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. With our international travel planner, St. George attractions like Tobacco Bay can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The water is beautiful and you can swim with the fishes!! Take a short walk along the "beautiful dead end" trail...the views are magnificent.  more »
  • This beach is great for families to go to, as the water is calm and clean enough to see the bottom. Even in late October, with the sun out, the water is not too cold.  more »
  • It is off the normal path. It is a area you can walk out into and see the bottom. It is an area you can snokel in and see even more.  more »

  • Excellent site for snorkeling
  • 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!
