We really loved it here, the water was calm and clear, the reefs were active and full of fish. The beach itself is soft and white and absolutely beautiful. If you enjoy more traditional beaches because the boulders on the southside aren't your thing, then this is the beach on VG for you. Driving from either north end or south... More

We hiked from Little Dix Bay, about 1 1/2 miles each way. Hike was challenging and a great workout. The beach was great, snorkeling was amazing. Put this beach on your list of places to go. Beautiful!!!

Back in the BVI and made a stop at Savannah Bay again. It is such a perfect beach although it was a little more crowded this time (at least 12 people on the beach)! Hot, sunny and gorgeous!

Not as adventurous as the baths, but not as busy. Very mellow in fact. Perfect place to bum around on the beach, have a picnic lunch, swim, float, snorkel, build a sandcastle. Went here two or three times--very pretty and soft, white, sand and perfectly blue water.

We stayed on Virgin Gorda for a week and found ourselves at Savannah Bay 3 different days. The beach is pristine except for some litterbugs who can't carry their trash to the many garbage cans in the parking lot. While we were not the only people on the beach any of the 3 days we were there, you were never... More

We were dropped off by our resort for 2 hours with a picnic lunch. It was lovely and we had the beautiful beach to ourselves.

This was the highlight of our day on Virgin Gorda. One of the most beautiful beaches we've visited. There are actually ~3 beaches along the bay and we had an entire 'beach' to ourselves. The water was perfect and there was plenty of reef around form snorkeling. There are a few built-in shade spots (wooden umbrellas) perched up on the... More

Snorkeling spot with abundance of sea life in fairly shallow waters. The beach does not offer a lot of protection from the sun. Must pay attention to avoid sunburn. Best time to visit are early morning of late afternoon. Just another VG natural beauty...

We visited Virgin Gorda in late May 2014 and found ourselves at Savannah Bay during most days. The beach is rather long and has find white powdery sand. The ocean bottom is a mix of sand and coral, which allows for both swimming and snorkeling. You can drive to the beach and it's easy to find. Most days we were... More

This beach is definitely one of the best beaches for anyone wanting to swim, snorkel, walk the beach or just relax in the shade. We just returned from 10 days on the island and spent the last 4 days driving to this beach. Our family even had a 3 month old baby so we took a few sheets to tie... More
