The inviting beaches in the British Virgin Islands are boasted as some of the most anticipated tourist sites that you'll find on the islands.
If you or your group are big beach fans, Sugar Mill Hotel is set in the perfect location for you. This property is situated on the water, so visitors can spend every day in the sun if they so desire. This particular site is not located within the more populated parts of the Virgin Islands, which means those visiting this particular area will often find themselves alone on the beach, providing them with the opportunity to find a peaceful spot to soak in some sun.
Of course, since Sugar Mill Hotel was built directly on Apple Bay, sun bathing is a popular pastime 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 some variety, the following options each offer something a little different.
