The beach is lovely and uncrowded. The reef is very good snorkelling. As many have noted, the Bermuda Chubb fish at the reef swim around you and bite. After experiencing this I found a stick on shore to wave at the Chubb. It very effectively kept them at a distance. BTW, no need for a cab. Just wave down a... More

My husband and I visited the island for our honeymoon. We stayed at the Holiday Inn located on the North Sound, so we did not have beach access there. We bought a cheap Styrofoam cooler from the grocery store, packed sandwiches and drinks, and spent three or four days relaxing on the beach during our trip. There is a free... More

If you want to spend the day on Seven Mile Beach away from the crowds with great parking, this is the perfect beach. There is ample parking on the lot (look for the sign saying "Governor's Beach" and pull in to find a parking spot right on the beach. The beach is part of Seven Mile but away from the... More

Nice beach with large trees providing good shady spots until just after noon. Next to the Westin & its conveniences.

We so far have hit this beach twice. The first time it was early and we had a good parking and not much but a wedding setup there. The snorkeling was great, we seen a five foot nurse shark, queen angel fish, turtles, barracudas, groupers and the jewel damsel that I have never seen before. The second visit was later... More

You are 30 seconds from the car, a 2 minute walk to The Westin (to grab a handmade margarita by their pool bar) and less than 10 seconds from the crystal clear ocean. Snorkeling directly in front of this beach with a 3-4 minute swim out to the small reef offshore. A specific area is also available for swimming without... More

line up with the gate side of the pickett fence and swim out to the white sphere buoy. easy swim and snorkel. Avoid on cruise ship days if possible, but even then it is a large area to enjoy.

Its a nice little stop on a Seven Mile stretch. If your driving you can park your car in the shade and go for a nice walk on the beach. There is only an outhouse for facilities, no showers to rinse off after a dip in the sea.

This beach is right in front of the governor's house and is a deep sand beach that offers a lot of filtered shade to those wanting shade to full sun. There is really good snorkeling close to shore and a really nice reef further out. The reef closer to shore has a lot of little fish and the reef further... More
