Dotted with beach bars and lounge chairs, and backed by resorts, the beaches of Cane Garden Bay are everything you might expect to find on a beach in the British Virgin Islands.  The sands are fine in grain and blindingly white, while the waters that wash ashore are generally calm and so blue it is hard to believe the color is real.

Pick Your Ideal Beach

There are several beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Click on the name of the beach to read a detailed article concerning that part of the coast.

Cane Garden Bay

Lormer Bay: Located on the northern coast of Tortola, Lormer Bay features a thin strip of sand surrounded by the island's famous green hills. Located in between Shark and Cooper Bay, the area is largely vacant.

A second place worth considering is Apple Bay. The beach at Apple Bay has been nicknamed the "Surfing Beach" so, if you're in search of the perfect wave this is the destination for you. During most of the year the waves are only around five to six feet.

Nanny Cay: Nanny Cay Beach is on the tip of a peninsula on the south side of Tortola. The Nanny Cay Resort dominates the peninsula and restricts access to the beach.

The chart below provides some key facts concerning the beaches found in and around the area.
