass artwork left behind by locals over the years is reason enough for a visit.
