Happy Tuesday all!
After I returned home from my cruise in 2015, I promised if went back to Bermuda I was going to visit Tobacco Bay. Two years later I kept that promise to myself. Tobacco Bay is located in St Georges parish a 40 minute ferry ride from the Royal Dockyard where our ship (Anthem of the Seas) was docked. The ferry ride was $5 each way. Once you get to St. Georges, you have the option to either walk to Tobacco Bay (20 mins) or catch a taxi for $3 one way (my BFF wasn’t about the walking life that day, so we took a taxi). The ride was maybe 10 minutes from the ferry dock to the beach. For me, Tobacco Bay lived up to it’s reputation of having tranquil, clear waters. It’s a small, intimate beach that wasn’t overrun by tourists (such as ourselves!). At the beach there was a restaurant on site that served food and drinks (my BFF loved her Rum Swizzle, the national drink of Bermuda). You can rent beach chairs with with or without canopies ($20), snorkel equipment and beach floaters. The beach also has free wifi for those who are attached to their phones! (LOL) The coast line was very rocky but once you get past it, the sand becomes soft and rock free beneath your feet. The best thing about Tobacco Bay is the shallow, calm water. I went way out and the water never went above my waist (I’m 5’7). I spent most of my time at Tobacco Bay floating in the blue serene waters and getting my tan on. Because the beach is surrounded by volcanic rock, there are many shallow pools of water around to explore. Just bring good water shoes because the rocks under the water looked pretty intimidating. Unfortunately for me, I left my water shoes home so I couldn’t explore like I wanted to. Trust me on my next visit to Bermuda, I will make sure I have them for my return trip to Tobacco Bay!
Have a wonderful day!
