|About these ratings|
Just north of Cane Garden Bay on Tortola's northwest side is Brewers Bay, purported to be one of the best snorkeling beaches of the British Virgin Islands. Recent travelers say this assessment is mostly true, if you have your own equipment. The tales of renting what's accessible by the shore all read the same: Well-worn flippers and rusty-dusty goggles. Dissatisfied visitors agree: The trip to Brewers was hardly worth it if you don't have your own snorkeling paraphernalia. It seems especially ludicrous if you consider the approximately $20 taxi ride to the beach.
Still, Brewers is a more romantic, quiet option than the nearby Cane Garden Bay. And since it too is open all day long, you might want to consider popping over during the mid-day cruise rush to Tortola's most popular beach.
