A Top Favorite Beach in Bermuda
Jobsons Cove is a beautiful and secluded small beach surrounded by cliffs all around and is completely separated from the sea. The beach is located in Bermuda's Warwick parish and is adjacent to Warwick long Bay.
Jobsons cove is a very popular beach for both locals and visitors, particularly for families with children. This picture-perfect beach with its pink sands, gentle waves and calm waters gives the feel of a serene hideaway. It's also an ideal place to relax and picnic.
The enormous rocks made of limestone and hardened volcanic lava do an amazing job of blocking out the constant breeze. So unlike most other beaches, the air is extremely calm at the Jobsons cove.
The rocks along with the coral reefs keep the waves inside the Jobsons cove quite low. The water is extremely calm and shallow making this beach perfect for swimming and snorkeling. This bay is like a small protected natural swimming pool. Sometimes we would swim up to the massive expanse of rock that divides Jobson's cove from Warwick long bay.

The water is crystal clear and you can easily see the sandy bottom. The water is about 2m (that is 6 1/2 ft.) deep for a long way out into the bay.
My son is able to snorkel to his heartís content here and loves to watch the array of tropical fish among the reef. He often says that itís almost like an aquarium out there.

The main sections of the beach is linked by sandy trails which break into the dunes. Horse riders often use these trails. There are no toilets or restroom facilities here but itís a short walk to Warwick long bay where you can avail the facilities.
Bus #7 comes to Warwick long Bay beach (about 40 minutes from Dockyard). There is a short sandy pathway from the main road to the beach and from there a sandy trail towards west (i.e. toward right as you face the water) leads to Jobson's Cove. It's †hardly 200 meters walk. There is also a paved pathway from the main road at the western end of Warwick Long Bay beach. At the end of it there is a car park and you can take a short walk from there to Jobson's Cove towards west. Check out Bermuda Beach Map

Was just in Bermuda May 8-14 with my two gal pals. We spent Sunday on the beach at Jobson's cove. It was the most beautiful place and we loved it. Was very windy that day and the water was actually a bit rough but it did not stop us from going in. A very special spot on your beautiful Island and we can't wait to return next year.

In 1955 my husband was in the Air Force and our family was posted to Bermuda, with the Hurricane Hunters there. We loved to take our three little girls, ages 4, 3 and 2 to this cove where they were able to play in the shallow tide. They are now in their 50's but still have wonderful memories of this place and our time there.
