“Great surfing beach on Tortola”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This beach has a great set up. A decent amount of sand for the sun worshipers, nice waves that seemed to be the only decent accessible ones on the island (unless your into 4x4ing down rubble cliff like roads) & two nice little restaurants. You can easily spend a day here & be quite comfortable, I certainly enjoyed my day of sun, fish & chips & a little Pina Colada treat as the sunset.

“Heaven on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

SOOO beautiful! Powder-white sand, turquoise water, curling waves crashing onto the rocks at either end of a picturesque crescent-shaped beach...friendly island beach-bar with perfect drinks & munchies. Area next to parking is less-than-lovely, but completely invisible from the beach itself.

“Beautiful Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Beach was absolutely stunning - and looked like a great place to surf as well. We were there in the morning and stopped to relax with a banana smoothie. Definitely stop at Naomi's for a banana smoothie - I wanted another one my entire trip - and am still thinking about it now.

“Beautiful !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Glad we visited this beach. Took a "hut" down the beach. Very few people on the beach. You could rent chairs, etc. Had some cold beers, honey strung chicken, and snorkeled. Current a little strong, but there were life guards around when we were there.

“Surf's up!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Josiah's Bay was once a real hidden treasure. Last I was there, there are a few restaurants, but it is still as close to natural and pristine as can be. A beautiful wide, long beach with great waves for bodysurfing. It is well worth the trip to find it!
