Beautiful sandy beaches with calm waters to swim in, but with some nice reefs at the northern end of the beach to snorkel. We were the only couple there for the four+ hours we were there (& it was a Saturday!). A must see.

Excellent snorkeling here also. This is more protected and has many more coral reefs to explore. Not very busy and not a lot of shade

Was a great afternoon stop, long clean sand beach and water were beautiful. Some spots to snorkel but mostly dead reefs in and around.

Very few people, nice clean beach...great place to go. We had the entire place to ourselves. Bring your own towels, chairs and food.

If you like crowds and activity, don't come to Savannah beach. We've never seen more than 20 people at one time, and there have been times we were the only people here. Good snorkeling, thatch roof palapas, stunning views, peaceful.

My husband and I stayed in the second the last building at Little Dix Bay and were so happy to have this gorgeous hiking trail right outside our door. It's a lot of straight up and straight down and through the woods and then right at the end is Savannah Bay, a basically private beach with lots of coral. We... More

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?
