Our first time here, the road was crazy steep, we missed the u-turn and ended up in Road town. But we liked the snorkeling, so we came back every day, and eventually got used to the crazy drive down into this bay. Snorkeling was good along the left side rocks and in the middle. The sand was soft. The facilities... More

This was our choice to repeat of all the snorkeling bays in Tortola! Clear calm water, snorkel the left and middle - had the bay basically to ourselves both days - Nicole's Beach Bar on the premises - usually not open when we arrived but always available when we were ready to leave - did not get food or drink

Really calm, soft sand, no rocks. Fish everwhere. But DANG what a steep incline drive to get there! Nicole's on the beach for drinks and food.

If you are looking for a relaxing, tropical paradise, Brewers Bay is the ideal spot. The beach is gorgeous and usually quiet with not many guests. We found a great spot to snorkel and saw numerous tropical fish. The roosters crowing added definite charm to the beach experience. The bathroom was not to my standards, but the beach is definitely... More

If you're looking for a special spot with calm, clear waters that you can snorkel, swim or float in, this is your place. About a 20 min drive from the port and no entrance fee. The taxi ride there was nice; our driver, Dennis, was fantastic! He stopped along the way so I could take pictures of the beautiful picturesque... More

If you want to skip out on the crowded beach this is the way to go. We were on a cruise, so from the port it is maybe a 15 minute drive. However, the time flies is a small "private" beach. I say "private" beach because not many people wanted to go to this beach. I noticed as the drivers... More

Beautiful beach. You can do some good snorkeling from shore as well just Keep closer to the hillside at the entrance to see all sorts of sea life. But be careful of some shallow areas. This place is amazing!

Beautiful secluded beach, a hidden gem for sure. We were one of 3 families on the beach the whole afternoon. Great for kids. Very shallow and sandy bottom (not rocky). Nicole's beach bar at one end (although we didn't get to eat here due to the cook not showing up to his shift).

This is the nicest beach I have ever had the pleasure to walk on. Brewers Bay dethrones Roatan's West End on the JohnnyTram top beach list.

Steep paved road getting down to the beach, but well worth it. Snorkeling was very good by the rocks on the west side of the beach - the only better snorkeling we found around Tortola, required a boat. Being somewhat secluded, there were not many people at the beach. Very pretty bay!
