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.

Located on the island of Bermuda, 0.4 miles northwest of Hog Bay, this beach is nicely positioned on the coast. You should think about stopping by even if you are not staying in the vicinity. Hog Bay is one beach that is not terribly crowded, but it's not completely quiet and secluded either.

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.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business.
