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 a large selection of beaches to consider visiting, although they are all found nearby. Snorkeling is available at several locations, for people who enjoy this relaxing pastime. Just click on individual beach names to get additional information concerning 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.

Another option for beach-goers to consider is Cooten Bay. Cooten Bay is ideal for surfing, as it provides exciting waves and is fairly unpopular. Located between Josiah's and Carot Bay, the area is surrounded by exciting hills and thick, green vegetation.

Lormer Bay: Access to the beach is difficult, particularly due to the island's steep hills and sharp turning paths. As such, the area is only recommended for the physically able.

The beaches nearby are shown in the following chart.
