This is our favorite beach on Tortola. However it has been discovered by the cruise ships and gets pretty crowded on some days. The beach is white sand. The water is usually clear. There is a long reef running along the left edge that is easily accessible from the beach, and that extends well out into the bay. Excellent snorkeling.... More

Great jungle off the beaten track location with terrific beach and a couple of good bars. Way less developed and authentic than Cane Garden bay. Worth a visit.

My wife and I arrived around 3pm. There were 3 cruise ships docked in Road Town - only 10 people on the beach. By 5 pm everyone, except us, had left. Beautiful quiet beach.

Brewers Bay is fantastic. A great place to swim/sun and enjoy one of the prettiest spots on Tortola. Uncrowded when we visited, and close to where we stayed, it was our go to beach several times on our vacation.

After our experience at Magens bay, not necessarily bad, just too many people!! We found brewers bay. Its by the airport. No charge to enter. Lots of parking, and a lovely quiet beach with a great view. (if you dont like the noise of the odd plane taking off then avoid it) I found the plans great to watch as... More

My husband and I found this place on our last day.. what a tragedy because we would have been there every day if we had known it was here! The beach is huge and has a lot of bars surrounding it. We didn't have to suffer from the cruise ship tourists, and so the beach was literally empty, which is... More

Brewers Bay has a WONDERFUL beach and is usually pretty quiet. Do not go on days when the cruise ships are in town because the tour buses come to Brewers. The trip down to the bay is very steep with switchbacks but it is worth the drive. There is some snorkeling along the rocks to the left of the beach.... More

Great beach, just harder to find than most. Far less people than Cane Garden Bay. Has a simple beach bar named Nicole's that will meet your basic needs. It is much larger than when I first went many moons ago, but still quaint. The snorkeling is further out so be prepared to swim. I love this place for its beach,... More

Just beyond Cane Garden Bay is Brewers Bay, we negotiated the roads to get there and was rewarded by a great, low key beach. not as busy as Cane Garden but does have it's share of cruise ship folks. We spent a good part of the day at Brewers Bay and had a great time, a must visit location.

It is a small beach and most of the snorkeling is pretty far off shore so have some fins with you at this beach. There is a pretty good drop-off so be comfortable with your swimming skills as you are in 15 foot to water almost the entire time and there is some undertow.
