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.

Cane Garden bay is a great bay; nice white beach, lots of restaurants and bars and lots of mooring balls. During day time the restaurants look like they could need soma paint. At night, when all is lit and you have music all around, it shows its more romantic face. When you pick up a mooringball here, beware of the N/E winds thatcauses a swell that makes your night really uncomfortable. If ou are here and swell is coming in and it is still not too late to leave, try little harbour on the other side of the channel.....!

This was definitely one of favorite beachs in the Virgin Islands. Waves were very high the day we were there but still loved it. If you don't like touristy or commercialized stay away. But we don't mind if its a beautiful beach and setting like this was. Even a rum factory on site.

We started out getting on an open air bus for a drive around the island, getting some island info, which was kind of okay because they didn't show any old forts, etc. just stops to take beautiful pictures of the surrounding islands. This island has a lot of STEEP hills, but the driver seemed to have no problem driving up them. We finally stopped at Cane Bay to swim. You are escorted to the beach where there is a lady offering to rent beach chairs for five dollars, which I recommend because the water comes up very close to the beach sand if you were to sit on a blanket or towel. The white sand is absolutely beautiful and the water warm and clean. There is a bar and a couple of gift shops. When you are waiting for the bus make sure that you walk over to the man and woman making beautiful items out of glass. They collect discarded bottles from around the island and recycle them by melting them down in an old furnace type oven. They do demonstrations of how to create these beautiful glass items. This is one of my favorite islands!

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.

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.
