“See Long Bay from above.”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Most visitors come to Long Bay by sailboat, staying at the Long Bay Marina. While there, go up to the nearby mountain for the overlook view of the bay.

“Quiet beach with good snorkelling”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Long Bay is a lovely beach. If you walk to the far end from the car park there is some great snorkelling on the edges of the reef. Seeing a small shoal of cuttlefish made our holiday, but LOTs of fish and the coral is mostly good here unlike other areas of reef where it is dying away. We did not have the beach to ourselves as there were a few boats moored here but still peaceful and beautiful. There are no facilities here, so come prepared.

“Another excellent private beach”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Wow so beautiful here, great snorkeling, so private. Didn't see another person the whole time we were here. Excellent beachcombing and oh so peaceful. Saw an excellent variety of fish including trumpetfish, also great coral formations. Nice view of the Dogs and the northwest tip of Virgin Gorda. After leaving here continue the drive up around the north side of the island and stop at Hog Heaven for a drink and lunch. Wish I was there right now!!
