Right in the middle of the series of rocky beaches that make up a portion of Bermuda's southern shore, Angle Beach is almost directly in the middle and is also the least rocky. Its large area of sand makes it popular for those who enjoy its remoteness and natural rocky walls that fend off noisy visitors.
Set in Warwick Parish, Angle Beach is on the South West coast of Bermuda. You might want to drop by even if you aren't staying in the immediate vicinity.
The best way to reach Angle Beach is to park at the main parking area of South Shore Park, and to take the Angle Beach trail south until you reach the beach. Additionally, since the beaches in the area are all mostly connected, you could simply arrive first at a different beach and walk along the coast to Angle Beach.
While Angle Beach is the least rocky of the series of rocky beaches, it still has more large rocks than most beaches on Bermuda. Where rocks are absent, you will be able to spread out on the sand and take in the warm sun. Alternatively, the clear cool water makes for a refreshing dip, especially after the walk required in order to reach Angle Beach.
Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.
Since Angle Beach can be located in an area commonly frequented by travelers, many try to show up early.
