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.

we avoided this beach during the day because of the 1000's of tourists on cruise boats. it's too bad because it's a very nice beach that i would have loved to hang out at during the day. we went at night, tho, and had a blast with all the live music and happy hours. will definitely go back.

Spent 4 hours relaxing and swimming at the beautiful Cane Garden Bay Beach. Got there early (9:30) and had our pick of chairs and locations. Water was clear and warm, beach was clean and fine. Drink specials of either a rum punch or pain killer were two for $6 and very good. My husband took a short walk from the beach to the Cane Garden Rum Factory where he sampled then bought some great rum to bring home. Taxi ride from the ship to the beach was $8 per person each way but worth it. We had been to this location15 or 16 years ago and were eager to return. It was as great as we had remembered it.

Cane Garden Bay has grown in leaps and bounds in the past 20 years. It is still a beautiful beach...very long and great for walking. Many restaurants and tiny shops, but still low key. Cleanliness is an issue when many boats are there or the buses come with the cruise ship people, but I think perhaps Tortola is getting a handle on the situation..maybe. Nevertheless, I still like going there, especially when Quito and the Edge are playing

Great beach and bay, if a little crowded, maybe because of the cruise ship in port. There are plenty of places to buy a drink or something to eat and sunbeds are not too expensive. Wish we had the benefit of advice from the previous reviewer and taken a taxi and not an excursion as it would have allowed us more time here. The waves were huge and the surf came crashing down over unwary beach walkers. Pelicans quite tame!

Excellent beautiful beach with many GOOD bars and restaurants. If on a cruise do not pay for the tour, simply leave the ship and catch a taxi just past the pier (if you catch one on the pier they will wait till the van fills up). Costs only $6.00 per person each way and it is an adventurist ride up and over the mountain. The driver will wait for you and return you to the pier at the agreed upon time.
