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.

This was one of the more beautiful beaches I have every been on. And what's nice is that it is NOT crowded. We were there for 1 week and only on one day did we see day trippers come in. The beach is may a mile long (not sure) and it's pristine! Nice long walks interrupted only once by a... More

It is a long horseshoe shaped beach with no facilities or vendors or sunbeds etc. There were 25 people on our coach, and when we... More

Long Bay Beach is my favorite beach on Tortola. The water here is amazing (you can see all the shades of blue) and very clear. This beach is long enough that even when there is a lot of people there, you have enough space for yourself. It is also very quiet (no loud music or other disturbances!). The views are... More

The beaches here are great! If traveling by boat you'll enjoy the other little islands along the way and the waters are crystal clear. The kids will have a blast!

We walked here from Sebastians, the view from the cliff was awesome. Once we got down to the beach the sand and water were nice. We met Nature Boy who has a small beach bar set up since 2009. Drinks and beer are $4, Very cool, he taught me how to weave palm. The outside of his little beach bar... More

On the way to the way to the airport the leave Tortola we stopped at Long Bay Beach, we're glad we did. What a great beach stop once you have arrived on Tortola. Beautiful sand, water, and scenery, and not another person in sight, our next visit will definitely include a day on Long Bay Beach.

Swimming can be a bit tough due to some rocks that must be traversed before getting to a sandy bottom, but it's worth the trek. This beach is great because if you get hungry or thirsty you can walk to one of two restaurant/bars that overlook the beautiful expanse of and satisfy your hunger/thirst without having to sacrifice the view....

We absolutely loved this beach! It was so serene and beautiful! There are really nice beach chairs to relax on and decent bars and restaurants. The water was a little rough though. Not sure if it's always that way, but it was a little scary just going in swimming. Definitely recommend this place to spend a day at!
