Owner description: In the 18th century, smugglers used this bay to unload their goods; today, this bay is surrounded by one of the most beautiful beaches on the island.

I have to say, after all the other beaches in Bermuda, this one was quite unimpressive. Now a local told us that was because we were there during low tide which may be part of it but we didn't bother sticking around. Maybe it's better to see by boat too I don't know. We drove our scooter there intending to swim or snorkel but we took one look and decided that wasn't the best idea. Everything is close though in Bermuda so if you're up for it, go there first and decide for yourself and if you agree with me, head down the road to Somerset Long Bay. Good swimming there if you don't mind the seagrass.

If you are touring Bermuda by boat, Mangrove bay is a nice place to check out. There are lots of turtles that come here to feed on the sea grass. You will see turtles coming up for air. They are quick, so it's difficult to get a photo, but it's a lot of fun.

Granted, i'm extremely partial to Mangrove Bay as for us it is 'home'. After looking at 21 spots to live (back in Oct. 2010), we chose Mangrove Bay because it feels so like you're 'on holiday' compared to the bustle of the rest of Bermuda. The small strip of shops along the sweep of Mangrove Bay are NOT over run with tourists and the 'locals' nod and greet you on the street. Visually, the Bay is one of the most picture perfect on the island (Ely's, on the way out of town on the left being one other), with pastel buildings ringing its perimeter and pretty boats anchored out. It's a docile Bay, unlike the rough South Shore. Wander over to the public pier at the end of Cambridge to fish or catch Baxters fishing charter. Although EXPENSIVE, Bermuda is breathtakingly beautiful ... and in my biased opinion, Mangrove Bay is in the 'top 3' of that beauty.
