A perfect getaway for a day, this charming, half-mile strip of soft white sand is isolated and rarely visited since it is accessible only by a small dirt road.

Visited Long Bay beach resort for a massage in May 2015 and had some time to walk around afterward. Beautiful white sand beach. Wasn't overly busy in the mid morning yet. Sand was pretty warm though. Walked along the beach.

OMG this was totally serene. Only 2 people were there when we went. It's like being on your own private island.

Funnily enough, this is a long beach at the western end of Tortola, looking out to Sandy Cay and Jost van Dyke. Clean, shallow wi small waves, so suitable for younger children

Came into port on a cruise ship... on a day when there were 3 cruise ships. Cruise ships = crowds but we asked and were happy to find this little beach. Nice facilities at the beach club, which you can use free of charge. A very narrow beach with high tide, but gorgeous. Rocks in the water, but spots were... More

We were visiting Tortola on a cruise and they canceled our excursion due to the high tide. We were speaking with another couple and told them we wanted to find a beautiful secluded, not crowed beach since I saw the bus loads being shuttled over to some of the more popular ones. She mentioned this beach to us so we... More

If you take water shoes, the place is great. Great views, beautiful looking water and scapes. The people running the hotel and restaurant did a great job with lunch. We were on a shore excursion with Disney a cruise Lines. The only thing no one told us was that the beach is sandy but the water is not. It was... More

This is a great place to walk on the beach or sit down for a bite to eat. It's not the best snorkeling area because the water tends to be a little rougher, but it's still nice water to go into. Make sure to bring a camera to take pictures.

First, to be clear... there are two Long Bay beaches in Tortola. Both are great and both deserted. One, next to the airport (actually on Beef Is) is the locals' choice; the other towards west end, with part occupied by the Long Bay resort. Ignoring the resort, the western end of this huge bay is paradise. The only commercialization is... More
