Bailey's Bay features a small beach directly off of North Shore Road. The area is fairly small and visitors are limited to locals. Shallow water makes for a decent swimming location and the area is guarded by private villas and the offshore Bay Island.

Located toward the western outskirts of Henrys Hill, 5.3 miles northeast of Hamilton, Bailey's Bay is on the North East coast of Bermuda. You should consider stopping by regardless of whether you are staying particularly close by. Need a place to stretch out and relax without all the fuss? To many, the best beach is one that is conveniently located, but allows for a certain degree of privacy; that's why Bailey's Bay is an ideal choice for many travelers.

How to Access The Beach

The beach is accessible directly off of North Shore Road. Drivers will have to be resourceful to find parking, as the area is largely comprised of local housing.

Amenities and Ambiance

The area is quite small, providing a thin stretch of tan sand. The road stretches along the right side of the island, while the left side contains a hill with trees and rocks. The water itself is calm and clear, making for decent swimming.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.

Bear in mind that Bailey's Bay is in an area which is visited by quite a number of tourists, so factor that into your plans.
