This is the beach that you dream about. It is perfection. Pretty boats, clear water, white sand and great bars! Listen to the Kenny Chesney song "Somewhere In The Sun" and you will begin to get a feel for it.

Long white beach, white sandy anchorage, Soggy Dollar Bar and Ivan's No Stress Bar retain a secluded tropical environment.

By far one of my favorite places to visit in the BVI. I like to spend at least two days between White Bay and Great Harbour. Yost is simply the best of the BVI.

Makes the list for greatest Caribbean beaches. Busy with boaters but we went on a Sunday so would try weekday next time. A few beach bars, lots of boating families, a great place to spend a few hours.

White Bay beach is so nice. The sand is that coarse sand that feels so good between the toes. The gentle ocean waves are a great place to set your chair and enjoy a PainKiller.... We were on a mooring ball in the next bay over, Great Harbor, and rode a taxi over.

This place is stunningly beautiful. The sand is soft, the reef is very swimmable with lots of sea creatures. The bar's are a benefit.

White Bay is the home of the Soggy Dollar Bar, One Love and a few other drinking and eating establishments. There is no pier so everyone swims to shore from their boat.
