Middle Beach

Located in the southwestern part of Warwick Parish, Middle Beach is on the South West coast of Bermuda. You might think about stopping by whether or not you're staying in the immediate vicinity.

How to Access The Beach

The best way to reach Middle Beach is to park in South Shore Park on South Road, and take the trails south until you hit the beach. Alternatively, you could park at the much more popular Horseshoe Cove Beach and walk along the coast to the East until hitting a series of rocks. You'll see the rocks in the distance before you reach them, so you will know when you are there.

Amenities and Ambiance

This beautiful beach has wonderfully warm and soft sand, though it is much more known for the abundance of large rocks that are scattered around the beach and continue into the water. While this can interfere with running, playing, and swimming a bit, it gives Middle Beach a unique exotic feel you will not get in many other beaches on Bermuda.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot. Happily, the off-shore waters are of good snorkeling quality, so bring your gear if you're wanting to check out the underwater sites.

Since Middle Beach is found within a relatively urbanized region, you might want consider the time when you plan your visit.
