Three hotels line this beach, making it popular with tourists; you might want to avoid this place if you're not into the Spring Break college kid party scene, which tends to crowd the beach during the Easter season.

Most people rave about horseshoe bay or tobacco bay. Elbow beach is my favorite beach I've ever been too. It has the softest sand in the world. Quieter than the other beaches and just beautiful. Must see!

Elbow Beach is our favorite beach in Bermuda. We go to it every time we go to Bermuda. Snorkeling is decent and there chair rentals by the Elbow Beach Resort.
