Bermuda Beaches are famous for their beautiful pink sands and turquoise waters and, in fact, this island boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Bermuda has many large and small beaches and some wonderful ones are open to the public while others are private - properties of resorts and open to their guests only.

The beach sand is actually finely pulverized pieces of calcium carbonate shells mixed in with the skeletons of invertebrates like clams and corals. This sand is extremely fine and a pleasure to lay down on!

Because of the scenic beauty, one favorite pastime on the beaches in Bermuda is to get married. Oftentimes you'll see marriages being officiated over by ministers in Bermuda shorts and knee-high socks. Most of the beaches are on the south side of the island but there are some on the north. If you are swimming on the south side, however, you want to watch out for the rip tides and beware that the larger the surf is the tighter the pull on the rip will be.

Tobacco Bay, Shelley Bay and Deep Bay are some of the fine North Shore beaches that you might want to visit. On the South Shore some of the beaches have deep natural pools that you can wade out to. While it is a common belief that Bermuda has great surfing, it actually doesn't and the waves only get big on the South Shore when there is a heavy wind blowing from the south.
