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.

Secluded beach

Perfect for quiet time with your love one. For the beach, pick the area in front of the parking lot. The sand is powder and just a few rocks.

Great sandy beach wonderful for boogie boarding. The resort itself has seen better days but the beach is truly beautiful and while not as commercial s Cane Garden Bay nor as seculded as Smugglers cove, there are chairs here and decent waves.

A quiet pristine beach on the NW side of Tortola. Great for walking or lounging in the water (some rocks on the east side). Halfway down the beach grab a beer from Nature Boy Bar (a local setup on the beach).

Long Bay was just that...a very long beautiful white sand beach which you could walk. The waves were constantly rolling in and they sounded so beautiful. We went here many times and also enjoyed the long bay beach bar beside it, Good rum punches!

Not the best swimming beach, Long Bay is usually rocky once you get in the water. But it is spectacularly gorgeous and unless the tide is super high, a truly great walking beach at close to a mile long.

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
