This bay is great for tourists mostly. It has great water activities and great views. Can be great for snorkeling and it is not as busy as Horse Shoe Bay

Amazing beach. Doesn't get crowded, chair/umbrella rentals, and absolutely stunning snorkeling (especially if you are willing to swim out a bit to the two rocks you can see from the beach, only a 5 to 10 minute swim!). Does get a bit rough (waves-wise) once you swim out so probably better for reasonable swimmers rather than young kids. However this... More

Lovely beach, not so busy as Horseshoe, and great for snorkelling. Rentals available. Good swimming here or just floating in the blue water! Bus 7 will take you right there.

Church Bay Beach was the first beach we went to during our time in Bermuda, and the best beach that we had visited. The snorkeling was AMAZING, the best spot in my opinion. The rock formations, coral, and sea life were beautiful. This was a more low key beach, just what we were looking for, less than 40 people while... More

This is undoubtedly the best beach in Bermuda, however no one seems to know about it. If you want fun waves, pink sand completely clean and no people with stunning views with the rocks and sea this is it. Let all the crowd go to horseshoe bay as this is the place. Simply heavenly.

Great views from the top of the pathway overlooking Church Bay and lots of interesting rock formations along the shore. Supposed to be a great place for snorkeling but water was rough the day we were there and wasn't that great swimming or snorkeling there at that time and we didn't stay long.

Quite near the much more publicized Horseshoe Beach but less populated. There is a reef within swimming distance which is ideal for snorkeling (equipment rental is available right on the beach). Plenty of parking, toilets and right near a bus stop.

Best snorkeling in Bermuda if the water is on the calm side. Have been there many times and it's always amazing.
