Lovely little beach quite near where stayed. We never swam here, though. A lot of trash on the beach and in the water - I mean boards and signposts as well as the small bits of plastic you see everywhere in Bermuda. It could be an aberration but it turned us off on this beach. I understand that the various... More

The variety of fish was amazing. All kinds of sizes and colours, together with colourful reefs which are close to the shore. The sea was calm, but can sometimes get choppy here if it's windy. Very small beach, could do with a clean up of excessive seaweed washed up during the recent hurricane.

This beach was gorgeous with the bright blue water and soft sand. You climb down some wooden stairs that give you a stunning view of the ocean and beach. My husband and I had the whole beach to ourselves!

Church Bay was one of our favorite spots on out last trip to Bermuda. Bring dog milk bones and small cat treats and the fish will literally eat out of your hands! Within a few minutes beautiful colorful fish were swarming my husband! We couldn't believe how cool this was! MUST DO!

Lovely little beach, never overcrowded. Parrot fish actually come right up the beach. Parasols available for rent. Not much to add really, as with all beached on this island...superb.

This is in my view the best on shore snorkelling beach in Bermuda. Fish are large, colourful and numerous and come right up to the beach. A little further out are large, complex reef formations that - unlike the ones close in - have not been damaged by swimmers. Check the wind direction before you go. the prevailing S/SW winds...
