Head down to an active and historic stretch of Bermuda's coast at Tobacco Bay. Rental shacks supply gear for a variety of water sports and activities, including paddleboarding, snorkeling, and kayaking. Cool off in the relaxing onsite restaurant and cafe, serving up locally caught fish and cold beer. Although now exclusively a place of recreation and relaxation, this spot has also had a role in historical events: a group of Bermudians sympathetic to the American independence movement stole gunpowder from the British in St. George's and loaded it onto ships at the bay. With our international travel planner, St. George attractions like Tobacco Bay can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Tobacco bay is a gorgeous beach & bay, and depending what time you go at you could have it to yourself. Once the cruise ship people leave for the day this beach is practically empty. The snorkeling is great and the beach itself is nice. The water is shallow and it goes out for quite a distance. There is a restaurant/bar nearby .
