Best beach on the island in my opinion. Long, sandy, plenty of shady nooks to lay out in. Had the beach to ourselves all morning. However, keep in mind that while you are alone on the beach there is an overlook from the road above...More

Just can't beat Virgin Gorda beaches. This was just another gem that we visited on our BVI trip! Loved it! Would need to bring your own chairs and umbrella or shade - nothing set up to use or available for rent. No problem for us...More
