Centrally located on Tortola's north side, this is probably the busiest beach since its beauty is often compared to Magen's Bay on St. Thomas.

I give 4 stars to this beach because of the services available, but I could have given 3 because of the fact that it was crowded. the chairs are of good quality, and so are the umbrella (5$ each). I didn't like the fact that they were all so close to each other, but I understand it is a popular... More

We were staying just above Cane Garden Bay so spent quite a few days down on the beach during our 2 week holiday. Whilst on certain days when a cruise ship party visit the beach the bottom part of the beach is busy. This is where the bars, sunbeds etc are located. However we tended to sit under a large... More

Cane Garden Bay is relatively close to Roadtown, but be aware it's over the top of the hill so driving is dicey. Don't drink there and try to navigate back to town. Sunsets are lovely, there are many places on the beach to eat and drink and listen to music as the sun sets. Very idyllic, low-key, laid back place... More

Good shops, food is so so. Can be really hot for morning if there isn't a breeze. No real snorkeling close by. Decent provisions available, ice, beer, breads, water. Dockside water and fuel available.

We came by this beach on our drive around the Island. It was super crowded at first but them the cruise ship people left around 1:45pm and it cleared out. Lots of places to eat and drink and SUP rentals.

This is a really nice beach in Tortola. There are also amenities on beach-can get a chair and umbrella (does sometimes fill with cruise visitors so can get populated).

This beach, as the name says, is on a bay, so it is not a big beach. There are chairs and umbrellas available for a reasonable rent. You can find restaurants and shops right there, it is ready for tourists. If you are looking for a secluded beach, that is not the place for you. Now, if you want to... More

We first visited CGB in 2007 and I was so happy to return! It's still as beautiful and amazing as I remembered. The laid-back vibe and Caribbean music in the air is as great as I remembered. Still one of my favorites!
