Special Permission Is Required To Visit
Nonsuch Island Beach Bermuda is located on Nonsuch Island, which is a wildlife refuge. As such, special permission must be obtained from the Department of Conservation Service before visiting the beach and island. The beach is only accessible by boat and the Department of Conservation Services may be able to arrange transportation as it gives tours of the island.
Since Nonsuch Island Beach is a protected natural beach, it has more natural vegetation and rocks than other beaches on Bermuda. So, protective footwear should be worn when visiting. However, there is plenty of soft sand to stretch out on. While exploring the rest of the island, beachgoers must remember to not disturb the wildlife, as it is illegal in addition to being dangerous.
