Tortola Beaches & Bays

Mocko Jumbies in Road Town, Tortola

© dta Apple Bay, Tortola

Tortola is home to some of the most scenic and untouched beaches in the Caribbean. For surfers, boogie boarders or those that just love to play in the waves, the beaches on the North Shore have the most wave action. Despite the waves, the beaches on Tortola are incredibly safe, having long steadily sloping sand banks where you can walk right out and only find yourself waist deep!

Snorkling is possible on most beaches although some have more active coral and sea life than others.

British Virgin Islands beaches have been voted the "best beaches" by Caribbean Travel and Life Magazine.
