Horseshoe Bay Questions

Recommended Posts



I've two questions about Horseshoe Bay in Bermuda...


1. How do we get there from the Royal Dockyard? Is there a bus, and if so which one?


2. I've heard there is a section of the beach that is off to the west and is shallow. We have small children and thought this would be a good spot for them. Does anyone have info?


Thanks very much in advance.

From the Royal Dockyard you can take Bus #7 and it will get you there. The bus driver will let you know when you get to HB. We've taken a taxi from Hamilton before but not from King's Wharf.....we've always taken the bus from there as it is a bit farther than from Hamilton.


When you walk onto Horseshoe Bay, turn to your right away from the main beach. There is a cove there that is good for small children.


Horsehoe Bay is one of our favorite beaches. I hope you enjoy it.

In addition to the #7 bus, there are buses marked SPECIAL and you will be directed to them if you look beachbound. Just look for the guy that seems to be orchestrating things.


This way, you will never stop for local traffic. It goes straight to the beaches.


Coming back, you will see SPECIALS and #7, but not all #7 goes back to dockside. Make sure it says Dockside, or ask the person driving. There may also be someone assisting with the buses.


The SPECIALS will take you back to the ship, so you don't have to do that long walk. The #7 just drops you at the bus stop, and then you have to walk (or wait for the shuttle).


BTW, unless there's something brewing, there's not a lot of waves. My then 4 YO played fine on the seashore. THis year at 7, she bravely swam over and under them.




And don't forget to walk EAST past the boulders. It's like a walk to another land.
