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.

We stopped at Cane Garden Bay during a tour; and, had nearly an hour on the beach. Although not necessary, we rented chairs and an umbrella; and, hit the beach. The water was perfectly clear, with lots of fish; and, it gets deep quickly. The sand is perfectly white; and, very clean. A local bar was running drink specials; and,... More

Well after taking a, shall I say, interesting open air cab ride to arrive the beach was perfect. Exactly what we were looking for from our excursion off the Norwegian Getaway. The water temp was great. It was just the right amount of shallow to deep. Clear and beautiful. On the side of the beach we were on there was... More

Gorgeous beach for sure! Don't go on a Wednesday as that's cruise ship day and the place will be packed and you will be charged $5 per chair. We were turned off but gave the beach a second chance on a Tuesday and it was heavenly and the chairs were free!

We visited this beach the most while were there. The water is beautiful, the beach isn't over crowded and there are several little shops and restaraunts and a place to rent water equipment. Just a lot to do in this area, made spending the whole day there easy.

About 10 of us left our cruise ship and spent the day here. Lots of sun, fun, snorkeling, eating, drinking, laughing, FUN. Well worth the trip.

CGB is a beautiful beach with some shopping as well as several options for food and drinks. It's our favorite spot in Tortola!

If you're looking for peace an quiet head for Brewers, Long Bay Beef Island or Smugglers. For a nice blend of beach and activity Cane Garden is the spot. Restaurants, Bars and watersports .. good place to meet people or enjoy some watersports. We rented a Paddleboard from the watersports company next to Myetts. They were top notch. Gave our... More

Visited this Beach as an excursion from the Norwegian Getaway. The beach is beautiful and has plenty of chairs and umbrellas to rent. We pais just $15 for two loungers and an umbrella. The beach was clean and the sand and water were amazing. The bus ride to get to the beach was pretty frightening as the roads are narrow... More

Went in July so cruise ship passengers only there on Wednesday. Couldn't wait for them to leave. Rest of time was beautiful, peaceful and a great place for paddleboarding and watching the pelicans dive bomb for fish! Way better than TV!

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.
