About these ratings

The center of activity in the BVI is on Tortola and the center of activity on Tortola is Cane Garden Bay. You'll spend the day at this northwestern beach swimming in the turquoise water, renting a boat or kayak, snorkeling around the beach's western edge and enjoying the great food. And when the sun goes down, Cane Garden Bay turns up. Happy hours are aplenty and live music wafts from local bars like Quito's Gazebo, Elm and Myett's – plus, chances are you'll be dancing.

Visitors say that even with lots of activity, the beach is pristine, quiet and relaxing most of the time. However, when the cruise crowds roll in (usually between 10 a.m. and noon on certain days) travelers warn that the beach can get crowded. Either try to avoid visiting when a cruise ship is in port (check the BVI Ports Authority website for details) or plan to arrive early in the day to stake out a prime spot on the sand.

Cane Garden Bay is situated on the northwestern edge of Tortola, about 5 miles northwest of Road Town, and free to access daily.
