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.

Elbow Beach is on the most perfect beach in Bermuda. The accommodations are clean well kept and overlook the sea. Unfortunately breakfast is not included in the price and is very costly. We went to a local grocery store to bring in our own breakfast...More

The beach was gorgeous with white sand. The beach was not crowded and no vendors in site to bother you! Nice change from Mexico.

Good waves but not wild. A great place to build sand castles. No natural sun protection, but expansive views like the postcards of Bermuda. Far less crowded than Horseshoe Beach.

Excellent beach....hardly any people. Beach service could have been a little swifter. Crystal clear water, fine white sand, sun loungers on the beach and no crowds. What else do you want? A week of catching up on swimming and reading with cocktails.

Picturesque beach. Not very crowded. Lovely water. Saltier than the Jersey shore but less so than the Mediterranean. Spent a couple of relaxing afternoons here. Water was a little cloudy for snorkeling.

Hi there! I took the bus because the taxi were REALLY expensive. It's metered so the dollars just climb up. The shortest way is to take the ferry from the dockyards and then take the bus. You can get a public transport... More
