We rent a house on Brewers Bay each year and just a minute or two drive down the hill is beautiful Brewers Bay. There are a couple of reef structures to snorkel, but the best, by far, is the complex on the far left of the bay as you stand on the beach facing the water. And, there's a little... More

We always stay in a Villa above Brewers Bay when we come to the BVIs. Brewers Bay has a great beach and is so peaceful and beautiful (gets a bit more crowded on cruise ship day of course). Great for families and along the cliff wall there is a reef that is fun to snorkel. Only a couple little beach... More

This place is great, our taxi guy told me and my wife and our 5 teenagers to come here instead of cane, and he was right. This place was a lot of fun, and the kids didn't have to worry about anyone when they played because this place is a lot less busy then cane, they have a restaurant, and... More

This is a quiet beach with two small refreshment bars . There are sunloungers available to hire. There is a strong undercurrent here so extreme care is needed if swimming in the sea.

This was a great trip with five girlfriends - no plans whatsoever and each day planned at the last minute - and it was perfect! At Brewers Bay, we were the only ones there that day - well, other than some friendly chickens that pecked around our towels all afternoon. We LOVED it.

This is a great little beach with good snorkeling. Be advised though, they will charge you for use of the lounge chairs. There is a sign but we didn't notice it at first. There is also a little bar where you can get a drink and some food.

Our family loved this beach. Secluded and not very busy. The waves were small and so it was perfect for the children. The beach was fine sand without a whole lot of rocks or shells. The sand was a light brown color causing the water to not look the bright blue tropical color we are used to in the Caribbean... More

I went both to Brewers and Canegarden bay. I liked Cane Graden better Beacuse I know it gets more CROWDED, but there are more services! Brewers bay is very quiet, good snorkling and very peaceful. In my opinion, you should go!

Whether or not you are a surfer, this beach is a must. Off the beaten path, we've never round it to be crowded. One of our favorites.

From the cruise ship, we got a taxi outside the gate. Price was $8 per person if they had 4 or more people or $12 per person if the two of went to Brewers Bay. I recommend you get a taxi that has doors and not one of the open sided, safari taxis. The road over the mountain to the... More
