Spent a leisurely afternoon/evening at this glorious beach. Not too far to walk from the parking lot to the pink sand. The water also wasn’t too far away. Nice and shallow for those wanting a quick dip to cool off or stay in longer a...More

Took the number 1 bus to John Smith Beach. It’s a fantastic spot with beautiful views. Take note though... no public toilets or concessions so pack a bite to eat. Overall we spent 3 hours there and it was great! I hope you go too.

So close to the Loren hotel that you could walk it. Was a beautiful view, rocky scenery framing the beach which was great. We stopped on a tour of beaches and this was first. It was amazing, but there were others that were simply breathtaking

Beautiful Beach for small children and family. Lifeguard on duty daily. The only down fault you will need to take your own water, snacks etc. no umbrellas or chairs is available. Must be seen to appreciate the beauty.

Among the best swimming beaches in Bermuda, and a favorite local spot. The waters were a bit colder and wavier than the north shore bays but absolutely gorgeous and clean. There are a few rocks/reefs to explore for snorkeling, but if that's your main objective...More
