Small, less well know beach. Secluded. Steep climb down to the small alcove. Beautiful scenery. Best to moped here. Pack a lunch or snack!

I really liked this beach because it wasn't busy with tons of people and it had a super big sand bar that goes to Pompano. Walk north of the main beach and you will see what I'm saying. It was fun to swim by ourselves with the sandy bottom. The main area would be good for kids or if you... More

West Whale Bay Beach is small but packed with good swimming and a sunset to die for. This is a favorite spot for locals, which makes for great conversations.

This beach is not a common tourist spot and is usually pretty empty. It has a large park/open grassy area attached to it that is great for kids to run around. You walk down a short, easy path to get to the beach which is secluded and just beautiful. If you do go, MAKE SURE to check the tides since... More

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.
