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.

“A Favorite for beach and dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Lots of restaurants, little gift boutiques, local arts, crafts tucked back behind the beach area. This was a favorite of the teenagers that were with us, they strolled the beach, picked up lots of cool shells, played in the sand and surf, etc. We moored here for the day / night and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, used one of the restaurant's lounge chairs and had a few pain killers...it was a fun day for everyone!

“Best place in BVI, and the world !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

If there is anyplace I would want to go back to visit, it would be CGB. Our visit was 1 of 13 stops in the BVI by our privately chartered boat, and this was our favorite. A beautiful paradise crescent white sand beach gave this spot a special feeling of peace and beauty. Upon arriving on shore we found a special little village w little beach bars, a grocery store, police station, post office, and a few speciality shops, even a hair stylist shop. (Just like Mayberry America, except for the beach bars). It had everything needed in a village, without being a tourist trap. In walking the island, we found a unique old Rum distillery, a grave yard and lots of chickens in the road. The thought of living here forever entered my mind many times, before an involuntary departure. I often reflect on our trip to BVI, with Cane Garden Bay as my favorite! Just like the paradise picture on front of a Caribbean travel magazine !

“Tourist Trap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Cane Garden Bay is probably the busiest beach on Tortola. Tons of restaurants, beach bars, etc here. The beach itself is nice, but tends to be pretty crowded. I hear that a lot of cruise ships stop in through here, so that probably explains it. If you want to see a beautiful beach, they are plentiful on Tortola; consider Brewers Bay instead, which is absolutely gorgeous and much quieter. On the other hand, if you want to get drinks and party with friends amongst a sea of beach chairs and tourists, this is probably a better fit.
