Alexandras Beach

One of Bermuda's lesser known beaches, most only see it in passing while heading to the battery of the same name. Those who do stop by are sure in for a treat, as Alexandras Battery Beach is one of the best spots on the island to search for sea glass.

Located on St. George's Island, Alexandras Beach is on the North East coast of the island, You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying in the immediate vicinity. Vacationers who want a somewhat serene and secluded beach, that's also not too far from the town's amenities should give Alexandras Beach a try. It's not the type of beach that gets packed every day, but it's also not completely secluded.

How to Access The Beach
The beach is located steps from the eastern end of Barry Road and next to Alexandras Battery Park. You should not have any problems parking at the park and walking down to the beach, or finding a taxi to take you there.

Amenities and Ambiance

Bare of trees and with plenty of sand, Alexandras Battery Beach offer plenty of space for those looking to spread out and enjoy the sun. However, those who like to walk the beach will be able to search for sea glass; actual glass made from natural processes that come in beautiful colors. While the glass shards are not as sharp as man-made glass, you still may want to wear some kind of footwear.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot. Happily, the off-shore waters are fit for snorkeling, so bring your gear if you've been hoping to get in some underwater exploration.

Since Alexandras Beach is found inside a major tourist area, you might need to hunt to get a spot!
