Horseshoe Bay is perhaps the most famous beach in Bermuda. It has been rated the #8 beach in the world by TripAdvisor. A very popular tourist spot, it lies on the main island's south (Atlantic Ocean) coast, in the parish of Southampton. The sand of the beach is very fine and displays a very white colour. The beach is equipped with one lifeguard station which is manned during the summer between 10 AM and 6 PM. There is also a café where one can purchase lunch during the summer months, toilet facilities, showers and a foot-washing area for removing sand before departing. A shuttle bus is available from 11 am to 6 pm to transport beach-goers between the beach and the nearest bus stop. It will take one down the hill for $1 and up for $2. The Government provides a special bus service for tourist at the top of the hill that leaves about every 15 minutes. This service is there from about 12 to 6 pm. If you miss the last special bus the regular buses come about every 45 minutes and run til about 10 pm.
A beach volleyball competition takes place once a week in the summer months, and is a regular activity for both tourists and locals alike. Horseshoe Bay is also the usual location for a New Years party organised by those members of the significant ex-pat population who have not opted to go overseas for the season.
