Owner description: Virgin Gorda's loveliest beach is a long strand of powdery white coastline lapped by placid waters.

This is the beach to come to if you want to sun bathe, relax, and enjoy gorgeous clear waters. Its what you see out of magazines. One of my top 3 beaches.

There is a look out point at the top of the hill coming from Spanish town. From there go down the hill and on your left there will be a dirt road. Don't worry its a bit bumpy but even a car can easily make the 1/4 trek. This will lead you right to the beachfront.

We went twice, each time only 2 or 3 other couples were there. Granted we went in early August which was there off season. Bring a gopro with a clear case and you'll be amazing at the exotic fish you'll see swimming around. I saw some people snorkling but not sure if this is the ideal spot for it. There are some spots for shade. And even a BBQ pit. Simply a gorgeous beach to relax and forget about it all. Bring your own drinks, food etc, there are no facilities near by.

I made a little video from my Cell Phone. Cut and paste into your browser and enjoy.

Can drive right up to beach, beautiful wide beach. You can walk out 20 yards and see the wonderful ocean floor. Lots of rocks and coral with all the colors, you can float for hours plus nice shady spots to sit on beach.

We had this beach to ourselves the day we were there. It was so beautiful and relaxing. Super soft sand and crystal clear water. It was a great day!

Wide white sand beach with azure waters and excellent snorkeling. So wide it couldn't really get crowded. And lots of shade :-)

Savannah Bay I am sure is a great beach and Snorkel area. However, the day we visited it just wasn't up to par with the others we visited.
First off, there was a tour group from Dive BVI snorkeling There. There must have been 75 people all out in the water.
It was extremely windy, so the sand wasn't to pleasant.
It is a beautiful beach, and worth seeing, but we found Spring Bay and Little Trunk Bay near our Villa to be much more peaceful and less crowded.
