Owner description: 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.

Four of us from a Windsurf yacht sail wanted to spend the day on the beach in Tortola. We took a taxi to Cane Garden Bay after reading the fabulous reviews. If you have been to nice beaches either in Anguilla or St. Barth's, you will not like this beach. It was crowded and dirty. The beach chair rentals had... More

Summary: • An absolute must-visit for anyone staying on Tortola. A long, calm water beach lined with friendly beach vendors and fun bars/restaurants. Also happens to have one of the best right-hand point breaks in the world at the northeast point of the bay, which is awesome to watch from the bars. Beach Pros: • Very clean. • Bars on... More

We stayed on Cane Garden Bay for two weeks. Lovely spot. We stayed right in the Cane Garden Bay Cottages behind the graveyard. The beach there is wonderful, clean, sandy with clear water. When you walk along the beach you do not have to look at multimillion dollar resorts but rather traditional Caribbean beach bars. No one is accosting you... More

This was our first Caribbean cruise, our first two stops were Freeport in the Bahamas and Samana, Dominican Republic. Neither had beaches we could visit. We took a shuttle to this beach and were instantly in love. It's white sandy beaches stretch through the inner curve of the bay. You'll see many people there under umbrellas, basking on the beach...

This beach reminded me of a US beach more than anything. It was so full of people that it was almost uncomfortable. There were a ton of restaurants and shopping. It's nice to say that you've been there done that, but there are better beaches on the island to go to!

This is the most beautiful beach in the BVI IMHI. The swimming is great and the beach bars and restaurants offer anything you would want. I have to add that I think the best way to see this bay is on a boat, anchored off.

Hearing Quito sing is a must for all travelers to Tortola. Bobbys is a great grocery store for supplies. Myetts also has music and a fun atmosphere.

Lots of water activities like kayaking and paddle boarding and plenty of restaurants to choose from. I recommend Mayett's for a bite to eat if you wander over to Cane Garden Bay

This is my favorite beach on Tortola. Don't forget a fresh coconut from Pedro. They are delicious and Pedro climbs the trees every morning !

The beach itself is beautiful, Myett's is a great place for breakfest and lunch. But if you are on a sailing trip as most in BVI you will get to much more beautiful beaches on smaller islands. Lets say that Cane Garden Bay is a beautiful sandy beach that you can find in many places around the globe when you... More
