Windsor Beach

Open only to members of the Mid Ocean Club on Bermuda, Windsor Beach, is both large and resort-like. Since it is not open to the public, it is very well maintained and doesn't have the touristy feel that comes with many popular beaches in the Caribbean. Members can feel free to relax without the worry of a crowded and busy shore.

Set on the southern outskirts of St. George's Parish, Windsor Beach is on the South East edge of Bermuda. You might want to drop by regardless of whether you're staying particularly close by.

How to Access The Beach

The beach is located right off of Tucker's Town Road. After you park, you will need show your member ID at the guarded gate and then you will have access straight to the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

Despite its popularity among members, Windsor Beach gives the impression of solitude. This is because the beach is very large and spreads out for quite a bit, making it capable of serving all members without feeling crowded.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location.
