Owner description: Centrally located on Tortola's north side, this is probably the busiest beach since its beauty is often compared to Magen's Bay on St. Thomas.

“Favorite Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I have been to CGB almost every time I have been to Tortola! The environment is fun and the beaches are beautiful! The view is to die for. Don't forget to jump in off the dock at Sailor's rest. Great places to eat too.

“Beautiful fun spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

It is beautiful there but there are many people, so a good spot if you want to be around people and music. Not a good spot if you want solitude and quiet. We had dinner at Myett's there - it was delicious but slow service. Unfortunately many other places were closed for holiday or season. Lots of boats there if that's what you like.

“Possibly the best bay around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

If you ever visit the BVIs you must visit Cane Garden Bay, which amazingly, is unspoilt. Most arrive by yacht but those of us who drove there via the road from Roadtown will always remember that road - truly different.

“Shame about the cruise ship passengers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Good place to go off season. Between November and April the beach is inundated with cruise ship passengers, so if you want to swim and have some space to relax it's not the place for you. During the quieter time of the year CCB returns to it's "old self" and a decent cocktail may be obtained from Myett's bar and restaurant on the beach. Regretfully, although the place still has a "laid back" feel, the original environment has been spoiled by the increasing onslaught of cruise line day trippers that pack the beach; think Benidorm 30 years ago!

“Nice non popularized spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Nice place to stop over. A few good small bars, nothing trendy but very friendly. Good store to provision and really nice people.
