Beach
“Bermudas biggest beach but gets very busy in the summer set out in a big park on South Shore. Horseshoe has a resturant and bar concession and rentals etc. You can walk easterly along the trails to access many other hidden beaches even more beautiful and less crowded. Spend the day.”

Point of Interest
“The nature reserve is named after Sharon Vesey - A Bermudian lady who donated this 8-acre land area in 2009 to a joint initiative of Bermuda National Trust and the Bermuda Audubon Society in order to save this land from commercial development. As you enter the main trail of the reserve, it slopes down and then an offshoot trail veers right towards the western end of Evans Pond. You can find many different species of herons and egrets roosting at the pond area and numerous wood warblers feeding in the mangroves. There is an wooden boardwalk accessible from the main trail which leads to the deep quarries. There is also an observation platform and you get sweeping view of Little Sound from here. ”

Park
“A short walk away from Langata Lower is Southshore Park. It is a nature reserve stretching across Southampton and Warwick Parishes. It has been designated as a national park since 1990. It starts at the eastern end of Warwick Long Bay and the western end of Horseshoe Bay Beach. The entire stretch is about 1.25 miles.    The parkland has sandy walking trails along limestone cliffs and dunes many are just above the beach level. There are large spans of grassy areas as well on the way that are great for picnics. Many locals use the pathways for their daily fitness, be it a run or a walk. ”
