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.

Long Bay Beach is a beautiful beach with multiple colorful shades of blue ocean. The ocean floor is a bit rocky at many spots and with fairly active waves can make it a bit difficult to swim. The west end of the beach is your best bet for swimming.

This beach is a treat. Depending on the conditions, one of the few places on the island where you can have three (sometimes 4) distinct sets of waves coming in. Mile long beach makes for a great place to take a walk. The only downside is that under the waves, it is rocky versus sand. So, water shoes are a... More

A lovely clean and quiet beach. Fantastic for all the family. Great beach, my children loved playing in the water and the sand was wonderful for my baby to play.

A cruise ship excursion took me here. This beach was quiet and clean. The water was clear and blue. Did not see chair rentals, food stalls or washroom. Overall it is a beautiful beach. Bring your snacks and drinks.

We've been going to Long Bay for ten years now and it always feels as though we're "home" when we arrive. What's not to like about a gorgeous mile long beach with barely a soul on it? You won't be disappointed by Long Bay.

We were on a Windstar cruise and spent one day in Tortola. Our cruise director had recommended Long Bay Beach due to its close proximity to the pier. The taxi ride there was fine and relatively quick. We arrived early (before 9:30) as we wanted a full day at the beach! We were ready to set up the chairs that... More

The beach was beautiful. Good for a nice long walk, relaxing in the sand or watching the kite surfers out in the water.

Accommodation (very few) are on the east side. Nice for swimming and boggie boarding. We had a very nice (but a... More

Gorgeous beach, a few bars , and enough space for all. Lovely to watch the pelicans and no hustlers on the beach.
