Set in 5 acres of terraced gardens, the Surf Side Beach Club is a romantic beachfront hideaway in Warwick boasting magnificent ocean views. A pathway, lined with hibiscus and oleander, meanders through the property and leads guests down to the Surf Sides’s small private beach. The general manager, Bryony Harvey, has been with the property for decades and delights in sharing her knowledge of Bermuda with guests.
Deluxe Rooms average 540 square feet. 18 of the rooms are situated around the pool, while the remaining 7 are at lower elevations. All have a balcony or patio with ocean views. One Bedroom Suites average 720 square feet and include a separate kitchen.
Despite its moderate size, Surf Side Beach Club has its own hair and beauty salon offering a range of treatments including facials, massage, electrolysis, waxing, and manicures. Complimentary wireless internet access is available in the lobby and around the pool.
There is no restaurant or bar at Surf Side. Claudio Vigilante’s Aqua used to be here but closed in 2010. The closest is the Swizzle Inn South Shore, around ½ mile from the property. Other restaurants fairly close by include the Fourways Inn, Blu, the Paraquet, and Mickey’s.
The nearest supermarket is Lindo’s Family Foods. It’s one of the better stores in Bermuda and is around 1 mile from the hotel. It’s not a direct bus route from Surf Side though. The Modern Mart may be a better bet for those using public transport. Just catch bus 7 going towards Hamilton and you’ll be there in a few minutes.
Walk for 5 minutes from the hotel and you can join the Warwick section of the Bermuda Railway Trail. Follow the trail east and you’ll come to Paget Marsh and the Botanical Gardens. Going west will take you to Gibbs Hill Lighthouse.
Bus number 7 (Hamilton to Dockyard) stops close to the entrance. This is by far the most scenic bus route in Bermuda and is lined with attractions and places to visit. Take the bus towards Dockyard for Astwood Park, Warwick Long Bay, Jobson’s Cove, Horseshoe Bay, Church Bay, and Fort Scaur. Buses going the opposite direction will take you to Elbow Beach and on to Hamilton.
The nearest golf courses are Belmont Hills and Riddell’s Bay. Spicelands Equestrian Centre is nearby and offers trail rides down to the beaches of South Shore Park. Tennis courts can be found at the Elbow Beach hotel.
