If there is a cruise ship docked on Tortola, you can bet the beaches of Road Town are going to be overrun by cruisers looking to experience the one-of-a-kind beaches of this town.  Cane Garden Bay, a ten minute drive across the island, is actually often hardest hit, but those who prefer to stay close to the cruise ship will find local beaches to be equally as pleasurable. 

The Area's Beaches

You'll discover a large selection of beaches to choose from, although they are all found in neighboring areas. Snorkeling is an option at some of these beaches, for vacationers who are so inclined. Click on each beach name for a detailed review of that particular stretch of sand.

Rogues Bay: Rogues Bay has patches of velvet white sand between rock formations that taper off into the water. It has an air of seclusion.

A second option worth considering is Cooten Bay. Cooten Bay, located on the northern coast of Tortola, offers visitors the perfect surf area. The beach is a thin strip, mostly inaccessible by land, with rough sand and a large amount of shrubbery.

Lormer Bay: Lormer Bay is situated in between Shark and Cooper Bay on the northern coast of the island. The island's steep green hills provide the backdrop, while a small strip of sand offer an area to rest.

The beaches nearby can be seen right below.
