A perfect getaway for a day, this charming, half-mile strip of soft white sand is isolated and rarely visited since it is accessible only by a small dirt road.

The colors are perfect, the sand is soft and if you're not staying on Long Bay, there is still pretty easy access. Not crowded with a couple of beachside restaurants (skip the resort!) and fun surf and rocks to explore.

Let me start by saying there are SO MANY beautiful beaches on Tortola and BVI that this one was just hard to love. Because of where it is positioned on the island the wind on the beach was crazy - I mean sand blowing in your eyes all over you - just not the calmest beach around.

We went here as part of a 3 1/2 hour tour of Tortola. We got to spend 1 hour at Long Bay Beach on Beef Island. Totally secluded. My wife and I wish they would have left us here for the entire time - forget the rest of the island - who wants to leave paradise?

The British Virgin Islands has some of the most extatically beautiful beaches. Long Bay is one of the best. Although it is a little bit of a strip beach in the sense that beachfront bars and tourist villas abound, they are quite picturesque an peaceful. The ocean is a particularly crystalline blue and is incredibly peaceful, with Zion Hill on... More

This beach was one of the most beautiful on the island. We didnt get to spend as much time as we would have liked, but I would recommend you stop by to check it out.

There are apparently 2 different long bay beaches. We went to the one on the East end. If's a beautiful, quiet place (no amenities) for locals, where the sand is soft and white.

This is one of the bigger beaches to walk on. Nice half moon shape with restaurant, bar and houses along the way. A lot of vacation rental homes.

We came here only for a dip in the waves, but there are full facilities available including restaurant. This is our second trip here.

Getting here I had a jeep and I'm glad I did. Some of the roads are dirt, rutted out, and steep. The beach has some shade, not a lot, and a place for lunch (name escapes me)
