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.

The beach and sand are absolutely stunning... Felt like walking on velvet. You could walk out into the water a good distance and had schools of small fish swimming around. The water color was unreal.

If you are staying at the onsite Elbow Beach Club then you will be very happy. The water can get rough when the wind kicks up, I think Horseshow bay is calmer by virtue of location. still great

This beach is by the Elbow Hotel and is absolutely gorgeous, like all the beaches we saw in Bermuda. No concession or bathrooms. Great waves for jumping!

We stayed at Newstead Belmont Hills and walked to the beach from the hotel. It's beautiful. Not too many people around.

We took bus 7, from the dockyard, out to Elbow Beach. This is a gorgeous, large beach. There were hardly any people here, many had gone to Horseshoe Beach. There is a walk down to the Beach from the bus stop. The beach has no amenities. The sand was soft and this is one of the cleanest beaches we have... More

A must beach to visit if you are in Bermuda. Lovely sand and the sea looks inviting. You can pay for sun chairs and umbrella and there are toilets and showers nearby.

We stayed at coco reef, ate fairly regularly for lunch here, great food, service & location. This is the only beach bar on elbow beach, but well worth a visit, gorgeous home made dressings and coleslaw devine!

Some of the whitest sand and bluest water in the world coming together. Cayman-like except quitter and not as busy. More like Hawaiian island than Caribbean.

For all intents and purposes, the softest and most powdery sand beneath your feet. Beach is clean and huge and has a cute backdrop but mostly good for complete relaxation, not beach party.
