My boyfriend and I were on a trip in Bermuda and really wanted to do some water sports, however since we visited in April not much was open for the summer season yet (plus it was very windy and the water was rough!). So we thought maybe some snorkelling would be okay as long as we don't swim too far... More

This is my husbands favorite, you can now rent snorkeling gear there. It also has bathroom close by. Stairway was washed away and replaced by another more sturdy one. Parking for scooters, cars and on bus route, very good snorkeling spot. Also a parking lot beside it to sit on benches higher up.

Loved this beach. Not easy to access but so quiet and peaceful. A must do to avoid all the crowds. Plan this one.

We took brought out snorkel and jumped in. Very clear water. All the water in Bermuda is great. Nice beach and lots of sun. For sure this is a must stop. Bring your sun glasses and sun tan oil. You will need them.

I love this spot - the views from the top are amazing. The beach is small but never crowded. Popular with snorkelers. FYI - no amenities or life guards.

From Horseshoe Bay we went by public bus to church bay. There is a short walk down stairs to the beach. There are no change rooms or services here. But there are many fish to see without going out far at all. Our family enjoyed them with goggles only, although a snorkel would've been nice. You can easily get by... More

Happened upon this beach while out walking. Small but stunning. Young man there catching fish. Apparently very good for snorkeling.

Great location for snorkelling, although each time we visited the waves were strong, would recommend taking fins/flippers. Much quieter than Horseshoe Bay as not many tourists know about this location.

But be careful, water can be treacherous . It will take you in, rough waters. But spectacular! We rented scooters to be able to go to a lot of the areas sights.

This spit has great fish and small reefs. The Parrott fish are brilliantly colorful. And there are many other species here. There can be a strong undertow if it is choppy.
