Dating back to the 18th and 19th Centuries, Bermudian whalers were known to sail out of this bay. These days, of course, visitors view whales with wonder rather than the desire for ambergris, whalebone, blubber or meat. Whale watching is popular in April, when you can catch the migrating herds heading to their summer feeding grounds. Swimming is safe close in, where the water is shallow. The beach has Bermuda's characteristic pink sand, which often disappears at high tide. The park area contains one of Bermuda's many gun batteries.
