Nearby Beaches

Needless to say, since Maria Hotel by the Sea is located right on Tiny Trunk Bay, laying out in the sun is popular with guests staying at this property. Trunk Bay, located on the western shore of Tortola, is a highly secluded beach surrounded by a palm grove and extensive tropical foliage. With little direct access beyond a footpath along the coast, the beach is rarely populated, so the soft sands and beautiful calm waters will be a private treat.
