Warwick Long Bay Bermuda
A Top Snorkeling Beach
Warwick Long Bay beach is a long and magnificent half a mile stretch of pink sands.
Against a backdrop of grape & cedar trees, and low grasses, the beach looks fabulous. It's one of the most picturesque beaches of Bermuda.
Warwick Long Bay lies on South Shore Park
in Warwick parish and to the east of Horseshoe bay beach.
The beach is full of little coves and rocks. The main entrance to the beach is at the west end. A short road winds down from the car park.
From the car park, you can also walk towards Jobson’s Cove
, another beautiful small beach nearby. Warwick long bay is an ideal beach if you want to escape from the typical beach crowd. The beach here is quiet and secluded as you can see in the pictures below.

Long stretch of the beach and a secluded area - Warwick Long Bay
Warwick Long Bay actually covers an area of several beaches including Warwick Long Bay, Chaplin Bay
, Jobson's Cove
and Stone hole Bay. The largest of them is Warwick Long Bay and marked by two huge boulders offshore at the western tip of the beach.
It’s also a favorite location for early morning swimmers, joggers and the occasional horseback riders. The steep cliffs and shrubs that cover the hills offer good privacy to sunbathers.
There is a coral reef less than 60 meters from the shore and the reef seems to be floating on the water. Despite frequent winds, the waves here are surprisingly small due to this offshore reef.
There are excellent snorkeling areas all along Warwick long bay beach. However the shallow reefs that come out of the water during the low tide can be a little tricky to negotiate.
Large number of parrotfish feed along the water edge in the late afternoon. You can see them from the beach. It's a wonderful sight!
A concession stand at the car park rents snorkeling gears from May to October. There is a nice children playground close to the beach. You will see plenty of birds around the park.
A path runs through this area to the Jobson’s Cove. My son loves a horse ride along this trail making me follow him jogging all the way. There are public restrooms at the end of Warwick long bay. During the summer time, a lunch wagon often supplies light snacks.
