People aren't the only tourists here: come April, the bay is a stopping point for whales headed north.

Pleasant stroll up the hill to the fort and around it. Beautiful views as always and the colours just stunning.

This beach is just as good as the others. The sand is white, the water is blue and the sun is hot. So many great beaches in Bermuda.

Private and secluded like being on your own beach. There are bathrooms and forts to explore and shade under the trees if you wish to escape the sun.

If you want to go here you have to watch the tides. There is no beach at high tide. Quiet place to swim, sunbathe,and relax

West Whale Bay Beach is a nice quiet & small beach - most of the time. During holidays it may be a bit more traffic, but you still can have a great time. It's a great place to watch sunsets!

You would think after three years living on Bermuda I would follow my own advice. Yes I checked the tide times this morning and thought I had planned ok,but after a two hour detour to Dockyard for lunch when I eventually arrived, snorkel and flippers...More
