Great spot to score waves or just kick it with friends and family. Crystal clear water & a board rental spot right at the beach if you forgot to bring one.

We never visit Tortola without a visit to the quiet Josiah's Bay! There's nothing like getting out of the car and seeing Naomi waiting on the porch of her restaurant waiving while we make our way to the almost private, pristine, beautiful beach.

This is your place. Aside from the surf hut and the food spot there is literally nothing else here. It's a little out of the way and the road coming in makes you feel lost the whole way. I like getting lost... and this was a great place to end up. Cane Garden Bay is a little too touristy for... More

Came with the Getaway and only had half a day, and wanted to get away from the tourist trap and after reading previews here, we went for it, and can only give positive words. A scenic drive to affordable 10 USD per person in taxi and arrival at a very nice beach where we shared it with just 4 other... More

we didn't like this beach at all. it felt hippyish and we got bit by sand fleas...but we aren't surfers, some in our group boogie board. Maybe we are too old for this beach...

I have been to the Caribbean 20+ times but never knew you could surf there. This beach was beautiful and not overrun with people. There was a couple of restaurants and bars as well as a surfboard rental booth. This beach was great check it out.
