The soft pink sand and crystal clear water along with restrooms, lifeguards, and concessions makes this a great beach for families to visit. As others have mentioned, it does get crowded, but not nearly as crowded as the beaches we visit in the US mid-atlantic...More

This is as described by others and the pictures show enough as well. It is a beautiful beach with lovely views of the island but it is also horribly crowded. My wife and I were there in the off season and early in the day...More

If you like to walk, stroll along the beach until you disappear away from the masses. Paradise found.

Gorgeous beach. Tons of cruise ship tourists during the day. They all clear out in the mid afternoon so the beach is very enjoyable in the late afternoon. They have beach chairs and umbrellas for rent. They have a snack shop and bar.

Really enjoyed this beach. Umbrella and chair rentals available. Also restrooms and concession stand on site. A must see in Bermuda.

It was busy the hole time and barely any room to sit down. Let alone much less lounge around. But the view was amazing.

This is a beautiful beach, however, it doesn't tend to get a little crowded. Good snack stand and rental chairs, etc. It is connected through paths to other less populated beach, however, the other beaches don't have the amenities.

This beach was way too crowded. If I closed my eyes I could almost imagine the beauty of this legendary beach but with the crowds it was impossible. We left immediately.

I do not recall seeing lockers. However it is a very family friendly safe beach. If you have a waterproof pouch bring it.

Take the bus, Bus 7 it is the cheapest and easiest method. There are taxi drivers that hang out by the dockyard asking you if you want a ride to the bay, but beware they charge much much higher taxi prices. It's about a 35... More

Tobacco Bay was a fun beach. The beach itself is tiny and crowded, but the water is not. Plenty of swimming area for people of all age and skill. There are beach chair rentals.
