Sinky Bay

Bermuda, I have neglected ye long enough. With all the chaos that we thought Hurricane Gustav was going to bring to Cayman, I failed to blog about you. But I could never forget you. How have you been? I have been reading the Gazette and wanted to blog about one of the ongoings, but I think I shall make this post a nice one. Everything in moderation, right?

Today we're talking about Sinky Bay, a small private beach nestled on the South Shore, on one's way to Gibb's Hill Lighthouse. While most beaches in Bermuda are public, there are a certain few that are not. Sinky Bay here, aptly named, is reserved for the residents living in close proximity to it (you won't find this beach on a map). We stumbled upon this by accident and really I've made it out there a few times and no one's asked me to prove my residence or to leave. And you can see why this beach is an exclusive. It's beautiful, no less and it's also so very tranquil. White sands and thatch umbrellas make this an ideal place to rest up. It's also a very less frequented beach and all the times I've stopped by there, I've encountered not one soul -which is probably why no one's asked me to leave. This was a favourite spot to bring guests to since driving or walking downhill towards the beach never failed to give one satisfying visual treat to our eyes. It turns you into a beach zombie. There aren't many beaches like this that can deliver a satisfying walk such as this one does. Just walking towards those aqua blues, would make you want to set up tent there permanently.

Sigh...if it one thing that I hate, it is the concept of a 'private' beach....

The picture is indeed beautiful! Strange, I have never added Bermuda on my list of potential travel destinations, but I will now!

I know this beach....we have stumbled upon it. It is gorgeous and tranquil and quiet. Of course, I most prefer Bermuda in March when humidity is not bad and tourists are very few!! I love visiting islands when there are NO CROWDS!! Fabulous pictures!!
