We started the day by touring the adjacent fort. Next was Achilles Bay. It is a beautiful spot! To our disappointment there was an ocean storm and high winds. The wind was blowing right at the beach creating heavy surf. Having kids with us that wanted to snorkel, we opted to walk next door to Tobacco Bay Beach. It was... More

We stumbled upon this beach when visiting the Fort. If you are atop hill at the fort looking down you'll see 2 beaches. The beach on the right while looks more open (and I think has rentals and a cute little shack to change in (literally a curtain) which we used but opted for this beach because it looked way... More

Achilles Bay Beach is very small, it is mainly for the guests staying at St. George Club. The good thing is that it is one minute walking distance from St. Catherine's Beach which is bigger and very nice, also three minutes walking distance to Tobacco Beach. So if you are visiting St. George, it worth to see all three.

A lovely little cove with sun loungers and umbrellas. A tiny little bar area which serves soft drinks but think you can get other drinks brought down from the main restaurant area. good swimming area expecially for kids. a lovely view to watch the cruise ships leave as they come so close you feel as if you could touch them.

Achilles Bay is between Tobacco Bay and Fort St. Catherine, so if you have a day to spend in St. George, you can easily see two or even all three of these attractions. It's a nice spot that isn't as dramatic as Tobacco Bay, but is more secluded and potentially less crowded. There are no facilities here, so you might... More

This is a small beach accessed by a flight of stairs next to Fort St. Catherine, but not worth staying as there were lots of newly broken shards of glass on the beach. There are some loungers there but not sure if they needed to be rented.

After visiting Fort St. Catherine and taking lunch at the little restaurant near the Fort (Blackbeard's Hideout...which was casual and had tasty lunch food), we walked the quick path down to Achiiles Bay Beach. I had heard that Tobacco Bay next door was fantastic....But I like to go where perhaps less people have tread. My teen daughter and I had... More

Achilles Bay is a relatively small public beach located near Fort St. Catherines just outside of St. Georges. What it lacks in size, it totally makes up for in beauty. The lovely azure water is inviting, relatively calm "surf", and is an excellent venue for taking a soothing dip on that hot Bermuda day. Best for swimming, not sunbathing, as... More
