Devonshire Bay Bermuda
Devonshire Bay is the only public beach on the south shore of Devonshire parish. It's a scenic national park and great for families and kids. The beach is great for swimming.
There are wading pools scattered around where you will find small crabs, shrimps and small fishes. Many local families come here for picnic. The beach is fringed by baygrapes and palmettos. It's great for swimming unless there is strong wind.
As you come to the border of Devonshire bay which is full of boiler reefs, you will be able to get a wonderful view of the south coast of Bermuda.
There are ruins of a fort called Devonshire Bay Battery in the parkland area. The fort was built in 1750s by the British.
You will also see fishermen and locals mooring their small boats on the bay. The fishermen even sell their catch here. Before entering the bay, you will see handwritten boards saying fishermen selling fresh fish at the bay.
Usually you will find the fishermen selling fish on the weekdays. So if you happen to stay in an accommodation where you can cook food, try out the fresh fish. The fishermen will also make filets for you if you want. It can cost between $15 - $17 per pound.
How to Reach
Take bus #1 from Hamilton to Devonshire. From the South Road, you need to get to Devonshire Bay Road. Keep to the left and you will see that the road finally ends and the park begins. There is parking for scooters and cars.
