Pink Sand Beach, Bermuda

So which one do you choose from the 34 fabulous beaches of Bermuda? All of them are so unique and beautiful in their own rights! Over the last many years, We have spent long hours at each one of those wonderful Bermuda beaches.  
And Bermuda's sand looks pink. Is that true? Yes! So why do the Bermuda beaches have pink sand? Red tiny organisms grow under coral reefs and die on the ocean floor. These along with bits of corals and shells get washed up to the shore, get mixed with sands and create a pink hue. And that makes the Bermuda sand look pink in color, well almost ;-) 
Some of the Bermuda beaches have long expanses, while some are just tiny coves that are separated from one another by rocky cliffs. Some of these beaches are surrounded by coral reefs. The reefs are generally visible above the water surface particularly during low tide. You can also clearly see them at times when you are snorkeling. 
While there are some private beaches owned by hotels, most of the Bermuda beaches are public family beaches. The public beaches in Bermuda are open from dawn to sunset. 
You can not camp on the beaches or stay at night. But in many occasions we could swim even from private beaches although we didn’t reserve rooms in the hotels. If you eat at their restaurants, they allow you to use their private beaches.
