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.

Great beach.

We were on a cruise. Got a mini bus to this beach. Reasonable fare, reasonable lounger/umbrella hire. Beautiful setting.

Cane Garden Bay is by far the best beach on Tortola but be wary of the cruise ship schedule [check BVI Port Auth.] which can ruin the whole experience. Fun bars, great swim beach, good food and great views.

Great beach with lots of eating/drinking choices. Great place to relax, need to rent a lounging chair, to people watch and swim.

Stopped in Tortola as part of cruise. We caught a shared minibus outside port gates. $8 each. Took about 15 mins. Up some very steep hills and bends. The beach is indeed crowded but there are plenty of sun beds and parasols. Beautiful pale sands and warm blue sea. Lots of bars for places to eat and drink. We had... More

Wonderful sandy white beaches with many food and bar options. Flea market a few days of the week lets you explore local flavor without the hassle.

We typically take a cruise every winter to the Caribbean to get out of the cold for a week. Consequently, we have been to a lot of beaches throughout the Caribbean. On this trip, we went to Cane Garden Bay. Our previous favorite Caribbean beach was Megan Bay in USVI, but Cane Garden is a bit nicer. Picturesque views, ample... More

This is a hot tourist spot, so it can become crowded. On the other hand, it has a stunning view, not to mention quick access to several beach bars and restaurants. Having relocated here, I would still say this is one of my favorite beaches on the island.

Wife and I took a cab from cruise port to beach. Rented a chair for 5 dollars. There was small local huts selling beer and cocktails at very reasonable prices. A small markrt area was also available upon arrival selling souvenirs. The sand water and beach were beautiful, surrounded by large hills and palm trees. The mixture of people was... More
