Hog Bay

Located deep within Hog Bay Park, the Hog Bay's beach offers an incredible intimate and isolated experience. Guests should plan to arrive during low tide, as the beach completely washes away during high tide. The beach features rougher sand and often contains shells and sea urchins, so visitors should bring footwear.

Positioned on the island of Bermuda, 0.4 miles northwest of Hog Bay, this beach is nicely positioned on the coast. You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you are staying in the immediate vicinity. Hog Bay is one part of Bermuda's coast which rarely gets too crowded, even though it's central to many of the area's urban amenities.

How to Access The Beach
Access to the beach requires walking on a long trail, so only those physically able are advised to visit. As well, the beach availability is completely dependent on time of low tide, so plan accordingly.

Amenities and Ambiance

Located on Sandy's Parish and deep within the Hog Bay Park, Hog Bay Beach looks and feels secluded. The water at low tide is excellent for swimming and the beach itself stretches extensively down the coastline. The trail leading up to the beach consists of awesome fields and cherry and spice trees.

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