We hiked to savannah bay via the trail starting at the Little Dix. It took us (my mum and I) about 35-40mins, and we even saw a snake along the way! (harmless of course) The hike provided an amazing opportunity to view the beach from atop (we were at approx 250f) and trust me, it was well worth the effort.... More

Just a mile from town is this long strand of beautiful sand, good snorkelling and no development. What a find!

If you are looking to go someplace that the Cruise ship crowds are not then this beach is for you. Not very far out of Spanish Town with plenty of parking right off the paved road. No facilities as others have mentioned but that's part of the appeal! Take some food and a book and enjoy. The reef is right... More

We sought out this beach hoping for something really special compared with elsewhere on the island. It was nice, and had a locals vibe to it (some small food vendors at the edge of the beach, etc.) but was nothing special for the area. Which is not to say it isn't gorgeous; what on Virgin Gorda isn't?

Great relatively quiet beach with some bigger waves. Relatively long beach end to end, great for walking.

Simply a beautiful beach, No facilities, so bring what you need and let the Caribbean wash over you. I miss it.

Loved this beach, nice white sand and water was so pretty and clear. Although to windy and rough to snorkel, we had a blast playing in the waves. As with most of the beaches here, there was hardly any people there, almost like going to your own private beach.

I had reviewed previous comments to visit this Beach when I was in Virgin Gorda, so I did after walking to Gorda Peak. The snorkeling wasn't that great when I was there but it may have been because it was windy. That being said, because of the wind, there was so much very fine sand blowing non-stop. It wasn't as...

Great beach, and on a calm day with clear waters the snorkeling is terrific. We sighted many varieties of coral, fish, and a couple of sea turtles. Walk from the sandy beach and you don't have to go far before the underwater sights entice you.

we visited this beach on two separate days. The first was windy and a lot of waves, undertow was strong. Water was cloudy, visibility poor. No snorkeling on that day. Second day waves had calmed down significantly. Got there at 9am and we were alone. Beautiful sand, calm waves and great fun. Definitely a hidden gem, but focus on off... More
