We visite several beaches but as we are staying in St. George's we were able to walk to this beach in about 12 minutes an by far it has been my favorite beach because it has a beach bar, calm water an is great for snorkeling.

We've just had a lovely day at Tobacco bay, it's such a beautiful spot for a bit of beach lounging and snorkelling, with interesting fish and reef wildlife right up close to the shore. The guys at the bar made us a great "dark and stormy" too which definitely helped us enjoy the afternoon. I imagine it gets really busy... More

Really enjoyed the time we spent on the beach. It's not summer so we were almost the only people there. The water is crystal clear, a little cold but you adapt quickly. There are rest room facilities and showers, also cold drinks to purchase. I was told it's the perfect place for people with kids, the water is shallow, and... More

This is not the most beautiful beach we visited in Bermuda, but it was definitely one of our favorites. We were staying in St. George for 1 week in October 2016 and we visited here twice. Our first visit was early in the week. It was a very windy day, so snorkeling was not ideal. We opted to rent a... More

In kind of remote area, nice for photos. Would have loved to swim on a warmer day- good add on to a trip to Fort st. Catherine's, but wouldn't make the trip just for the beach.

We visitors during the off season but this place a a treasure trove of crystal clear water and little rock formation coves. Whether you're looking for a private experience or shallow beach snorkel adventure it seems to cover all bases. On the smaller size with a local feel.
