Most people consider Tortola to have the quintessential Caribbean beaches. All feature wide, soft shores of white sands, crystalline waters of various blue hues and little pollution, thatch-roofed huts that serve as beach bars, and palm trees lining the shore, yet each has its own presence. If you're interested in surfing and other high-intensity watersports try the beaches of the north shore, yet those who want to do little more than swim and sun will be satisfied no matter which beach they choose.
You will discover a large selection of beaches to visit on the island. Whether you prefer people watching, or you prefer a quieter stretch of sand, you should be able to find just the right beach. For more information concerning any one of these beaches just click on the names of the ones you want to know more about.
A nice beach with snorkeling is Smuggler's Cove. Smuggler's Cove is a secluded beach on Tortola, but is easily accessible by car. The crescent-shaped beach has sugary white sand and the water is stunningly blue.
Another good option for snorkeling fans is Green Cay Beach. This is a lovely beach boasting soft white sand, gentle waters and a sandbar.
Cane Garden Bay: Great local dining and colorful entertainment can easily be found along the shores of Cane Garden Bay. Live music wafts across the bay every night for everyone to enjoy.
