Achilles Bay Beach, so named because of its heel-like shape, is one of the few Bermuda beaches that is not very well known to the majority of tourists. The beach, located north east of the town of St. George’s, is not on any route bus and you will need to walk to get there, unless you have a scooter. Then you need to climb down the stairs from Blackbeard’s Hideout restaurant to get onto the beach.
The waters of Achilles Bay are shallow for quite a long distance so it is easy and safe to swim and explore underwater for children and adults alike. There are many little rocks scattered in the bay and home to many species of fish such as parrot fish and other marine life like squids. This make up for the absence of close coral reefs and provide hours of entertainment for snorkelers and scuba divers.
The highlight of Achilles Bay Beach for many children is the large rock that juts out of the water with a ladder going into the water. You will need to swim to reach it, and you can either climb down to have a look in the water or use the rock as a diving board. Just make sure you remember that it is quite shallow there when you dive or jump.
