- On the Beach
Coral Beach & Tennis Club
You'll find a few beachside dining options at Coral Beach & Tennis Club, a 26-acre resort at this members and guests only private club that is located along Bermuda's famous South Shore. The Beach Terrace is a casual spot with food and drink to help you refuel between beach walks; lunch is served every day and dinner is available Thursday through Sunday. The Frozen Hut, meanwhile, is a low-key beach bar with a lunch menu that includes salads, Bermudian fishcake bites and frozen cocktails. They’ll also bring beach snacks and icy beverages right out to your beach chair. It’s a great place to catch a sunset to the sounds of live island music.
Hamilton Princess & Beach Club
Nestled on a private stretch of sand along the South Shore, the Beach Club is a serene, luxurious outpost of the Grand Dame of Bermuda, the Hamilton Princess. It's here you'll find hammocks in the water for your lounging pleasure, a menu consisting of mezze, Mediterranean-inspired small plates, classic Bermudian cocktails and a wine menu that includes champagne by the glass. Thursday through Saturday, dine in the sand as fire dancers, live musicians and DJs help set the tone for the evening.
Grotto Bay Beach Resort
With its striking views of Castle Harbour's turquoise waters, the Bayside Terrace Grill at Grotto Bay Beach Resort is an excellent spot for grabbing a casual lunch from April through November. On Monday and Thursday evenings, you'll find decadent spreads consisting, respectively, of barbecue and surf & turf, served with a side of live entertainment from local musicians.
Casual Beach Bars & Cafés
Bermuda’s laid-back island vibe also lends itself to come-as-you-are beach bars you can duck into between cliff-jumping and cave-exploring sessions. You’ll find classic island food and drink at these beachfront spots – and there’s no need to rinse the sand from your toes.
Hammerheads Bar & Grill at Snorkel Park Beach
Steps from Royal Naval Dockyard, Hammerheads Restaurant & Bar is a family-friendly bar and grill that doubles as an al fresco, late-night dance club. The food menu at this popular beachfront spot includes plenty of handhelds as well as Bermudian favourites like fish chowder served, of course, with a splash of Black Seal Rum. Grab a cold beverage and head for an umbrella-shaded bench in the sand. If you’re up for an ocean adventure, Snorkel Park Beach has snorkels, paddleboards, jet-skis and more available for rent.
Tobacco Bay Beach
For beachside dining with views of the water and dramatic rock formations, look no further than Tobacco Bay Beach.
