Tobacco Bay Beach
Warwick Long Bay
This beautiful long sandy stretch of beach is another island
favorite. If you're staying at the Elbow
Beach Resort, you have access to free beach chairs, towels, showers
and rest rooms. However, these amenities are not available to the
public but the beach is. Lifeguards are on duty during the
Summer months. The resort also rents paddle boats, kayaks and snorkel
We found out about this little secluded hideaway from a British lady
on our cruise ship. If you're feeling energetic, you can hike into the
cove. Or you can take a taxi, like we did (it was much too hot to walk
there). This gorgeous tucked-away horseshoe-shaped bay located
adjacent to Warwick Long Bay is only 30 feet wide, and its shallow
waters make it an excellent location for swimming and snorkeling. Don't
forget your camera it's a beautiful spot.
Horseshoe Bay Beach
Nmaed for its horseshoe-shaped bay, Horseshoe Bay Beach is one of Bermuda's
most famous and popular beaches. Its white/pink sand cool
to the touch, even in the hottest temperatures feels like talcum
powder beneath your feet. And its beautiful aqua waters are clear and
warm. Wish we were there now!

cove. If the tide is out, walk down to the far end of Horseshoe Bay
Beach and walk around the corner to beautiful rock formations, private
coves and breathtaking views it's WELL worth the exercise.
You might get wet climbing over the rocks to get a good photo, so
bring a disposable camera.
This popular Public Beach is on the other side of the island, close to
the historic town of St. George's. (It used to be the old Club Med.)
Like Horseshoe Bay, it can get very crowded, especially if the cruise
ships are in port. Its facilities include showers, restrooms changing
rooms and a snack bar. Beach rentals are also available.
With its half-mile stretch of sand the longest on the island Warwick
Long Bay is a beach-lover's delight, especially if you crave solitude.
However, there are no facilities, rentals, or lifeguards
on duty restrooms and parking are located at the end of the
This beautiful secluded beach is ideal for morning
yoga, jogging, or taking a long, leisurely walk. Enjoy a romantic
picnic, relax with a good book, and swim to your heart's content.
Natural Arches (pictured bottom right) private beach and its two limestone rock formation arches was one
of the most photographed sights in Bermuda — sadly, was destroyed following
the devasting Hurricane Fabian in September 2003.
