Centrally located on Tortola's north side, this is probably the busiest beach since its beauty is often compared to Magen's Bay on St. Thomas.

The food at Myett's was good, but the music was too loud. Stopped in for dinner on our sailing dinner. It's a good place to stop.

Beautiful beach. Peaceful in the off season except for the Wednesday cruise days in May -- always check the cruise schedule unless this is your thing. Nothing like floating out in the bay with a drink in your hand, heading to your lounge chair and umbrella for a little shade, refill your drink and repeat. Get their early to watch... More

Nice Caribbean beach with amenities. Local bars make good and inexpensive pain killers among other things. Worth the cab fare.

Nice harbor, beautiful setting, and lots of mooring balls to pick up. Be sure and get there before 3:00 otherwise you will need to anchor.

Plenty of space for anchorage and mooring. Well protected from the typical East winds most times of the year. Not the same isolated tropical paradise of Jimmy Buffet's lyrics cause of the increasing commercialization onshore but still a very good sailing destination.

We'd already heard that Cane Garden Bay (CGB) was beautiful and one of Tortola's best beaches, yet when we drove by, we thought it presented as a bit run down, nothing special. During our second week of vacation, we were on the Ridge Road and wanted to stop for some provisions. We stopped at the store at CGB for water... More

Beautiful, soft sand beach, calm crystal blue water, fun atmosphere steps off the beach, with many great little restaurants/bars offering great tropical cocktails and bites!

A five-minute drive from our lodgings, the postcard-perfect Cane Garden Bay features colorful bars, restaurants and small hotels, which offer lounge chairs and umbrellas free of charge. After a jog on the palm-fringed white strand, a dip in the calm turquoise sea and a picnic lunch, we departed when the people started to outnumber the diving pelicans.

The bay is beautiful with plenty to do on shore. We went to the Callwood Distillery for a tour and bought some rum. We hung out in a bar called Cyndy Tide for drinks and watched fish and rays swim by our table. The sunset is fantastic and the night scene is amazing with the lights on shore.

Most of the time there were less then 50 people on the beach but watch for cruise ships. Plenty of free chairs and places to grab a snack..calm clear protected beach!
