This beach is very nice to look at, but very dangerous to swim in. So go only if you do not intend to swim. There are currents and I would not recommend it. Stay in the shallow end if you want to cool down. Take pictures tough. It is well worth it. The scenery is very nice

One of Virgin Gorda's most beautiful beaches! We loved the ease of parking and walking to an almost secluded beach with white sand, crystal clear water and absolutely stunning scenery. The snorkeling was also fantastic!! Bring a cooler of beer and rest on the beach watching the yachts come and go all day!

we did the savannah trail to the beach, the trail is testy at times, but so worth it! the beach was empty, maybe only one other couple on it. went on for what seemed like miles, amazing turquoise water and the softest sand.

We were the only 4 people on this beach for the entire 5 hours we were there. Great snorkeling also.

Wind was fierce and sign warned of all sorts of rip tides, undertow, etc. So we didn't swim. Not much shade either so we didn't stay long. Lots of hungry chickens got our lunch leftovers. It's a gorgeous beach but if you want to swim in July, I'd pick a beach closer to the baths.

We enjoyed this beach very much! The wind was fierce and blew sand in our face so we didn't stay long. The water was amazingly clear and blue! It's worth a visit for sure!

We live in Florida. We travel the Caribbean. This beach has an amazing combination of what makes a beach perfect. The sand is white and soft. The crowds are non-existent. We went today, a holiday, and there were MAYBE 20 people. Two days ago? Friday? Two people. The snorkeling right off the beach may "seem" like a dead reef...very shallow... More

There are tons of good beaches on the BVI, and Savannah Bay is definitely one of them. It's quieter than some of the other ones because there is not much of a reef here and there isn't much in the way of facilities. If you're looking for a quiet beach on which to gather sun and finish your book, this... More

We hiked from Little Dix and ended up here. What a beautiful beach with crystal clear, calm water! I wished I had worn my bathing suit as it was so inviting looking. This is a public beach, but there were hardly any people on it when we visited mid-morning.
