Bermuda is a series of islands and is blessed with many sandy
beaches. The following is a sampling of some of them.
Secluded amongst towering rock faces is Church Bay at the
extreme western end of the Southampton/Warwick row of beaches.
Probably the most popular beach is Horseshoe Bay. The beach
has facilities including changing rooms and food services. People

formations creating more intimate beaches.
The next beach to the east is Chaplin Bay.
