“Great Snorkeling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

It's a small, pretty, and public beach which can be crowded but the bay is plenty big and full of amazing coral outcrops that are some of the best I've ever snorkeled and the fish diversity is excellent. The outter reefs keep the waves calm and the snorkeling easy. The water was chilly for June due to its northern latitude, as compared to the Caribbean.

“Awesome beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This beach is secludid and beautiful. We took the bus to most places and they aren't marked so you have to ask where to get off. But it was amazing.

“Nice Picnic Area - but disgusting washrooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This is beautiful area with picnic tables looking out over a beautiful beach. We enjoyed exploring the rock pools and others were snorkelling. The reef is close to shore at this point so it is a great area for snorkelling. The washrooms were disgusting - definitely something that is a problem in Bermuda in general!

“Very cool place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We were there in January so we did not go swimming or snorkeling but the was is so clear that we could see and take pictures of the parrot fish from the rocks. Definitely worth the effort!

“Great Snorkelling Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Beach is not cleaned like some others...so there is a little trash and seaweed on the beach....but the snorkeling right off the beach is very good. Well worth the visit.
