Beautiful white sand, clear water, gorgeous. Located on the east end. Definitely our favourite beach on the island.

This beach, which only had one person there when we went, was absolutely picture perfect. It looked like a postcard setting & reminded me of Hawaii a great deal. There was a bit of shade & the sand/water was perfect. You will never want to leave if you go!

A great secluded beach. We felt like we were the only couple on the entire island. Crystal clear water.

Nice beach with easy access from cane garden bay. As is usual in Tortola beach also means easy access to food & drink. Good spot for families.

There are 2 Longbay beaches in Tortola. This one at West End is very beautiful to look at but there are many large rocks in the water and a great deal of surf even on calm days.

This time however we had a beautiful villa only a short walk away on the western edge of Long Bay Beach Resort. I love beaches & could spend all day on one whether its got facilities or... More

Long Bay beach is quite a sight. Take a nice long walk along the beach, head for the British Flag tied to long pole. When the flag is flying, Nature Boy is serving some of the best Rum Punch I have ever had. He claims to make the punch himself from 10 different fruits, sometimes it is 12. Nevertheless, it... More
