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.

Very beautiful bay with virtually no waves and beautiful white sand. Lots of places for a drink & burger. Rhymer's is our favorite. Second time here this trip. The bay just lacks up scale accommodations. Great place to spend the day.

Tortola was a day visit on a cruise stop. Open sided taxi buses were well organised as you came off the boat. We chose the one to Cane Garden which was $16 pp return. Plenty of facilities on the beach at reasonable prices. The drive itself up over the mountains was a pleasant experience in itself. Good choice for a... More

Cane Garden Bay has a great beach! The powdery white sand extends out easily 20-30 meters from the shore still at only neck depth. There is a nicely spaced mooring field, yet room for anchoring. Ashore, along the beach there are a variety of restaurants, many offering beach lounge chairs and umbrellas to their customers, and free WIFI. There are... More

We walked over the Cane Garden Bay after visiting Callwood Distillery. It was quite beautiful and clean and the open beach bars seemed well-cared for and friendly but the area overall seems a little run down. The public bathrooms are open but no running water. There are people hanging around trying to get you to rent beach chairs but then... More

The water is clear and the swimming is easy in this very calm and clear bay. We stayed a week and loved it. There are several bars/restaurants to choose from. It gets crazy when the cruise ships comes into Road Town and they bus everyone over but even then you have a choice of being in the midst of the... More

We stayed at the Cane Garden Beach House at the end of the beach. The water is beautiful. There are many great restaurants and bars. Boats sail in and out daily. A perfect place.

We came here a few times while in Tortolla. The beach is mostly uncrowded early in the morning. There is good public parking near Myett's in the center of town. Several beach bars and restaurants to choose from we like Quito's the best - good music, good food, good pizza, nice people. This beach can be crowded and very lively.

Cane Garden Bay! You have won my heart. Our ship docked at 7am and we got off the boat at 9am, grabbed one of the open air jeeps and made our way to the beach. I had no idea what to expect as I didn't really research this beach much (we went based off a recommendation of a family member).... More
