We visited White Bay by catamaran. We spent the day on the beach and visited the famous Soggy Dollar beach bar where the must try drink is their “painkiller” which they are credited with being the original creators. There’s plenty to do walking along the...More

Strongly recommend spending some time on this beach during your BVI stay. Snorkeling was not terrific - apparently I shouldn't have listen to our driver. Go to Gertrudes for drinks (make your own) and for the great food. Mahi Mahi fish sandwich was TERRIFIC!

Perfect calm waters on a gorgeous white sand beach line with 5 cool beach bars! It doesn't get any better than that. That's why boaters are here daily! We wished we could have stayed another day. Loved it!

Beautiful beach! Beautiful water. Such a deep turquois color. Home of the soggy dollar so you want to make sure you visit this place.

White sugary sand. The entire beach lined with amazing beach bars. What more could you want other than more time and money to go back?

There is something therapeutic about arriving by boat to white bay and jumping in the water to get to the beach. Love Hendo’s and Soggy.

Not sure if I'm interpreting "cruising to Tortola" correctly, but if you're staying on St. Thomas, I'd use See and Ski-theyre awesome! If you're on/staying on Tortola going to Foxy's I would use their service as the other... More

I think you can get right up on the beach down a couple hundred yards.
