What is the best an closest up and running beach to the cruise port? We have anever been here and with only a short time want to make the best of it. Thanks in advance for any input.

Cane Garden Bay and Brewers Bay, both a 20 minute, $8pp safari-type group taxi over to the north coast. CGB has several beach bars/restaurants, lounge & umbrella rentals + water toy rentals, while Brewers is much more laid back with one beach bar, gorgeous views, and offers snorkeling. There are other less visited beaches but these are the easiest and most recommended.

You will find reports and Q& A’s on the Tortola forum on cruise critic that are helpful to day visitors.

[EDIT] Some take a private taxi for a little more $ to save time and enjoy the ride over, you’ll find both optionsatt the pier. Drivers will return to take you back to the dock.

Many day visitors with short port times choose to take an island tour, drivers at the pier offer 3 - 4 hour tours - some with a beach/lunch stop - at very reasonable prices (~$25/pp). But for more beach time just hop a taxi going to CGB or Brewers, there will be several going to CGB.
