The coral reefs make this bay great for snorkeling, but not for inexperienced swimmers: the waters can get rough.

This beach is not as popular as Horseshoe Bay Beach, but just as pretty if not more so. Often recommended for snorkeling as the boilers and rocks are close to shore. If the wind is from the south or southwest, and moderate the rough water will make snorkeling more difficult and there will be the danger of being washed on... More

Of the beaches we visited while in Bermuda, Church Bay is my favorite. This beach is absolutely beautiful, perfect for snorkeling (probably the best), and very low key. Did not want to leave.

We went snorkeling here twice during our stay and it was great. Lots to see right off the beach. Reefs further out for the more adventurous. There is equipment rental here - chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear and basic snacks. $25 for 2 chairs and an umbrella and you can stay from 9-7. Bring cash for the rentals. Also some nice... More

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!

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