The Beaches of Bermuda - A Photo Essay

Not a beach, but waves crashing rocks in Bermuda
Greetings tonight from Columbus, Ohio, at essentially the halfway point back home to Dallas.  I normally don't like to put posts up immediately about places I've just visited - I like to take the extra time to think about what to write and how exactly to organize things - but I really didn't want to be days late with a post again.  Needing something quick to put up, I thought I'd leave all of you with some photos of the great beaches we saw in Bermuda during our short visit there.  Not to worry, I will eventually have a series of posts up about my trip, but in the meantime, enjoy - and start working on finding your beach this summer!  NOTE:  Photos posted in the order we visited them.


Alexandra Battery Beach - St. George's

A small pink sand beach about a mile east of St. George's town.  You can also find a few pieces of sea glass here if you are lucky.  (I'll talk about this in a future post, but Bermuda is especially famous for pink sand beaches, a coloration caused by the corals that surround the island.)


St. Catherine's Beach - St. George's

A white sand beach adjacent to Ft. St. Catherine, about a mile northeast of St. George's town.



Tobacco Bay Beach - St. George's

A popular pink sand beach about a mile north of St. George's Town, and 1/2 a mile north of Ft. St. Catherine.  There is also a fairly decent sized lagoon adjacent to the beach.



Horseshoe Bay Beach - Southampton Parish

Arguably Bermuda's most famous beach, and one that tops pretty much every "must see" list on all things Bermuda.  Located about halfway between Hamilton and the Royal Naval Dockyard (where the cruise ships dock).



Chaplin Bay Beach - Southampton Parish

Another pink sand beach about 1/2-3/4 mile east of its more famous cousin, Horsehoe Bay.



Jobson's Cove - Warwick Parish

A small but beautiful pink sand beach/lagoon about a little further east of Chaplin Bay beach.



And last but not least...

Warwick Long Bay Beach - Warwick Parish

Much less famous (and crowded) than Horseshoe Bay, but the beach is actually a little longer, and just as beautiful.  About a 45-60 minute walk (I'd guess 1 1/2-2 miles) east of Horseshoe Bay, via Chaplin Bay, Jobson's Cove, and a series of other small beaches and coves along the way.



Stay tuned for a detailed trip report, including all of these beaches, over the coming weeks!
