A perfect getaway for a day, this charming, half-mile strip of soft white sand is isolated and rarely visited since it is accessible only by a small dirt road.

Dont Expect Much but NICE

Pretty average in many ways for the Caribbean. Dont expect Much but Long Bay Beach Tortola is certainly quite NICE and Relaxing

We were visiting Tortola on a cruise and they canceled our excursion due to the high tide. We were speaking with another couple and told them we wanted to find a beautiful secluded, not crowed beach since I saw the bus loads being shuttled over to some of the more popular ones. She mentioned this beach to us so we... More

If you take water shoes, the place is great. Great views, beautiful looking water and scapes. The people running the hotel and restaurant did a great job with lunch. We were on a shore excursion with Disney a cruise Lines. The only thing no one told us was that the beach is sandy but the water is not. It was... More

This is a great place to walk on the beach or sit down for a bite to eat. It's not the best snorkeling area because the water tends to be a little rougher, but it's still nice water to go into. Make sure to bring a camera to take pictures.

First, to be clear... there are two Long Bay beaches in Tortola. Both are great and both deserted. One, next to the airport (actually on Beef Is) is the locals' choice; the other towards west end, with part occupied by the Long Bay resort. Ignoring the resort, the western end of this huge bay is paradise. The only commercialization is... More

Horrible experience. Old dirty rundown resort ran by dishonest corporation and people! The food was bad, the hotel did not want to book day sail and rental car. We would never go back!

Enjoyed a visit to this beautiful beach on our way to Smugglers Bay. Pretty quiet and a few nice restaurants to enjoy a breakfast, lunch or dinner. We didn't go snorkeling but it looked like the areas around the rocks would be a potentially good spot.

Well worth the drive to get here, and loved the fact that our private tour guide drove us to this private beach only few people there. Felt like our own family private beach all to ourselves. We also enjoyed a wonderful oceanfront lunch at one of the restaurants with beachfront views and Clean bathrooms too. 5 stars all the way.

Having read the reviews about this beautiful beach I just wanted to pass on some info in case people are worried about the "huge rocks"... Ok, so in front of the hotel the beach slopes into the water with no issues. Go to your left, in front of the bungalows and there are rocks and rock ledge, water shoes are... More

We took an excursion to this beach while on a Disney Cruise. The excursion took us for a 40 minute drive around the island before arriving at Long Bay Beach. Tortola has some pretty landscape and views but the drive around the island show the more poverty stricken truth of a lot of the Virgin Islands. We stopped at Long... More
