Tobacco Bay with its amazing aqua colored water is a beautiful tiny bay surrounded by rocks. When we visited in November the small beach was mostly empty. We did not snorkel but were told it's the best snorkeling spot on Bermuda. It probably helps that...More

The parking lot is right by the beach. It may be difficult to use a cane in the sand, but it’s very close to parking lot
