Owner description: Centrally located on Tortola's north side, this is probably the busiest beach since its beauty is often compared to Magen's Bay on St. Thomas.

A beautiful stretch of sand and great place to chill out for the afternoon. When we were there the beach was pretty quiet, no cruises were in that day. We enjoyed lunch and a few cocktails at one of the bars and enjoyed watching a surfer rip up the waves. My only compliant was the ridiculously priced taxi ride, $24 each way. This is a set price and for that reason we won't be going again the next time we're in Road Town. The beach itself still gets a 4/5!

Cane Garden Bay is at it's finest when the ship crowd has dwindled in the later afternoon. Great place to grab a rum punch (or a Carib) and just kick back and watch the sun go down. Always a good spot to make some new friends (such as D with the metal detector) and just enjoy Tortola's natural beauty! Word is the BVI Music Fest in May is a good time.. so we may be going back sooner than later to this amazing beach!

This beach is amazing! Stunning, breathtaking scenery, powdery soft sand and warm water. The waves arn't strong and you can rest under natural shade if you wish. No charge to enter the beach but they do charge if you wish to use a lounger and umbrella. I would definitely recommend this place if you are in Tortola!

Cane garden bay is a nice sandy beach with several beach front shops and bars with deals such as two beers for $5. The majority of the beach is covered in sun loungers and chairs which do require hire. Prices are around $5 per sun lounger. The sea depth is gently sloping so is suitable for children and remains at a constant depth quite a way out. While we were there we didnt see any life guards so adults need to keep an eye on their children.

Cane Garden Bay is a beautiful place, but it gets very crowd when the cruise ship are in town. That's why I marked it average. It does have bars on the beach, if you want to grab lunch or a drink.
