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.

Very pretty beach that is centrally located. Crystal clear waters are great for swimming. The beach is great for walking and running.

ive seen nicer beaches, but this one certainly is pretty. Like everywhere else in Bemuda the sand is beautiful, but not a must see.

Beautiful, wide stretch of powder sand and crystal clear, turquoise blue waters. From what I saw there is at least 1 public access road, with very little, or no parking.Most access is from hotels. There is a limit to the walkable beach as cliff side comes into the water.

Had lovely morning here on a mild December day. The sand has a beautiful pink tinge and the water was turquoise.

This is a beautiful quiet beach with fine sand and good for swimming. The only drawback is there are no facilities , so plan accordingly! There is Mickey D's on the beach for lunch and dinner ....a little expensive , but you can use there change rooms and toilets. If you don't want a crowd this is definitly the spot!!

We traveled to the beach from Front street in Hamilton via bus. Given that it was a holiday we expected to encounter delays and were pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of the schedules and how friendly the drivers and clerks treated us. It went a long way when met with an overcast day to have easy access to clean beaches... More

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!
