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.

not the most secluded beach.. for sure the most commercial -- so I would recommend long bay or smugglers cove or brewers bay over this for privacy and yet if you like action this is a good place to get it.

Quick cab ride over to Cane Garden Bay where we rented chairs and umbrellas and proceeded to just relax in the ocean.

you need to visit this place except wednesdays as the cruise ship passengers are transported here from Road Town Tortola, there are plenty of moorings without being crowded. the beach sand is exceptional and usual beach bars and restuarants.

One of the most beautiful and clean beaches in the world. It is a protected bay so there are no big waves.

Cane Garden Bay is a hidden gem in the BVI's. We love it when there are no cruise ships in. Great spot to grab a chair and relax taking in the beauty of the area. Lots of restaurants, shopping,paddle board rentals plus other things to do, or do nothing at all!

Cane Garden Bay is near the West End of Tortola on the North side. Steep hill to get to it but worth the drive. Nice long beach with multiple restaurants. We loved the Paradise Grill! You can rent water toys there like paddle boards. The water is super calm and, of course, gorgeous! Great energy and lots to do. Can't... More

Hard to describe but this place has a great vibe. Beautiful sunsets too. It is fairly popular but in a way that doesn't take away from its charm.

I absolutely love this beach! The water is always calm, clarity of the water goes without saying. There's plenty of beach activities and bars to quench your thirst for adventure and well, your thirst! If you visit the BVI, put this beach on your list. There's only one caveat, avoid going when there's a cruise ship in port, it gets... More

This is by far my favorite beach on Tortola, the water is always calm and inviting. We did some snorkeling and saw lots of fishes. There are lots of restaurants on the beach, its a great spot to chill, swim and meet the locals
