The beach is about a quarter mile strand of white on the drake channel side of virgin gorda. There is no boat access, so you need a vehicle to get there. There are no facilities, unless you call a trashcan a facility. But bring a picnic and (maybe) feed the beautiful virgin gorda chickens. Snorking is apparently good. Don't go... More

Wow! This is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to. The water is so clear that we spent hours swimming and snorkeling here. Beware of two small negatives - there are spiky things in the vegetation along the beach which can stick in your clothes and beach towels as well as feet. There is also little... More

supposed to be great for snorkeling, but when we were there, it had just stormed, so i assume that is why it was quite disappointing. however, so beautiful and remote.

what a beautiful beach. You could walk way out and it was not too deep. We were the only ones on the beach most of the day. The sand was so white.

Just like in the movies, this long white beach is just a dream. There are trees to park under and also palapas to sit under if the sun gets too hot. You can walk for ages here and just gaze into the turquoise waters of more white sand or go snorkeling and have a look at the horse-shoe shaped coral... More

Savannah beach is about 1/2 mile long and has some of the most beautiful water around. On a calm day it is great snorkeling spot and even when it is a little rough out the swimming is still very good. There are virtually no people on this beach so if you want privacy for skinny-dipping, ( not really legal in... More

Gorgeous white sandy beach, very private and a fairly good coral reef in shallow water for snorkelers. Undeveloped and pristine, complete with a few chickens. Our favorite of the trip! No facilities.

Just gorgeous- not much else to say to describe this beach. Epic white sand, perfectly turquoise waters- it is truly out of this world. We camped out under a nice old palapa and made this our sanctuary on Virgin Gorda. The snorkeling is pretty cool here as well. We saw rays, a sea caterpillar (I'm sure there is a more... More

My husband and I spent a week on virgin gorda, As we were driving along I saw the beach from the road on the hill and said "I want to go there!" We found the dirt road and arrived and what I now know is Savannah Bay. The sand is just gorgeous, it was remote, and I thought I died... More

Savannah Bay is an unbelievably beautiful beach. If you enjoy hiking there is a trail that begins from the northwest end of the beach and leads to Little Dix Bay. The trail is difficult and about a mile in length. We use the trail in early October to access Little Dix Bay which is closed until late October. The snorkeling... More
