POINTS OF INTEREST
On the eastern tip of the island in St. David's, Clearwater is a long sandy strip of beach that's popular with serious swimmers and triathletes who use it as a training ground. But don't be intimidated: the young and old also flock here to wade in the shallow water, and there are buoy markers that identify where the beach becomes deeper. Keep your eyes peeled for turtles! Clearwater is one of the few beaches in Bermuda that has a restaurant on the premises called Gombey's, serving kids' picnic favorites such as burgers and fries as well as island classics like Bermudian fish chowder and Jamaican jerk chicken. There's also an in-house bar when the five-o'clock-somewhere mood strikes. Beach bathrooms, lifeguards during the tourist season (April through September), and a playground make this a great choice for families. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (free); toilets. Best for: partiers; sunrise; swimming; walking.
