I'd visited this beach around 20 years ago and it was my favourite beach on the island. A repeat visit was required, especially as it was within St George where we were for the day. The beach remains a beautiful spot and great for snorkelling. There is a new beach cafe/bar now in place so some people may find it... More

A very good beach for families with young children as fairly shallow. Also a good snorkelling area. Too much music.

Visited this beach while on vacation in Bermuda. It wasn't the best beach we saw but it was okay. Not a pink sand beach. They have beach chairs, umbrellas available to rent. There was also live music and a restaurant on the beach. The beach was a little on the dirtier side then any other beach we saw. There was... More

When we arrived we were the only ones there for a while, a little slice of heaven! Loved the small size of the beach, friendly staff and... More

A great little bay with a beach, sheltered water and a beach bar. The vibe was relaxed and fun, with music being played from the bar. Cold water for me (I live in the Caribbean), but very clear, and some good rocks to jump off into the deeper areas. The drinks at the bar were relatively expensive but not too... More

Love this spot. Gorgeous protected beach so great area to snorkel, swim, paddle board, etc. They make a great Dark & Stormy slush drink.

We walked over from town and spend an hour having a cocktail while enjoying the spectacular view - not white sand but beautiful little lagoon. There is a train running with is a good option if it is very hot. Walk further out for stunningly beautiful rock formations - bring swimming shoes so you can explore! love it!

I have read so many good reviews of this beach but what I did not read about is the trash that littered a part of the beach as well as the bottom of the bay. I couldn't believe that a beautiful beach with so much potential can be this dirty. The good: situated in a bay like setting protected by... More

My wife and I biked over to Saint George from Grotto Bay Resort in Hamilton Parrish specifically to visit this beach. It has a very private feel and great area for snorkeling or just laying on the beach. There was a beach bar on site, we ordered just drinks but they had food options there as well. Definitely highly recommended... More
