Good points - the view from the top of the hill over the ocean was amazing, all the rocks and huge boulders made for an amazing sunset. We took amazing pictures and the walk to the beach through St. George was so nice. You could see the fort off to the side and the hills were very green. Absolutely beautiful.... More

The Bay is stunning. We enjoyed the walk from the unfinished church to the water, and were rewarded with gorgeous views when we arrived. The old golf course offers good trails between the church, Tobacco Bay, and the fort.

It was recommended we walk from St Georges to Tobacco Bay and this was definitely the best option. The route takes you up past the unfinished Church and is about 20mins. We met a very friendly cat along the way. Even in cloudy weather the water was a stunning colour. We were the only people there and nothing was open... More

Only a 10 minute walk from town and well worth it. The rock formations are intriguing and if you snorkel, there are plenty of fish. Clear and clean water. Lovely.

A view to die for, amazing rock and Coral formations and crystal clear water, unfortunately the restaurant was closed for the season, but I understand it is highly rated. Well worth a visit !!

We were so glad when we discovered this little gem of a bay. The water is calm and protected. It is very shallow for the most part and yet there is amazing snorkelling all around the edges. It was perfect for my two kids who had just learnt to snorkel. There is a great little beach bar pumping out some... More

This would be a great beach for kids and families. It is on the small side, but the water is stunning and the bay is surrounded by awesome coral formations. The water doesn't get much more than waist deep if you stay in the cove, and there is a small cave where you can snorkel if you want. There is... More

This beach is small but it's beautiful. It's more of a cove surrounded by rocks and very well protected from any rough seas. It's good for both non-swimmers because of it's topography and also for snorkelers because of the rocks. There is a beach house on site with food and equipment for rent. If you go town don't believe the... More

Not far from the center of St. George, may be 15-20 min walk, there is no transportation to get to the beach. You walk by the Unfinished Cathedral. The sand is not as beautiful as the sand at Horseshoe bay, but the bay is perfect for snorkeling with kids. There may be some glass on the sand, since someone got... More
