Horseshoe Bay Beach, Southampton Parish

Considered to be one of the top ten beaches in the world, Horseshoe Bay Beach features a curved stretch of pink sand against the backdrop of limestone rocks protruding into turquoise blue waters. If you find the main beach crowded, walk up over the dunes and look for one of the secluded coves. If you're a good swimmer, you can venture out a little offshore towards the rocks, where you'll find some excellent spots for snorkeling. You'll be greatly rewarded with sights of angelfish, parrotfish, snappers, and many other colorful sea creatures. Enjoy a cool beer or a soda on a patio of the beach cafe, which also offers a menu of burgers, hotdogs, chicken, and fish. Amenities include a small shop selling towels and T-shirts, as well as restrooms, changing booths, and showers near the entrance.

  • We spend New Year's holiday on the islands and traveled to many bays. This on was wonderful! No facilities were open that week but it was lovely and fun to explore!  more »
  • Took the number 7 bus from Hamilton. Bus stops at road down to beach and takes 5 minutes to walk with the whole path having stepped wooden decking. View point half way down good for whale-watching...  more »
  • It's a bit flatter than it was in previous years. Can still be a family beach with supervision. Occasional riptides.
  • Beautiful beach! When you come, do yourself this favor: don't sit where everyone is when you get to the beach. Instead walk left (facing the beach) all the way down towards the rocks. Once you walk through the rocks (easy pass) that is where there is beautiful secluded beaches are in between rocky outcroppings. There are many small beaches to choose from. Super peaceful place.
