Bermuda Has Pink Sand Beaches & So Much More

Your ultimate guide to the tiny island in the middle of the Atlantic.

By: Noah Lehava

By the time you finish reading this, you’ll be enticed to book a trip to Bermuda. I can promise you that. For one, the little island in the middle of the Atlantic offers one of the most incredible and rare beach experiences ever: pink sand. And if you follow this guide, I’ll get you to the pinkest (non-touristy) beaches. Second are the sunset happy hours that cast golden-hour light like you’ve never seen, and delicious fresh dinners with symphonies of tree frogs serving as the soundtrack. Sold yet? Keep reading.

 


Beaches

There’s a reason this beach tops all the “Best Beaches” lists. It’s gorgeous. But because of its internet fame, weekends during high season can be quite busy. And because Bermuda doesn’t allow development on all but one of their beaches, Horseshoe Bay’s amenities are a draw for cruise ship passengers. So if you’re looking for solace, come here during weekdays.

Just a stone’s throw away from Horseshoe, there’s local-known hideaway Warwick Longbay. The stretch of pink sand and turquoise water is something we’d liken to a screensaver, but the true gem is the cove that’s tucked away through a sandy path. Protected from waves, the crystal-clear water is shallow and calm—almost like a pool but with tropical fish making an occasional appearance. You’ll be here all day. And maybe the next.

Bermuda is an island full of hidden beaches, and while Elbow Beach is widely known on the island, it can’t be missed. Just picture yourself drinking a Rum Swizzle here.

 


Stay

If you’re looking for a retreat, the newly renovated Rosewood Bermuda may just be the perfect option for you. It’s secluded and has its own private beach, which also happens to be Bermuda’s largest, so finding a stretch of pink sand that’s all your own is easy. Up your R&R at Sense Spa, or spend the afternoon in your poolside cabana.

You can’t beat this location. Right in the heart of town, the Hamilton Princess is walking distance from all the local shops and restaurants. Fun fact: Emily Ratajkowski just stayed there. It also boasts an impressive contemporary art collection featuring works by Banksy and Andy Warhol. Board the pink jitney to their private beach club on a secluded cove on the South Shore. Grab yourself a hammock that swings over water, or take out a kayak into the ocean.

 


Eat


 

Marcus’ at the Hamilton Princess

Whether you’re staying at the hotel or not, make a reservation at Marcus’ for Sunday brunch. The spread is in-cred-able and the views of the marina are unparalleled.

 

Beau Rivage at Belmont Newstead

For a lovely sunset dinner overlooking the water, head here. The wine selection is great too.

Coconuts

Fish tacos and fresh salads with a side of rosé and beach view is the draw of this casual beachside restaurant.

 

Devil’s Isle

If you’re looking for a yummy, healthy spot to refuel while in town, Devil’s Isle has some of the best farm-fresh eats. Think salads, fruit juices, and coffee.
