Beaches of Bermuda's insider take:

The pink-sand beaches of this island are unlike any others in the Caribbean. Most people think the color comes from broken shells and bits of coral, but it's actually the ground-up skeletons of tiny, plankton-like sea creatures called forams that lend the sand its rosy hue. Horseshoe Bay Beach on the south shore in Southampton Parish is the most famous; a wide arc of pink sand, it also tends to be the most crowded, partly because it has facilities such as changing rooms and a café. More secluded is Jobson's Cove in Warwick Parish, adjacent to the half-mile Warwick Long Bay Beach, an almost secret hideaway perfect for snorkeling. John Smith's Bay in Smith's Parish is usually frequented only by locals but it's such a long beach that it never feels crowded.
