About
Centrally located on Tortola's north side, this is probably the busiest beach since its beauty is often compared to Magen's Bay on St. Thomas.

When doing our research on where to go in the Caribbean we liked what we saw and heard about the BVI. That was hard enough... but then we had to find where to go and where to stay while there. As many of you know,...More

Has all the amenities you’d need, restaurants, restrooms, sunbeds and parasols. Water clear and relatively calm. There’s still some construction going on and will be back to 5* soon I’m sure.

Affected by Hurricane Irma, the beach is back and looking great with beach chairs, beach bars, views of Jost Van Dyke - it was the perfect getaway from Road Harbor via a breathtaking road over the hills.

Im sure this Island has come a long way since last year but it still has a long way to go. This beach was overcrowded and trash service is not where it needs to be. It has the potential to be amazing as a beautiful...More

It is amazing to see how much has been done in basically a year since the hurricane. Still much construction going on but many businesses are open, and the water is great.

It was great to be back in one of our favorite places in all the world! Yes, there is still some evidence of damage and rebuilding happening but this doesn’t change the view from the beach— awe-inspiring sunsets and the prettiest blue water you’ll ever...More

spend a day or two at Cane Garden. Paddle Board, swim, etc - but avoid the days when cruise ships come in - they bus people there by the hundreds

THis is a lovely spot to spend some time, but don't go if there are cruise ships on the island! THis is where all the taxi's bring everyone

I would recommend renting a car or boat from Road Town to CGB to be honest but taxi is definitely an option. You can take a ferry from St. Thomas to Road Town and use any of the three options. To my knowledge, there isn't a... More
