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.

“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Went on the open tour bus and ended up at cane garden beach. The beach is lovely, the sea was very calm and inviting. Plenty of sunbeds and shades. Fun to watch the pelicans diving for fish.

“Great Beach”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Cane Garden Bay offers a beautiful beach, along with several beachfront bars and restaurants. There's no need to go anywhere else when you're staying in CGB.

“Garden doesn't do it justice”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Cane Garden Bay was more than just a sweet, blossoming by the sea. It was a slice of storybook heaven for anyone who has even the slightest love for sand, sun and peaceful fun. there is a special energy to this cove and the locals are half the reason it remains so special - keeping the vibes relaxing, but never sacrificing the service. I, literally, had the time of my life.

I do wish they limited weekend tourist capacity for the beaches (I fear the environmental impact), but otherwise the attendance is just the right amount.

“another fabulous beach!”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

very active, great for surfing, swimming everything. Lots of things to do. Rentals for just about everything to do with the water. Fabulous for long walks on the beach and sun tanning. Don't forget to get your sample of rum from the Callwood Distilery, and then by a bottle of the "Horny Rum" it's yummy.

“Great sunsets and beach bars.”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We spent four days here on our second visit to this area of Tortola. If you are going to Tortola don't miss staying a couple of nights in Cane Garden Bay. Compare it to a bigger and busier version of White Bay on Jost Van Dyke. The lodging consists of family owned small hotels both on and looking down on the beach from the hills. A good selection of reasonably priced beach front restaurants and bars line the 1/4 mile or so of beach. Sunsets are not to be missed.
