Three hotels line this beach, making it popular with tourists; you might want to avoid this place if you're not into the Spring Break college kid party scene, which tends to crowd the beach during the Easter season.

Unlike other south shore beaches like Horseshoe Bay Beach, Warwick, Jacob's Cove, or Church Bay, Elbow beach is just a straight sandy beach with a few resorts. There is free parking, nice sand, and some close reefs to snorkel in with average scenery, but you...More

I spent 2 wonderful days hanging out at this beach. It was peaceful and not very crowded. Loved having lounge chair, umbrella, and towel. Nice gentle surf. I can't wait to return.

Awesome beach. When you go down to the beach from the resort area, go right and walk about 200 feet to rent chairs and umbrella at 50% off. You can still access the facilities. So much peaceful than Horseshoe Bay.

Elbow is simply beautiful. Peaceful, easy to get to, and pretty. If you get hungry you can pop over to Mickey's and have lunch.
