Lovely cove with good swimming and lounging. There is an acceptable beach bar at the near end. The drive here was scary but do-able in a normal car. The one big drawback was someone burning their garbage, presumably vegetation but could also have been household-- blew straight toward the beach for the several hours we were there.

Brewer's Bay is, in my opinion, the best beach in Tortola. Any time the my wife and I have visited this special place, it has been quiet and not crowded at all. Boats are banned from the bay because of telephone cables that cross the bay on the bottom. This is a beautiful and unspoiled spot, with flocks of diving... More

Great beach to swim and relax. Not very crowded. There was a little wave action, which I like. Food and drinks are available. Worth the trip

Everyone can find here what you like. Millions of fishes to discover during snorkeling. Quiet lazy rest on water or sand. Unusual grape trees and wild chicken on it. And sun even under totally cloudy sky. Beautiful!

This was recommended by the port information desk after my son failed to get up on time and off the ship to go experience the Baths. From Port, you takes an exciting open air taxi that I think was about $6 a person. Tell the driver the time you want to return (sorta a time agreed by all on the... More

Wonderful beach. Good food and drinks available. Hidden but easy access from the road. Relaxing. Calm waters. Great swimming and sun-bathing.

Small, quiet and simply beautiful. The cruise ship crowd headed elsewhere, this place was great! There is one full service snack bar/bar with restrooms as well as a couple of freelance vendors selling beer, soda, and water. There is also a small place renting paddle boards and snorkel gear. Truly great beach.

Absolutely stunning beach, so beautiful and so raw. The water was very clear but I understand from the locals that at times it can be quite rough with an under current. Thankfully when we visited the water was calm and beautiful. There is a fantastic bar at the end of the beach with a very good selection of drinks/snacks and... More

Our charter boat took us the Brewers Bay for an afternoon of snorkeling and other water sports. Several on the boat snorkeled to the beach while my husband and I went out to reef then back snorkeling and then kayaked. This is one of the most beautiful, peaceful coves on Tortola. If you get a chance get to this beautiful... More
