Cliff Jumping and Pink Sandy Beaches

Today we went to the famous pink sand beach, Horshoe Bay beach in Bermuda. We hopped onto the local bus which only took about an hour drive from our hotel. I highly recommend taking a bus to get around the island instead of a taxi because that could cost you anywhere from $70-$150 since the prices are so high in Bermuda. Once we arrived at the beach it was absolutely breathtaking! The entire beach consisted of pink sand and there was a huge cliff that you could climb and also jump off of. Also one great thing aboutΒ this beach is that there are no seaweed or little pebbles anywhere on the beach or in the water so it’s honestly the softest sand in the world. In the water there are also a number of brightly colored fish and is beach is also connected to Elbow beach so you can walk to and from each beach.

There is a big rock formation located on the east side of the beach, and youΒ are allowed to climb it and jump off, but make sure to jump straight out in the front of the rock and not on the sides because it would be a little too shallow of water to jump in. There are also a number of other rock formations on the beach further out from the rock I climbed, which wasn’t hard to climb at all. Also there are more rocks on the west side of the beach which is not as high and the water is not as shallow, so if you are not up to jumping off a big cliff then I recommend trying the rocks on the left side of the beach. This is definitely one of the things that I recommend anyone traveling to Horseshoe Bay Beach must try.

      1. I would definitely recommend saving up money for Bermuda as most of the island was pretty expensive, the best time to go is around May during the shoulder season so you can get about $200 off your hotel room costs and take the local bus instead of a taxi it will definitely help cut some costs πŸ™‚
