“Great snorkeling calm area for not so confident swimmers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The only nice thing about staying 1st in st George's was walking to tobacco bay Sunday morning. We had the place to ourselves until about 10 when they started opening up the shop there. It was lovely and calm. Lots of fish just by sticking your head in the water...more by the coral. It's not very deep so kids are very safe ...

“Good Snorkeling Site.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The protected cove makes a great place for snorkeling without being beat to death by the waves and current. Lots of fish to see. Walking distance from St Georges or someone may just stop and offer you a ride. The concessions here are weak. Overpriced for what you get and the crew is not really interested in taking care of you but flirting with each other. A great place to hang out for a few hours or spend the day. Sunsets here are magnificent.

“Dirty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

See my report on the Bay. Great fish, dreadful beach I am afraid. Concessions selling food and drinks like the one here should be made to clear up the crap.

“You wouldn't believe the amount of fish there!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

OK I took a couple of slices of bread with me when I snorkled, but boy oh boy, I have never seen so many fish. Believe me I have been to a great many places around the world. If I had a net I could have caught enough to feed the hotel. However, there is only one small scrappy cafe, chairs are the usual high price and they do not bother to clear litter from the beach so be prepared to find plastic bottles and other trash.

“Tobacco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Great place to chill and enjoy the lovely Bermuda weather...never too crowded, but a bit difficult to access by car
