Beaches in Road Town

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

There are several beaches to consider visiting, although all of them are found nearby. Snorkeling is available at some of these beaches, for people who enjoy the underwater scene. Click on each beach name for detailed information about that part of the coast.

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.

Another 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: 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.
