John Smith's Bay


A long, flat expanse of pink sand, great snorkelling on nearby reefs and lifeguards throughout the summer makes John Smith's Bay an ideal place to spread out your beach towel on the South Shore. This bay was named for Captain John Smith, the same man who famously encountered Pocahontas during his tenure at Jamestown, and who later created the first map of Bermuda. There's a convenient parking area with bathrooms, and during the high season, a lunch cart often sells drinks and snacks.

“Best beach ever...”

My wife and I was this beach often. It is simply beautiful. You won't regret taking a winter dip. The beach is maintained but offers little shade. Bring you umbrellas.
