Warwick Long Bay beach offers visitors a beautiful half-mile stretch of soft, pink sand and calm waters. Surrounded by dramatic cliffs and shrubs -- ideal for privacy -- the area's backdrop is as beautiful as the clear sea itself. Accessibility from South Road makes the beach an excellent choice for all ages.

Set in Warwick Parish, Warwick Long Bay is on the South West coast of Bermuda. You should consider stopping by whether or not you're staying very close. Active and social travelers will probably enjoy this beach due to its crowded, urban location. Actually, Warwick Long Bay would be especially convenient for guests of the nearby hotels, and people who like to be in the center of the action.

How to Access The Beach
The beach is accessible via the South Road, which runs along the southern coast of the island. Heading east on South Road, guests will pass Frith Estate Road on the left, which lies shortly before the beach's car park. A winding road on the right will bring vehicles close to the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

Stretching a half-mile over the southern coast of the island, Warwick Long Bay is the longest beach on Bermuda. Located on the south side of South Shore Park, the beach is surrounded by native vegetation and grasses, as well as steep cliffs. The waters are protected and fairly calm thanks to a coral reef just 200 ft. off-shore.

There is also a snack bar here. If available, you could also try local specialties from one of the mobile vendors who typically set up on this shoreline.

Restrooms are available at Warwick Long Bay. You'll find the waters off-shore to be clear and good for snorkeling, so purchase or rent some equipment if you want to see the underwater world. Warick Long Bay is an isloated beach area, so it is ideal for travelers seeking solitude.

Still, you will need to realize that while there are definitely some forms of comforts available at Warwick Long Bay, it happens to be found inside an active, busy area. If busy-beaches are not something you want, it will be a decent cause to plan your day for times when there are less people, perhaps arriving before the sun it at its hottest. If you come later, you could possibly not fully enjoy all the amenities that Warwick Long Bay has to offer.
