This beach is not the best in Bermuda but very good for small children, too many weeds though. The shoreline is great for lounging with a book.

We rented a house within walking distance to Shelly Bay Beach and visited the beach 4 times during our week stay. It was vacant most days and only couple people seem to use the beach, and they are locals. There are many chickens about and one even pecked at my husband's foot. They are easily shooed away and are only... More

One can't loose going to any of the more than 100 beaches in Bermuda. We found some pieces of glass on this beach so be careful. When the tide is out, one can walk out quite a ways before it get too deep. There is a children's park there also with lovely swings, slides, etc. This is also a nice... More

We had rented a property across the street and were lucky to have this beautiful beach nearby. Loved every minute we could be there!

Very, very good beach. Calm waters all around. Could see the bottom of the ocean floor. Has some amenities there such as a bathroom and bus port is close by. can walk out about fifty feet and still be only chest high in water.

This beach isn't very big, and has no facilities. It does have a nice children's playground. It can be busy on weekend evening. Mostly local people having family bbq's and picnics. The water is calm and shallow. It is good for snorkeling and swimming.

Great beach with little to no waves. Not very crowded. There is a playground for small children. A small parking area but also easily accessible from the bus. Good snorkeling if you have your own gear.

We came here for a few hours. It's a nice beach with a park right next-door. The beach had a lot of seaweed and trash on it. Maybe it was brought in due to the presence of wind. This beach could do with a shower and working public, toilets. We will come back and give it another go.
