We rode our scooter all the way to the other side of the island to see this beach, but were not able to enjoy it. It was full. And by full, I mean there were barely any space available to even walk around. The beach is nicely separated by reefs from the ocean, so the water is very calm. That... More

The limestone rock formations caught our vision as we walked towards the small and secluded bay which we had all to ourselves since their were no cruise ships landing. We had some lovely view of fish and corals as we swam towards the right side in between the rocks. There is a drop in the ocean floor and whop the... More

My husband and I love the snorkeling at Tobacco Bay and it is an amazing place when it isn't too crowded. Even when it is crowded, you can get away from the crowds in the water. We have ordered food a few times from the restaurant there and it was really good and priced well, especially for Bermuda. We also... More

We rode the bus over here while in Bermuda on a cruise. It really was not crowded at all...I think many people go immediately to Horseshoe Bay and bypass any other beaches. It is located at the northern most tip of Bermuda, so the drive from the cruise port is a little longer but worth it! The snorkeling is fantastic... More

This was an amazing choice for us, there was 5 of us, we trotted off the train and down a bit to the absolutly amazing beach. the water was so clear and warm. We rented these pallet chairs (which i am having my hubby make me one) under this covered area, not sure why we all needed a chair because... More

What a different experience our second time when we had the place pretty much to ourselves. I'd suggest getting there early if the cruise ships are in. Beautiful spot to snorkel and enjoy a drink or something to eat under an umbrella on the deck. Snorkel equipment, zayaks, chairs, umbrellas for rent - or just spread a towel out on... More

My boyfriend and I were visiting Bermuda via scooter when we decided to take a ride to this famous Tobacco bay. BIG MISTAKE! It was a tiny over crowded cove with beach chairs. There was what I call HORRIBLE militant reggae music BLASTING from the on site restaurant. I asked one of the attendants where I could find peace and... More

The beach itself is ok by Bermuda standards but the snorkeling is outstanding! We saw about a dozen different kinds of fish, even squids were coming by us in the sunlight. The bay is very calm and warm. Snorkeling makes me panic a little bit but it was easy for me to settle in here. Visibility in the water was... More

Came in on a cruise ship and wanted to travel to a local beach... Tobacco Bay was recommended. We took the local bus from Dockyard to Hamilton to St. George and would have walked the .8 Kilometer, but took a $10 cab cause it was hot!!! Drinks were very expensive -$18 for a beer and rum swizzle. The beach was... More
