gorgeous beach with soft white sand and a nice wave. Safe for the kids, surf lessons from the man Steve available if you need them. You feel safe on this beach to leave your stuff on the beach if you take a walk, and your car is safe in the parking lot. The first little food shack when you enter... More

A little hard to get to (understatement), but a really beautiful beach. Lots of surfing here, beautiful water.

When we found this secluded beach we felt like it was our own little paradise. The cute funky bar served food but we didn't eat there. They are in the process of remodeling and now has working rest rooms.

We took a 20 minute cab ride here from the cruise terminal. Great location - stunning view and a nearly-private beach. Surf boards and lessons available, a small bar with rentable lounge chairs and decent food. A great day in paradise.

We were there with surf, braking a but but worked well by locals. Food and toilets here. Easy service. The beach is superb. The views spectacular. Enclosed by rocks and gentle shelve. Flags tell you what conditions exist. Well worth making the trip to here.

My husband and I visited Tortola for his grandfather's funeral. It was a very sad time but when we went to the beach it helped us relax a bit and take our minds off of the reason we were there. The water is very clear and we were able to see fishes swimming beside us. One thing that I've never... More

One of the most beautiful spots I've seen in Tortola. Pristine beach with little to no people there. Great snack bar with drinks and lunch available. Perfect spot!
