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!

Loved the beautiful water, white sand and waves crashing. You will be in paradise. Simply stunning and pristine. Go early in the day

beautiful beach. were recommended to go there as it was good for snorkelling and fairly safe. the day we were there the surf was too strong for me to go in although my daughter went in and saw some lovely fish. sitting on the beach you could see the fish at the base of the wave as the wave broke...

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... More

Good spot to snorkel, however the beach area is very small and got crowded. Don't be afraid to swim out to the reef, it takes a few minutes but it is well worth it.

Beautiful little beach with great snorkelling close to the shore.... We saw lots of parrot fish and Sargent majors whilst we were there! The beach wasn't that busy either so you had plenty of space to stretch out! Best snorkelling place we have found so far!

This is the favourite for snorkeling according to the locals. We visited on an unusually windy, rough day so it wasn't so good. However if you choose a calm day I think it would be awesome.
