This beach is quiet with just a couple of tiny bars which offer sunbeds at $5 each, they are very tatty! Take a towel and you will be fine... Pelicans dive for fish among people paddling, an amazing sight to behold.Good for snorkeling too!

Brewers Bay is OK, they have loungers to rent for $5.00 each, you do have to drag it to where you want to be. No umbrellas, but some palm trees for shade. There is toilets, but you can't put any toilet paper in it, they have a trash can next to toliet to put the paper in. Gross! There is... More

Tortola is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. This beach was the highlight of our trip. We arrived early in the day on a taxi from our cruise ship. We were the first ones there for the day. It was a quiet restful place that doesn't get overrun with people because there is no wifi or... More

We took a taxi over here when we got off the cruise ship. This beach is very remote and very quiet. Maybe 30 people there. Absolute tranquility and peace. Wish the chairs were nicer, but this place was amazing. Hope to get to go back!

Got off the cruise ship and asked a taxi to take us to a quieter beach and ended up here. So glad we did because it was perfect, great sand, great waves for body surfing, cheap sunbeds (no umbrellas but shade is available) and little bars selling the local beer - what more could you want !!

We read about this place from trip advisor and decide to spend the cruise ship stop at this particular beach. 24$ taxi ride for 3 along the perilous roads, it will stay in our minds for months!! nice beach even with the waves, no chance to do snorkelling. good lunch at nicole's, not so overprice. might return if I had...

My group elected to take a cab down to Brewer's Bay after talking to one of the assistants at the British Virgin Islands tourism tent on the cruise ship pier. There is a white board at the tent that marks that cabs will cost $8 per person each way, so the drivers are unlikely to vary from that rate. It's... More

Although high waves this particular day, this place was paradise for us two families visiting during a cruise ship stop. Our kids, 8-11 years old, loved jumping in the waves, although we didn''t allow them to go further out. It took us a 20 minutes 75 dollar taxi trip to get there,( 2 families) but that was money well spent.... More

We were stopping off in Tortola on the Norwegian Escape and thanks to Trip Advisor I convinced our group to shed the paid excursions and cab it to Brewers Bay...We were not let down! It was $8 U.S. pp each way. The cabbies will come back for you if you give them a time, however there always seemed to be... More
