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.

Stopped in Tortola during and cruise and having walked age Mountain National park we wanted some relax time. It is a beautiful beach with an excellent selection of bars and restaurants. However it is also on the list of cruise excursions so was filled with guests all sporting their Cunard towels. Touristy but nice. Easy to get taxis to and... More

Went as part of a cruise excursion. Nice clean beach. Plenty of places for food and drinks. I've been to Roadtown before but didn't venture from town before. Quite a ride to the beach. If you don't like roller coasters it may not be for you. Driver was knowledgeable, friendly and pointed out places of interest along the way.

Cane Garden Bay is a beautiful beach, surrounded with palm trees. You can find many bars where you can have drinks and enjoy the atmosphere. It's definitely a nice place to visit when you are in Tortola. The sea, the sunset and the palm trees really make it a special place.

After our third trip to the BVI's we finally made it into this bay. We tried to find the entrance between the reef on our last trip but couldn't see the channel markers. We were told later that heavy seas had washed them away. This time the wind was once again from the north creating huge rollers which the surfers... More

Lots going on here if you want or just laze about on the golden sands and cold beers. Lively bars, great Caribbean atmosphere, warm water, gently shelving beach and lovely surrounding coastline.

Adorable cottages in a cute setting. Easy to get to know your neighbors as there are 2 per unit. Very convenient to the beach yet far enough from the nightlife to not be bothered by noise. Great value, clean and an accommodating staff. We occupied 3 of the 4 cottages with our wedding party. Everyone loved the place! I highly... More

Beautiful view of the bay with St Thomas in the background. Lots to do. Something for everyone. Someone please put the tire swing back together.
