Hiking in Bermuda

Yes, you can walk a trail along the South Shore beaches. You you can usually pick it up at any of the beches. It's more of a path in some places but very beautiful along the way.

 

The Railtrail is also another place to hike. It is disjointed but it can be hiked in the segments that are open.

There is a book called Hiking Bermuda by Cecile Davidson that has some great info on day hikes w/maps and trail descriptions. I don't think it's available from Amazon or other chain book stores but you can order it directly from The Bookmart in Bermuda (Google) -- if they still have it. Hope this helps.

How long would it take to walk leisurely the South Shore trail from Church Bay to Jobson Cove ?

We haven't walked that part but it's about 2 miles if that helps. We were lazy, but also trying to get the most out of the day so we hopped on the bus between those two points.

There is no trail between these two beaches. Well, technically there is and it's called South Shore Road. What you are looking for is what us locals call the "dunes". It's a path that goes from Warwick Long Bay to Horseshoe Bay and it is well woth the hike. Bring extra memory cards for your camera. You will pass all manner of tiny hidden beaches along the path, Jobson's included. If you were to walk non-stop at a slow pace you could do it in an hour. If you really like pink sand beaches you could take all day walking the dunes, stopping to relax and swim here and there. Be sure to bring drinks with you cos if you start at Warwick Long Bay, the only place to buy drinks is at Horseshoe, at the end.

You can also start at Astwood Park and walk east, but there is quite a bit of climbing to do on some rather sharp rocks if you go at high tide. There also isn't an obvious way to leave the beach once you reach the end, we usually walk back to Astwood, it looks different walking the opposite direction. I wouldn't recommend it unless you are pretty adventurous.
