This was the nicest private beach I went to in BVI. The best snorkeling we had all week and we took a boat tour. If you're in Long Bay, this beach is a must for a day. Bring your cooler, chairs and snorkel gear.

It may be a rough road to get there but it is worth it! Have visited twice and Smugglers is always our favorite beach. And, Nigel's Boom Boom Beach bar will be reopening after Irma/Maria.

Much quieter beach with nice sand but not easy to get to in a small compact car. Better to have a truck or have a taxi take you if you like your car.

Don't know if you got an answer on this or not. In terms of distance, it's not that far from the cruise port. In terms of the road conditions and logistics, I would allow 45 minutes to and from. RICH
