We were looking for a non crowded beach and found it. There is shade but we were disappointed there were no umbrellas or chairs available for rental. We had packed a lunch and had drinks but only walked on the beach.

Went there to go snorkeling while the ladies soaked up the sun. It was a little windy and the waves were breaking on the outer reef. We stayed well inside closer to shore on the west end and the water wasn't to cloudy and there...More

My kids and I visited the beach this morning as part of the Keep BERMUDA Beautiful beach clean up. This is a lovely beach, overlooked by the tourist books, which is a plus! If you want some out-of-the-way beach time, visit here.

This is a great beach. Usually not too crowded. Good Snorkeling if (as you are looking at sea) go to your right out and around the first bend. Don't wear flashy jewelry in the water. You may se Baracuda in Bermuda and they are curious...More

This a very nice beach, it was very quiet when we were there, it is not that big a beach maybe 150m long, there is a toilet block just behind the beach with outside taps for either a shower or just to wash the sand...More

Okay so I maybe a little biased. I grew up around the corner from this gem, and spent a large majority of all my summers swimming and beach combing at this beach. It's always pretty clean, they have lifeguards during tourist season ...there is a...More

Went here after visiting Crystal Caves and the Swizzle Inn. It was right on the bus line. A pretty ride along the coast (isn't everything along the coast a pretty ride?). Quiet and very few people on the beach. Found a little spot beneath some...More

Really great smaller beach if you are staying in this area. Pink sand, good snorkeling, lifeguards on duty (in high season) and natural areas of shade at one end. We went many times and always quiet and mostly locals. Real gem.

Small beach frequented by locals. Clear water and calm waves make for a peaceful day at the beach. This beach has no frills... No bathrooms, concession stand, etc so be sure to pack light snacks and water if you plan to spend the day here....More
