Nice little park on the railway trail that has the calmest beach on the island. The park is fun for small kids, the water is perfect for wading out and swimming. Nice place that is off the beaten path. You can take the bus there or walk the railway trail. 3mi from grotto bay or less than 1 from the... More

Shelly Bay Beach is perfect for all ages, and in particular for young children as the waters are shallow and usually very calm and there is a children's playground right next to the beach. Take a snorkel swim out to the point and enjoy all the fish that you will find there or along the shoreline. There are no beach... More

We are Bermudian locals and live near Shelly Bay Beach. It's very shallow and safe for kids, and as the name says, the sand on this beach is full of tiny shells. It's a lovely beach for a family visit. The water is crystal clear! There's a good playground too. When the wind is right, it's a popular bay for... More

very pretty, small, peaceful little beach on the north shore. not many beaches in this area, so good option if you are staying in the area and want a true, sandy beach.

Shelly Bay Beach is great for families with small children. When its low tide, you can wade in the water and walk far. Great for the timid and inexperienced swimmer.

This beach is not the best in Bermuda but very good for small children, too many weeds though. The shoreline is great for lounging with a book.

We rented a house within walking distance to Shelly Bay Beach and visited the beach 4 times during our week stay. It was vacant most days and only couple people seem to use the beach, and they are locals. There are many chickens about and one even pecked at my husband's foot. They are easily shooed away and are only... More
