Beach At Long Bay Very Rough????

We are a family of 5 that will be staying at LBBR in July 2006. Have been reading that the water at LBBR is very rough, too rough to swim in. Is that true? Is the water always rough? Are there times of the year when it is calmer??? We go to the caribbean every year and look forward to a nice beach at the resort. This could be a big dissapointment. Any info would help. Thanks.

The water in July should be calm at Long Bay. The water is usually rough in the winter months, not in summer. Be sure to go to Smuggler's Cove just down the road, beautiful beach.

I don't think they have a shuttle, but you could walk to Smuggler's from LBBR (although it's a bit of a hike!). I would strongly suggest renting a vehicle for your stay, There is alot to see on Tortola, and very little will be in easy walking distance from Long Bay. Your kids will probably like the restaurants on Cane Garden Bay, and the Jolly Roger at Soper's Hole. Make sure you take them out to Trellis Bay (by the airport)where there are some fun places like De Loose Mongoose, the Cyber Cafe and a wonderful art & craft center.
