Great little beach, can watch birds diving into the water while chickens merrily trot around you. Beach bars and restaurants and a couple of beer shacks. Very easy to chill and spend a day there

A very popular spot, and if the cruise ships are in it will be overcrowded. The beach bar scene is among the best on Tortola. There is also a glass blowing operation a block from the beach which is well worth a visit. The distillery is a bit disappointing, but it's there if you really need to get out of... More

My husband and I visted here while we were (honeymoon) cruising on Carnival. We traveld here alone rather than booking the excursion thru the boat. The drive here is beautiful! Lots of overlooks of the island and our cab driver stopped and let us take pictures on the way there and back. We stayed here for a good part of... More

This was or first time to the BVI's and we rented a car at the West End. We stayed at the Light House Villas in Cane Garden Bay for five nights and it was an experience. We have 3 teenagers and there really was nothing for them to do at night. We were immersed with the locals who are all... More

This was a regular stop for Norwegian Cruises and for some reason they rarely go here, don't know why. Tortola is a beautiful little gem in the Eastern Caribbean not far from St. Thomas. Evert hinges is within walking distance - open market, scooter rentals, taxis and an elderly man that comes down from the mountain with his donkey and... More

We always spend at least one night in Cane Garden Bay on our BVI sailboat charters. The crew on our latest trip in July 2014 rated this one of their favorite stops. The beach is lovely and you'll have a beautiful sunset view towards Jost Van Dyke. Go ashore for Pain Killers at one of the many bars - we... More

Beach wasnt too busy either (Late july time) which was great. Can also rent water boards etc on the beach from a dollar to 25 for the surf boards etc.... More

We visited Cane Garden Bay as part of our port adventure with Disney Cruise Line a few years back. Our cruise had been rerouted because of a hurricane, and we ended up in the Eastern Caribbean instead of the Western Caribbean. As a result, we hastily needed to book new excursions the day our cruise departed from Florida! We took... More

We took a tour into this little village and man what a find!! They have a Cane rum Distillery, that's still up and running and you can get a taste; but, be careful the way they pour a person can get speedy DRUNK! We Love it. The beach! the beach! the beach!!!! The water is second to none!! The people... More
