At the request of RC, we waited 20-30 minutes for a "guide" to tell us to follow the green footprints on the ground. Once arriving we had our 2 chairs and umbrella set out to enjoy our day. Anyone who is a fan of fish, I encourage you to get a snorkeling set and go underwater. The seas were a bit murky but you could clearly see beautifully colored fish. However, be sure your breathing apparatus is clean and clear, mine had some type of semi-solid white goo residue around the mouth-piece area that I thankfully saw before I put it on.
Took a Public Bus here. Beautiful beach. Gets crowded, but not crazy. Pink sand, gorgeous water, and nice rock cliff back drops (which you can climb and get amazing views of the beach and ocean). Chairs & Umbrellas available for rent. Combo deal for $40 which consists of 2 chairs and a umbrella. There is also a little cove you can enjoy and get a nice spot if you get there early. There are bathrooms, a gift shop, and a bar/grill on site. If you don't take a Taxi or Private excursion, there is a decent sized hill you have to climb up and down to get to and from the Bus Stop.
Beach very pretty and definitely worth a visit. Book through cruise ship because it was the 3rd day and we were to leave at 2:30 pm so did not want to take a chance in missing the ship. Next time, will just take the taxi for $7/person each way which is a lot cheaper.
BEAUTIFUL BEACH. $40 to rent umbrella and chair but worth it to be protected. Water is amazing, snorkeling is so cool and the pictures I took were AMAZING too. They also have a place to eat and drink and use the restroom very nice...
Went to the bay and got to jump off a 25 foot cliff into the ocean. Oh yeah so did my 12 years old nephew and 9 year old niece. The cafe there very friendly they even gave my wife and our three girlfriends free shots of...WHOOO HOOO
Only booked through Royal because I did not want to be too late and miss our sailing. Somewhat disorganized and had to wait some time before actually leaving for the beach. However, the beach itself is my family's most favorite in the world! This has probably been our 7th trip to Bermuda and our 20th to Horseshoe Bay. Hint; walk to the left when facing the beach and you will discover more undisturbed, just as beautiful beaches where the watre isactuall y even clener than the main beach because there are so much fewer people stirring up the fine pink sand.
The beach is awesome and a must visit. The cost and time to go are not from the ship's perspective. The ship's cost is $18 roundtrip per person for 3 hours. You can beat that with $7 one way and stay longer per person.
