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.

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
