One of the most beautiful places in the BVI

This beach is one of my favorite beaches. It's simply gorgeous, but it's also hopping, so if you are looking for a quiet beach to just chill, this isn't for you.

Wow. Spent a day at White Bay! The colour of the water, the white beach sand, the scenery....only one word answers, paradise, heaven, amazing....the list goes in! There were a couple of shops to visit, One Love, in particular where the lady there was very helpful (& very interesting telling me how she came to be at a White Bay!).... More

White Bay does not disappoint. Cute little shops and a few great restaurants. The beach is awesome, with lots of big sailboats in the harbor. A great place to relax.

Go rustic in a hut, or primitive in your tent camped on a white sand beach! Sailors, snorkeling, songs, complete with a cast of characters that arrive by sea or ones that live there. Campgrounds are clean and bath house with showers are a delight. More than two decades of laughter and memories have been shared with Ivan - and... More

Beautiful location. Even somewhere that could cater for vegans. Soggy dollar bar friendly and food and drinks reasonably priced and food excellent. Can get busy. Arrive early to get a mooring ball. Swim ashore was hard work but worth it.

Be sure to follow the channel markers when arriving by boat, as a line of reefs that protects the bay is Very shallow. Although there are mooring buoys to the left of the approach, we chose to anchor to the right as our destination was The Soggy Dollar Bar. When we first visited in the late 1990s, it was the...

One of the most gorgeous beaches I have seen. The white sand was easy to walk in. The first day we were there it was very windy and overcasted. Which we loved because there weren't many ships so you can swim anywhere. Enjoyed playing in the waves. The water was warm. Loved watching people swimming to shore.

Every day at White Bay different people pull up in different boats. It's great for people watching! Sit in the free chairs in front of Soggy Dollar. They make the best Painkiller. They also serve really good food!

White Bay is gorgeous. The water is beautiful. It is picture perfect. There are however, a lot of bars and restaurants on the beach, which means that it can be crowded. The bay was crowded when we arrived. The beach was not that crowded, but several of the bars were overflowing. Don't forget to take a look around to see... More
