“great for snorkeling and sunning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

There's nowhere to get a drink or snack and there's some garbage left from the vendors who used to be there, but if you can look beyond that its a beautiful spot

“Got to see it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Just a paradise bay... some people said it was un safe, it is VERY safe and just georgous... You can snorle, fload in on the gentle ocean waves or bask on a gorgeous beach. There were 2 life guards that also acted as security guess... Local families come down to enjoy so a good place to mingle with happy locals - love it!

“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

We were so lucky, when we went we were the only ones on the beach. White sand, blue water and tranquility. When you see pictures of Tortola, this is the beach you see...with Sugar Hill in the background. Perfect.

Best beach I have ever seen! It does not get much better than this. Deserted no bars or cares- paradise.

“Just wow”

Get a SUV and learn to drive on the left hand side of the road. Trust me, it's worth it.
