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.

Over the mountain road from Cane Garden Bay, Brewers Bay is not the easiest beach to drive to, but it's well worth it. Beautiful beach for sunbathing and swimming. Great snack bar with excellent hamburgers. Your own private beach!

Brewers is a gorgeous bay, off the tourist path and popular with the locals. The sand is golden and the waters offer some of the best snorkeling on the island! Be aware of the strong undertow in the winter months. There are two beach-side bars for delicious rum punch, a local beer or a bushwacker. Yum! This is also one... More

Brewers Bay has a very nice beach, the bay is full of places to explore by snorkeling, cannot get boats into the Bay due to all the coral and plant life, so it makes a great place to see the diversity. The restaurant is no great shakes, burger and fries, nothing fancy. The trees on the beach are beautiful and... More

This is where the good surfers go when the northerlies are running. The folks you see at Long Bay are just practicing for the time they graduate to Brewers. It is less visited than Cane Garden, but when the cruise ships are in it can get crowded. Go to the east end of the beach near the campground to avoid... More

Nicole's beach bar was situated on the bay just perfectly...they have great hamburgers. The snorkeling on this Bay was the best we had found on the island.

You've seen the postcards with the palms on the beach and the beautiful water.....it was Brewer's Bay. It is a U shaped bay, so the water is like glass. There are two ways to get to this isolated beach, the road and the path. Of course, we found this out after we got there by the path. But, that made... More

This is in my opinion the second best snorkeling behind Smuggler's Cove. Much easier to access and Nicole's spot for a decent lunch makes this a great place to go with your family or friends.

Brewer's Bay is our favorite bay in Tortola!!! The bartender is a PUTZ! I find him very rude and jerky. Unfortunately for us Nicole's was not operating, so we had the PUTZ make us a hot dog, 2 inch hot dog......9 inch bun!!! If you ask him for a drink....you have to pull him away from his reality TV shows!... More
