I can't understand anyone not just loving this place. Beautiful and lively. We did a short time in the water snorkeling. The reefs were beautiful. The hamburgers were good, the music was fun and my wife was sexy gorgeous.

The best past of the beach is it's remoteness. Cruise ships dock on the other side of Bermuda so you need wheels to get here. After renting our scooters at Elbow Beach, we headed straight here for a swim, some snorkeling and a cool drink...More
