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.

This is a beautiful and relatively uncrowned beach. The waves are good, not big enough to ride but still fun. If you don't rent chairs and umbrellas you save a lot of money. I had to rent two chairs and an umbrella, even though I...More

I spent 2 wonderful days hanging out at this beach. It was peaceful and not very crowded. Loved having lounge chair, umbrella, and towel. Nice gentle surf. I can't wait to return.

Nice beach , big waves. Not too crowded. Perfect for a layback kinda day. Drink Service available on beach but no water activities.

We just loved going to Elbow every day, great for family and friends, safe and clean! No one will bother you and you can enjoy the whole day! Bring your food and drinks!

Awesome beach. When you go down to the beach from the resort area, go right and walk about 200 feet to rent chairs and umbrella at 50% off. You can still access the facilities. So much peaceful than Horseshoe Bay.

This is one of the premiere beaches on the island. It is a nice long stretch of pink sand with a small reef and a beautiful spot. If you stay at Elbow beach, Coco Reef or Newstead, you have complimentary umbrellas and lounge chairs. The...More

Elbow is simply beautiful. Peaceful, easy to get to, and pretty. If you get hungry you can pop over to Mickey's and have lunch.

This is a beautiful south shore beach with soft pink sand and turquoise water. Part of the beach is public (although there is little shade). You can pay for loungers and an umbrella in the private part owned by the Elbow Beach Resort. The crowds...More

We went here our first day in Bermuda. The beach is long and average in width. There was a lot of washed up seaweed on the beach and the sand is not pink like everyone says. You can't lay on the beach even on your...More

We knew that part of the beach was private. Although it's not clearly marked, there are two rivaling resorts and they are not nice people. We found ourselves in one of the resort's territory. They jumped right on us. You can't be here! They wouldn't...More

It is open to the public but only certain parts. You can't use the chairs and Umbrellas if you don't stay at the resort unless you pay $100. They made us go down about 300 yards to the public area and there is no shade there... More

I was able to rent chairs and umbrellas and use their beach an afternoon a few weeks ago. But i arranged it in advance. I do not know if you can just show up and rent on the spot. Chairs are for their guests first. So if... More
