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.

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

Well worth the bit longer ride from pier. Mile long beach of white sand is one of the nicest we ever visited. A few dollars got us two nice lounge chairs, use of excellent bathroom and wash down shower. Suggest bringing water shoes as entry to ocean a bit rocky, but once past that perfect.😎

It is just like the name suggests, it is a LOOOONG beach. The water was warm, clear, beautiful. The sand was white and nice. Plenty of chairs around (we were afforded them at no cost due to our excursion package - not sure if you normally have to pay for them). Not much shade, but if you get there early... More

This as a beautiful beach for walking. We were there during a stormy time. Undertow was dangerous. Waves were beautiful.
