Tobacco Beach is a small but beautiful beach. The workers were kind enough to walk to their house and get our friend some antacid. THANK YOU FOR YOUR KINDNESS! We went for a looong walk to glass beach and that was a disappointment. Save your time and have another drink at Tobacco Bay. :)

We had a great day at Tobacco Bay. We were staying nearby in Hamilton parish and wanted to go snorkeling without traveling all the way 45 min-hour to Southhampton. Our hotel recommended Tobacco Bay and we had a great time. We rented beach chairs and an umbrella. Water was warm and clear!

Nice but pretty shallow. Great for children, but if you are a good swimmer you'd better go to the next beach - near the fort.

A lot of loud young college kids and prices you wouldn't believe for a simple chair rental. For the record - I am only 28 and even I found it distasteful with horrible snorkelling.

We came to Tobacco bay on short notice to see the sunset and were lucky enough to catch a beautiful such. The bar was already closed when we got there but there were loungers on the beach and the view was amazing.
