“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

Fantastic beach secluled with fantastic swimming. It is a bit of a rough road to get there but well worth the effort. There is food and drink and on the Sunday a steel drum band which made our afternoon.

“best beach on Tortola”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

beautiful stretch of sand, plenty of shade. snorkeling here almost as good as St John's. we saw schools of doctor/surgeon fish, and plenty of tangs, parrotfish, some banded and four eye butterfly flush, and some clowns (not memo colored) among a bunch of grunts and jacks. water is 12-20 feet deep, although shallower in places near the shore. easy to get to if you're used to Caribbean driving (i.e., no named roads, ruts and potholes). nowhere near as crowded as Cane Garden. as noted by others vendors selling drinks ($4-6 for beer/mixed drinks) and food (at least two grills going when we were there). and you can rent chairs/lounges.

A little tricky to find, but worth the search. There are vendors on the beach selling drinks and food. I had the best jerk chicken from one of the ladies on the beach. The swimming was beautiful.
