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.

Love this beach

Highly recommend this beach for all-- even in the off season. Great for walks, hanging out, enjoying the scenery, playing in the water.

I’m not sure how it measures in length, but Elbow Beach looks like the longest stretch of beach on the island. The sand is soft and clean. There are less jutting rocks than you will see around Horseshoe Bay. One of Bermuda’s finest beaches.

In the past, Elbow has been listed as one of the top 10 beaches in the world. It has both public access and private access from the Elbow Beach Hotel. Elbow Beach has that soft, fine pink sand, like nowhere else, and the water is clean and clear, the colour of sapphire gin. On a nice day it is one... More

There is no bad beach in Bermuda to be honest. The beach is a long stretch between private and public. You enter the public part down a set of staircase and voila, it opens up to sand and blue water. I went in early spring so it was too cold to frolic in the water. I did however lay down... More

Very pretty beach that is centrally located. Crystal clear waters are great for swimming. The beach is great for walking and running.

ive seen nicer beaches, but this one certainly is pretty. Like everywhere else in Bemuda the sand is beautiful, but not a must see.

Beautiful, wide stretch of powder sand and crystal clear, turquoise blue waters. From what I saw there is at least 1 public access road, with very little, or no parking.Most access is from hotels. There is a limit to the walkable beach as cliff side comes into the water.

Had lovely morning here on a mild December day. The sand has a beautiful pink tinge and the water was turquoise.

This is a beautiful quiet beach with fine sand and good for swimming. The only drawback is there are no facilities , so plan accordingly! There is Mickey D's on the beach for lunch and dinner ....a little expensive , but you can use there change rooms and toilets. If you don't want a crowd this is definitly the spot!!
