Another one of Bermuda's beautiful beaches. The waters are crystal clear and amazing for snorkeling; however, the beach is secluded and a bit far from the bus stop. Better to go to if you have a rental bike. Small in size but very nice

Hard to find but worth the effort. Large car park and field to walk through to reach beach. Quiet with only five people there when we went on a mid morning Saturday. White sand gentle waves, plenty of rocks and lots of interesting fish clearly seen through crystal clear water without need for snorkel. No facilities and no lifeguards.

Whale Bay beach is much smaller then Horseshoe but it is also a nice one to swim. There is an area were you can have a picnic there as well. Not as crowded at some of the other beaches.

A couple turned us on to this beach on our cruise ship at dinner one evening. We had rented a scooter and were determined to find it. The beach was not far from the dockyard via scooter. There is a parking lot and a large grassy area to walk through before reaching the beach. The beach itself is small in... More

Fantastic hidden little beach. No facilities except for one old toilet. Small beach which I was told you can only go on when tide is out. It was out when we went and was definately worth the visit.

The waters were calmer here. Tiny little spot, but great for swimming. The walk down the hill isn't too bad, and the sand is lovely to sit on. We didn't see many fish when we snorkeled, but for swimming, this was great.

Who knew this little place existed? Locals do. That's about it. Perfect for swimming. A tiny beach (when the tide goes out). Lovely!

We stayed within walking distance to Whale Bay Beach while in Bermuda. It is a small beach that is connected to a nice park. It has great swimming and pretty decent snorkeling. One morning, we had the beach to ourselves but shared the water with some big parrot fish and a large puffer. Worth the walk!

I went her to see the sunset and loved it! It's a bit of a walk up a hill but when you catch your breath the view will take it right away :)
