Horseshoe improvements hailed

New improvements to Horseshoe Bay have been hailed a success by Cole Simons, the Minister of the Environment.

Umbrellas, lounge chairs and extra garbage and recycling bins have been installed at the popular South Shore beach, while better maintained restrooms and a new concession have added to the Horseshoe experience.

The additions are part of Bermuda's new Beach Vision project designed to enhance Horseshoe, John Smith's Bay, Clearwater, Horseshoe Bay, Shelly Bay and Tobacco Bay.

“I went to see for myself how locals and visitors were enjoying these improvements to one of our most treasured attractions,” Mr Simons said.

“I found that everyone is working together and taking pride in what we provide to the public. In just a few months, I am proud to say we have accomplished quite a bit. We have more work to do to ensure the best possible experience for beachgoers, but feedback so far has been positive.”

The improvements to Horseshoe Bay were achieved through the collaboration of various Government ministries and departments, the Bermuda Tourism Authority, Parks Commission, Sustainable Development, and Keep Bermuda Beautiful.

Further enhancements are planned at Horseshoe Bay in the off-season including restroom renovations, additional landscaping and a review of traffic flow.

Beach Vision was launched in May 2016. Feedback on the project can be sent to: beaches@gov.bm.
