Bermuda has been one of my favorite places in the world to visit and I have been there four times, via cruise ship. My last visit was in 2004. It is a spectacular place. There are many ways to enjoy yourself in Bermuda. You typically see tourists and commuters alike, hopping on a moped to travel around town. Of course, one of the greatest attractions for tourists and Bermuda residents are the precious beaches, renowned for the pink sand.
In Bermuda, it is not difficult to hop on a local bus (as opposed to a tour bus), travel like a Bermuda resident, meet people and get advice about the good beaches to go to. When you follow the advice, you might find yourself stumbling upon some truly beautiful beaches that are not neccessarily advertised as beaches for tourists.
They might be beaches that local children and parents love to go to on the average day, around 3 or 4pm, after the day's school session has ended. You might literally see excited children in their school uniforms, headed to the changing rooms for a relaxing late afternoon at the beach.
One such beach is called Shelly Bay. There are also: Tobacco Bay, Horseshoe Bay and Jobson's Cove among others.
Bermuda is full of rich, vibrant colors including the paint of houses, stores and other local businesses. It is no different at the beach. In addition to the brilliant natural pink sand, blue skies and blue sea, at Shelly Bay, the color white has been used a lot to paint the facilities and a signature archway. At Tobacco Bay, the color orange is used for an archway and for the nearby building housing the changing facilities for the beach. Each beach seems to have its signature color.
Below are some photos of the lovely beaches of Bermuda.
