Beautiful calm water bay with so many colorful fish to see when snorkeling. We rented a couple of beach chairs (reasonable priced) and had an enjoyable day.

This place is breath taking! My friends and I are from NYC and were on a long weekend girls trip. Tobacco Bay is easily accessible via public transportation, has super friendly staff, great food, and amazing scenery. We are planning our trip back to this gem!

Small beach but very nice! Restaurant is very closed to the shore and water is very calm. Not overcrowded. The scenery is also nice with the Rocks formation and very close to the Fort of St Catherine where you can see the overview of the beach. I love this beach!!!

This is the second beach I went to on my recent cruise to Bermuda. After a 40 minute ride on a ferry from the Royal Navy Dockyard to St Georges Parish. We took a quick cab ride to Tobacco Bay Beach. What a delightful surprise. Though the beach is small the wonderful large lagoon more than makes up for it.... More

We motor scootered from the cruise ship docks to Tobacco Bay during the first week of September. It was a long and scenic trip and I was glad to pull out the snorkel gear and plunge in the water. The bay was well-protected from the turbulent water. Just outside the rocks, I saw such large and colorful fish I could... More

I visited Bermuda with my two girlfriends (NYCers in mid twenties). Tobacco Bay was our first visit on an early Friday afternoon. It has gorgeous views and beautiful waters. I loved that there was good music playing and a food and drink bar. Needless to say, we passed a lot of time here taking pictures and enjoying the Mango Daiquiris!

Water was very calm. Rental equipment was available. There is a cafe, with music playing, for sure you will have a good day chilling and snorkelling. Chairs rental are expensive, $30 for two chairs. We saw quite a lot of fish, but not as much as Church Bay. Depends on what you are looking for...church bay is quiet, no change... More
