Chaplin Bay is a small, quiet beach situated between Stonehole Bay and the more popular Horseshoe Bay. It’s much quieter than its western neighbour and you’re likely to find yourself with little company. It’s the perfect location to relax, unwind and read a book.
The pink sands are partially divided by a coral wall and surrounded by cliffs. Between February and October look out for the white-tailed tropic birds (longtails) swooping in and out of the cliff-side nests.
Chaplin Bay is situated in Southampton Parish, just off South Road. It’s part of South Shore Park, a long coastal park encompassing some of Bermuda’s best beaches. They are linked by a path running through the dunes behind them.
Chaplin Bay has restrooms but no other facilities. Follow the beachside trail west for around ½ mile and you’ll come to Horseshoe Bay, which has showers and beach concessions.
