Travelers talk about
“pink sand”(36 reviews)
“horseshoe bay”(31 reviews)
“public access”(15 reviews)
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.

There is a public access to the impressive beach but much of the beach is taken up by the private facilities of a large resort hotel. Whilst the signs clearly indicate it is private, visitors are allowed to use that part of the beach and...More

This is a nice sandy beach with public access down a narrow road between 2 resorts. We ate at one of the hotel restaurants and used their washrooms. The sand at the end of Elbow Resort has totally eroded away so the beach is much...More

We have been very fortunate to visit both Elbow beach club and Coral beach club as guests, the beaches are pristine and the water blue beyond belief. We have also used the public beach between the two beach clubs which requires you to bring your...More

Beach is ultra clean, not crowded and water not to rough. I would use this beach for swimming and wind sports as it gets a bit breezy at times.

Close by the beach we were centered at; short walk. It was recommended by friends who spend a fair amount of time in Bermuda, so we went after the cruise ship traffic and tourists had departed in the later afternoon. This is a scenic and...More

Elbow Beach is definitely one of the most beautiful pink sand beaches on Bermuda. Unlike some of the other beaches, this one is not still; it has mild Atlantic Ocean waves that are fun for older kids, who like to boogie board. Also, the reefs...More

No. There is nothing here. You have to sit on your own towel if you thought to bring one. Very remote. Not even enough bush cover to change alongside the beautiful landscape. Too bad they haven’t thought of it yet.

Elbow beach to ferry is approx. 15 min drive or 90 min walk. Ferry to Hamilton is another 15 min trip. Hamilton to Elbow beach walking is approx. 3 hours. Take ferry and cab. Enjoy!

Can you rent chairs and umbrellas at elbow beach? (8 Replies)
I'm staying in a B&B within walking distance of Elbow Beach and have been reading the reviews on the listing for it here on TA. Some visitors say they rented umbrellas/chairs while others complained about how there were none available. Which is the case? Can you rent from a nearby resort or something? If so, are they pricey? Considering schlepping my own umbrella if that's the case. Any info much appreciated. Thanks.

Taxi Fares 9/2016 (12 Replies)
Hello, I read on the Paget Forum taxi from BDA to Elbow Beach is approx $40. 1- What would the average fare be from Elbow Beach to Hamilton, lets say for example, Flanagan's Pub? 2- Also, is it proper to ask before departing what the fare will cost? 3- Payment in U.S. dollars OK? 4- We've been to islands where the taxi driver will give you his/her cell phone # to call if you need a ride. This is especially true if you tip well. This customary in Bermuda? THANKS
