Tobacco Bay, St. George

4.1
Head down to an active and historic stretch of Bermuda's coast at Tobacco Bay. Rental shacks supply gear for a variety of water sports and activities, including paddleboarding, snorkeling, and kayaking. Cool off in the relaxing onsite restaurant and cafe, serving up locally caught fish and cold beer. Although now exclusively a place of recreation and relaxation, this spot has also had a role in historical events: a group of Bermudians sympathetic to the American independence movement stole gunpowder from the British in St. George's and loaded it onto ships at the bay.

  • Not spectacular and not open to the public unless it's tourist season. I mainly want to give a lower rating so google stops recommending it as something amazing when it's not.
  • Amazing beach, small but quiet with a restaraunt close by, shallow and calm water very kid friendly but not easy to access by foot
  • Ideal for shallow beach snorkelling!
  • Good beach to snorkle and there is a bar!
  • Now from that sign attached, looks like chairs are 8... They Didn't honour it even after another said it does look like 8. They said it was supposed to be &. The staff was quite rude about it and changed it after we showed the picture.... Sure looked like 8 if you had to change it. $20 to use a lounge chair.. each... WTH? A rubber chair.. Very little room to put a towel down, forcing to use them if busy. Water looked nice though
