are known for their intriguing pink color, broken seashells and white sand. Some beaches are long and expansive while others are dotted with black volcanic rock jutting over the shoreline. While Bermuda's beaches offer plenty of relaxation and recreational options, they can take a while to reach because tourists are not permitted to rent cars.
Bermuda beaches are mostly light pink in color from single-celled red skeletons called Red Foram washing up to shore and mixing with broken shells and white sand.
Jagged, black, volcanic rock can be found along Bermuda beaches and creates breaking waves and undercurrents.
Bermuda beaches like Horseshoe Bay are open to the public, while others including Natural Arches and Elbow beach are only available for private use by hotels and private residences.
Beaches in Bermuda are well stocked with body board, raft, kayak and water equipment rental, as well as snacks, soft drinks and beer for sale.
Bermuda beaches vary from expansive to jagged with volcanic rock, much like Tobacco Bay, and do not always have lifeguards on duty.
Bermuda does not allow tourists to rent cars. Walking, renting mopeds, hailing a cab and taking the public bus is the only way to reach Bermuda beaches including Deep Bay.
