Perfect for small kids
Nov. 2019
A very clean, calm park with restrooms. Large open field. Hiking area. Giant children's playground and a very calm, gentle protected beach. Perfect for the little ones that are afraid of the ocean or can't swim. Such slight wave action.. Placed along shore are lifesaving devices.

Perfect beach for young children
Jun. 2019 • Family
The south shore "pink sand" beaches get all the love for obvious reasons, but Shelly Bay is perfect for families. The bay is protected so the waves are gentle, and there is a playground at the beach. There are benches under shade trees for those who are sun-sensitive, and the beach is never crowded. The only downside is that there are no facilities, hopefully a temporary situation.

Excellent beach for those with small children (not the best if you don't have little ones though).
Jul. 2018 • Family
We had our two small children with us so this was a wonderful stop since they both could play in the very shallow and calm waters here. The depth of the water barely changes as you walk out into the ocean and I probably walked out 250 yards or so and was still only up to my chest. The beach is small and narrow, but there is also a park right next to the sand that the kids could go play at when they needed a change of scenery. Just depends on your group whether this is a good stop for you or not.

This is just a wonderful beach for children who cannot swim and for those who can. you can walk quite a distance out before the water comes to your neck. clear sparkling water most of the year. just an awesome beach to sunbathe on.

Beautiful Beach! - We had it all to ourselves! Great for Couples, Families & Solo Travelers
Jun. 2018 • Couples
We were on a cruise and our ship docked in the capital of Hamilton. We've been to Bermuda more than a dozen times and friends that live in Bermuda told us about this beach. Our friends were not on the island when we visited so we decided to visit this beach. We were not disappointed! We took the bus from the station in Hamilton. Before getting on the bus we stopped at a supermarket near the bus station and got some cheese, fruit, crackers, nuts, crisps. We had a bottle of wine as well. It took us less than 30 mins to get to the beach. The bus stop is right across the street from the beach. There is a building where, I believe they have a refreshment stand and rent beach chairs and towels on the weekend. We were there on a weekday, so nothing was open. There is a playground for kids. Bar-b-Ques for public use. We brought our own beach blankets and had a wonderful time. We were the only one's on the beach. Except for one elderly man hunting for treasure with his metal detector. The water was like glass, so calm. It was a wonderful day. We stayed for a couple of hours. There were some mothers that came to the playground with their kids, but we could barely hear them. We decided to leave around 4:30 pm. We waited at the bus stop, a beautiful pastel hut with a white limestone roof. After about 20 mins without a bus we hailed the next cab that drove by. He brought us back to Hamilton. It was about a 10 minute drive and cost less than $10.00 USD. Bermuda Dollars & US Dollars are an equal exchange and cab drivers accept both currencies. Most cab drivers will not accept debit or credit cards. It was a wonderful day! Can't wait to go back!

family Beach Good for children and especially good to teach your child how to swim
Sep. 2018 • Family
the perfect place to meet the locals that have small children as this is a family beach and the atmosphere is playful and children can learn to swim as there are no waves which makes learning easy also there is playground.
