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.

This is a lot different than some (most) of the other Caribbean beaches, it has a great, non-commercial vibe. There are several good restaurants along the beach, although I would avoid Quitos. It's a ripoff, but there are several authentic ones here. Great place to stay - several small hotels and an anchorage area and moorings for boaters/sailors. Love it.

The beach here is amazing! Plenty of space to sit and lounge around. You have to eat at Myet's. Great food and happy service!

Most years our cruise ships visit Tortola, and we head straight for a taxi to take us to the beach $6 each to the beach and $6 back and the drivers do come back for you. It is one of the best beaches. This year it was raining hard in Road Town but we headed over the ridge to the... More

The locals are as friendly as any people I have ever met. The food and music are great. The beach and the sunsets are out of this world!

What an awesome place. We spent the day here and I loved it. We just relaxed at the bar in between getting some sun on the beach.

One of the larger bays on the island, Cane Garden Bay is also more commercial and has the feeling of a small town rather than the more secluded, rustic areas around. We ate at Myett's and I saw the largest roaches I've ever seen in my life scurrying all over the bar and floor; beware. Good place to moor or... More

Lovely sea and beach but not a lot to do after you have visited the 3 or 4 restaurants, menu is the same in most restaurants which does become boring after a week

Stopped here as part of an island tour for a quick look and swim. It seems to be the place they all hit. The bay itself has great natural beauty and the water looks really nice. However, it is crowded and there is a concentration of beach bars and tacky souvenir stands that detracts from the overall effect. Might be... More
