Church Bay Beach, Southampton Parish

4.5
#2 of 14 in Outdoors in Southampton Parish
Wile away the hours in the cerulean waters of Church Bay Beach, one of Bermuda’s most popular snorkeling beaches. Pink sands lapped by clear waters complement the coral reef, which bustles with schools of fish and marine life. Adverse weather can make the water rather choppy, so choose a calm day and head out to explore the underwater depths. If you’re planning to swim, wear swim shoes when you enter the water, as the beach is littered with submerged rocks.

  • One of my favorite beaches in Bermuda. It is never as busy as Horseshoe Bay Beach, and it is a great snorkeling spot. It is a great beach to visit if you plan to visit Gibbs Light House on the same day because it is only a short distance away (walkable).
  • The sand here is fine and soft almost like at Horseshoe Bay Beach. Large rocks at the surface of the sand when wading into the ocean (hurt my feet). Lots of ants in the sand along with another larger black bug that pinch at your skin. Not busy, so it’s nice and private if that’s what you’re looking for.
  • One of the stand out locations to snorkel on the island.
  • beautiful small bay
  • We have to say this is one of the most amazing little beaches to go to. Amazing sand. amazing waters, fish everywhere and so amazing to snorkel and swim. If you get a chance go see this beach and one more thing it is not that busy of a beach. Somedays we were the only people there.
