All along our fine shores you can find beaches bathed in pink sand, made from finely pulverized remains of calcium carbonate shells and skeletons of invertebrates such as corals and clams. The pink sand makes the already poetic scenery that much harder to resist. Once you step foot on Horseshoe Bay Beach you will realize why it is the most celebrated on the island. The long, sweeping crescent of pink sand makes it a popular choice any time of year. The nearby Beach House offers snacks, rentals and changing facilities.
BEST ART AND CULTURE
The National Museum of Bermuda is set within the Keep, a sprawling six-acre fortress at the edge of the Royal Naval Dockyard. Eight historic buildings, including old munitions warehouses and the newly restored Commissioner's House, contain a great variety of exhibitions on our rich history. Whether taking in some local history, enjoying stunning views from the ramparts, or exploring Bermuda's largest fort, there is plenty to see and learn at this important cultural attraction.

One step on our shores and you’ll understand why we say, “Feel the Love”. You’ll discover romance at every corner, from our unique Moongates to our pink sands.
