Beautiful Beach for small children and family. Lifeguard on duty daily. The only down fault you will need to take your own water, snacks etc. no umbrellas or chairs is available. Must be seen to appreciate the beauty.

Among the best swimming beaches in Bermuda, and a favorite local spot. The waters were a bit colder and wavier than the north shore bays but absolutely gorgeous and clean. There are a few rocks/reefs to explore for snorkeling, but if that's your main objective...More

My wife and I was this beach often. It is simply beautiful. You won't regret taking a winter dip. The beach is maintained but offers little shade. Bring you umbrellas.

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.

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.
