Beach near Golf

My husband is planning to play at Port Royal, and I would like to go to a nearby beach while he is playing golf. Is there a public beach with chair rental, restrooms, etc. nearby?

The closest beach to the Port Royal Golf Course, that will offer chaise lounge and beach umbrella rentals and have full bathroom and changing room facilities, beach bar and basic 'beach food'-- https://rumbumbeachbar.com/ --will be approx. 3¾ miles to the east (to your left as you face the ocean) at HORSESHOE BAY BEACH-- https://tinyurl.com/ybbfrddd .... https://tinyurl.com/ydbkzmpq .... https://tinyurl.com/y85jrbtw

NO...Pompano Beach Club (located immediately adjacent to the Port Royal Golf Course) does NOT offer a '..day pass..' for non-hotel guests...nor does The Reefs Hotel & Club, Hamilton Princess Beach Club nor Fairmont Southampton Hotel.

If you plan for your husband to join you at the beach after his round of golf at PRGC...he can take any #7--Dockyard-Via South Shore Beaches-Hamilton public bus, from the regular bus stop, out at the Middle Road entrance drive into the golf course, to the regular bus stop on the South Road for Horseshoe Bay Beach (a 12-15 minute bus ride)...or...a taxi directly to Horseshoe Bay Beach (approx. 10 mins...fare approx.$20-$22). There's really only one entrance to Horseshoe Bay beach...so if he starts walking east (to his left as he faces the ocean) along the pink crescent of the beach...you'll spot each other easily enough....he'll probably be the only man at the beach wearing golf spikes...so that may help.

Hello Heather K,

In addition to the great suggestion of our popular Horseshoe Bay Beach, another beach which is right around the corner from the Port Royal Golf Course is the West Whale Bay Beach. Although this beach does not have concessions or rentals, it is considered one of the hidden gems on the island, tucked away for a calm and serene experience. Here is some more information about this beach gotobermuda.com/article/west-whale-bay-beach… and our Handy Reference map so that you can navigate the distance between here and the Port Royal Golf Course gotobermuda.com/sites/…bermuda-map-web.pdf If you are willing to branch our a travel a little further here is a list of some more of our Bermuda beaches for you to browse
