We snorkeled here and there is a lot of structure and some fire coral, so watch out. We didn't think it was as good as Tobacco Bay Beach though. Not as many fish around. We went way outside the main area as well and it was pretty rocking with waves. If you stay inside the reef area it's calmer and... More

We heard Church Bay Beach was great for snorkeling so we drove our moped there and thankfully we have our own snorkel equipment so we didn't pay money to rent some and then see how terrible the beach was to snorkel. I'm not sure if the beach is always like it was when we were there, but there were massive... More

rough water as it sits on the SW side of island. snorkling was not very good (was told some of the best). small beach with a lot of "sea garbage" on the sand. rough sand, not the sugary soft sand. we stayed 15 min, then taxied back to Horseshoe Bay Beach.

Just got back from a 10 day trip to Bermuda and we loved visiting Church's Bay. A beautiful beach, clean, safe, and a perfect spot for snorkeling. Definitely stop by and spend so time, it is worth the effort. Be sure to pack something to eat and drink and as in most of the beaches in Bermuda, there isn't alot... More

We came here after spending some time at horseshoe beach. Water is much calmer and this is definitely not a tourist trap. You need to walk down several stairs. Scenery is breath taking. You can only buy Italian or frozen ice at the entrance.... Bring something for hydration and nourishment if you are staying for a long time.

I loved this little beach. It is considerably further west than Horseshoe Beach, and as a result, is far less crowded. There are no services here, which is fine with me. As a result, there are far fewer people at this beach.

We spent the day here last week with our kids (ages 12, 14, 16). It was recommended by the taxi driver. There are lots of rocks that the kids loved climbing and exploring. Beach was not at all crowded. Sand was the expected pink coral and water was great! We saw lots of larger fish very close to shore but... More

Lovely location. No services so much less busy. Surf is a little rough so probably not a good place for small kids or frail people. Lovely rocks and water -- but be careful not to get caught as tide comes in if you walk beyond the main beach. I loved CBB.
