Locals don’t enter the Atlantic until after May 24th. Any earlier than that is … winter. 😎
Afraid of any body of water larger or colder than a hot tub, I did try to overcome my aversion. After May 24th I started walking down to the beach each morning.
About a 10 minute walk is Tobacco Bay.
Some mornings I’d continue on to the beaches near Fort St. Catherine.
Bermuda has dozens and dozens of pocket beaches, most of them not busy at any given time.
