Quite often, visitors have decided to visit British Virgin Islands knowing that they'll get to see the spectacular beaches that the Caribbean is so proud of.
If all you can think about is the beach, Sebastian's on the Beach is the right spot for you. This site is located along the shore, so vacationers can spend as much time as they like soaking up the sun if they so desire. This particular site is hidden away from the Virgin Islands' more crowded areas, which means those visiting this particular area may often have these stretches of sand to themselves, giving them the chance to find a peaceful spot to soak in some sun.
Naturally, since Sebastian's on the Beach was built directly on Apple Bay, spending time at the shore is one of the main attractions here. The beach at Apple Bay has been nicknamed the "Surfing Beach" so, if you're in search of the perfect wave this is the destination for you. During most of the year the waves are only around five to six feet. For travelers who want to venture farther away, the following options each offer something a little different.

Although the building is historical in nature, it is best to just drive by for an outside view, because Smith's Gore Real Estate is now operating from within.
