“Sandys is the western most Parish or a county of Bermuda. It's named after Sir Edwin Sandys who made large investments to colonize the parish in early 1600s. The parish name is pronounced as 'Sands'. Sandys has five islands that are joined by bridges. The islands are Ireland Island North, Ireland Island South, Boaz Island, Watford Island and the biggest of all, Somerset Island. The Royal Naval Dockyard where most of the cruise ships anchor, is located at Ireland Island North. Being farthest from the congested Hamilton City, the parish provides refreshing piece and serenity that are quickly disappearing in tourist populated Bermuda.”
Sandys Beaches and Parks

However the beach with its beautiful white strip of sand usually remains quiet most of the time. But there is no bus or ferry stop nearby. You will need to take your scooter or cycle to reach Parson's Bay. It is in Ireland Island and on the Lagoon road just before it becomes Craddock Road. The area is known as Lagoon Park.

There is an adjacent valley area having the 19th century Royal Naval Cemetery. It has graves of many Royal Navy officers many of who died out of yellow fever. To reach the park from the dockyard, come south and cross the narrow Grey’s Bridge. Lagoon park is located at Ireland Island (South) in Sandys. The park is open from sunrise to sunset. Admission is free.
Black Bay Beach: There are several small beautiful public beaches that are usually more enjoyable during the low tides. In high tides, they tend to disappear. The beaches here are shallow and great for swimming. Black Bay is located on the northern side of Malabar Road in Ireland Island (South) and opposite to the Royal Naval Cemetery. Bus routes #7 and 8 stop at the Cemetery from where you can walk down to the beach.
Callaghan Bay: This is a nice beautiful beach just off the Somerset Road and at the beginning of West Side road. Bus #7 and #8 both stop here.
