Elbow Bach is a beach on Bermuda that located in Paget Parish off the South Road and between the Elbow Beach Resort and Coral Beach & Tennis Club. The beach has a gentle curve resembling an elbow and hence the name. It's one of the most beautiful pink south shore beaches of Bermuda. While a part of the beach is privately owned by the resort, a good stretch is actually public.

Open Water Swimming Career[edit]
