Brewers had great snorkeling, reef is not too far off shore and is sheltered so easy for beginners. The approach driving into Brewers from the mountains is breathtaking as you look down on it. Brewers has plenty of shade and there's a places at both ends of the beach to get drinks and snacks. You can also rent lounge chairs... More

We were supposed to go to Virgin Gorda for the day to snorkel at Maho Bay. When we got to the ferry we realized our plans weren't going to work out. We walked over to the airport and gave the driver a few different locations we wanted to go - he immediately said - go to Brewers Bay! There was... More

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.

When the cruise ships flood Cane Garden Bay with people, drive a bit further along the coast and come here. Chairs rentals available. Bathrooms. Good bar as well. We didn't have any food, so can't rate that, but it was available. The views can't be beat.

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.

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
