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.

This is a beautiful stretch of pink-tinged sand about 10 minutes out of Hamilton. The water is aqua blue and so clear and the sand is powder soft. There are a couple of hotels with chairs and umbrellas for guests, but for the public it's basically BYO and whilst you can wander up to Mickey's Bar at Elbow Beach or... More

This beach is absolutely breathe taking. There are no rocks in the sand or shells. Sand is so smooth and the water so blue. The waves are perfect size for the young children. There are reefs everywhere. No jellyfish or seaweed. All around Perfect.

Was a very nice white sand beach. Not very busy in March but very good for relaxing and swimming. Sand is very fine and the beach / water is pristine.

Highly recommend this beach for all-- even in the off season. Great for walks, hanging out, enjoying the scenery, playing in the water.

I’m not sure how it measures in length, but Elbow Beach looks like the longest stretch of beach on the island. The sand is soft and clean. There are less jutting rocks than you will see around Horseshoe Bay. One of Bermuda’s finest beaches.

In the past, Elbow has been listed as one of the top 10 beaches in the world. It has both public access and private access from the Elbow Beach Hotel. Elbow Beach has that soft, fine pink sand, like nowhere else, and the water is clean and clear, the colour of sapphire gin. On a nice day it is one... More

There is no bad beach in Bermuda to be honest. The beach is a long stretch between private and public. You enter the public part down a set of staircase and voila, it opens up to sand and blue water. I went in early spring so it was too cold to frolic in the water. I did however lay down... More

Very pretty beach that is centrally located. Crystal clear waters are great for swimming. The beach is great for walking and running.

ive seen nicer beaches, but this one certainly is pretty. Like everywhere else in Bemuda the sand is beautiful, but not a must see.

Beautiful, wide stretch of powder sand and crystal clear, turquoise blue waters. From what I saw there is at least 1 public access road, with very little, or no parking.Most access is from hotels. There is a limit to the walkable beach as cliff side comes into the water.
