This is a beautiful beach, but we went for the snorkeling. Not too far out you will notice rocks sticking out of the water. On the beach side of the rocks there are beautiful coral reefs. This was the best place that we found for snorkeling.

I still prefer the Horseshoe, but Church Bay is very nice as well. Very clean and well cared for. Close to other wonderful areas of interest in Bermuda.

Not marked as a beach on the tourist map perhaps because it is very small at high tide. It was fabulous, so quiet, so clean with brilliant clear warm water. Don't go if you are looking for the tourist trappings as there are none -but well worth a visit.

if you snorkel this is the place to go to do just that. It has natural reefs to snorkel to and see the most amazing fish. It's recommended by the locals and It's only 25 minutes away from the cruise ship port .

My wife and I snorkeled Church Bay Beach in early September. The water all over the Island was very calm. There is a reef that is just off the beach that has a lot of sea life. The reef is heavily incrusted with brain corals and smaller hydrazoan (?) corals and there were lots of fish. The marine life I... More

This was a beautiful very quiet beach. I cannot speak about how the snorkeling rated compared to other locations because this was the only place I was able to snorkel but it was great. There were very few people and the beach and the water are glorious. The approach to the beach is a fairly steep set of stairs. There... More

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
