Beautiful spot, but crowded. We were on a private boat charter and loved the spot, but didn't stay long due to the crowds. The entire area and beach is very beautiful. The Soggy Dollar keeps it hopping.

This is a beautiful beach and bay. Lovely clear blue water. But the day we were there, lots of boats were anchored close to the beach. So that made swimming and snorkeling difficult. Otherwise, it's a nice spot. No one seemed to be renting beach umbrellas, so we had to make do with palm tree shade, which isn't ideal if... More

I couldn't believe the color of the water at White Bay - just AMAZING! Crystal clear, aqua blue, very nice beach as well. Great place to spend the day.

This is a very nice clean beach. Sailboats come in for day trips to this bay, so it may be a little busy from 11:00 till 4:00. then it gets very quiet. Good Eats at all of the establishments on this beach. Have a painkiller drink, kick back and enjoy.

White Bay is just drop dead gorgeous, with very clean white sand and beautiful water. However, do NOT let anyone tell you that the snorkeling is good here. There's really very little to see. With that caveat, just go and enjoy.

As pretty a beach as you'll find in the BVI. Home of Soggy Dollar Bar where "Pain Killers" (4 parts pineapple juice, 2 or 3 or 4 parts Pussers rum, 1 part Coco Lopez, 1 part orange juice, plus liberal sprinkling of fresh shaved nutmeg) were first created.

As others have said soggy dollar can be busy but there are other beach bars to have a wonderful lunch. We like One Love and love to lounge at Ivans.

One of the best beaches we visited on BVI. White sand, clean wather, fantastic bars and easy to park your boat
