A perfect getaway for a day, this charming, half-mile strip of soft white sand is isolated and rarely visited since it is accessible only by a small dirt road.

Far from road town (about 30 minutes) but good road access. Near the airport -noisy. Near as all harbor with coffee shops and grocery store but need a car to get there from the beach. The beach itself is a hidden jewel. We mainly saw some locals coming. Mainly we had the beach for ourselves. Great sand, awesome tree shade,... More

I have been fortunate to travel many places. The attraction for me at this beach is that it is a long fringe beach (I think it's 1 mile in length) that offers a variety of things. It's great for walking or finding sea treasurers. I enjoyed boogie boarding and body surfing on one day when there were more waves, the... More

I have always enjoyed spending the day here on the beach and having lunch. The staff is very nice and always welcome me back. The rooms are a bit tired. The grounds could use some work. The pool is extremely small near the beach. They have a larger pool that is now closed. I would call to see if that... More

We spent a wonderful week in a villa on Long Bay beach. This was my favorite beach of the 5 beaches we visited on Tortola. A nice stretch of beach to walk in the morning and evening. It was not very populated the week we were there and we loved it! Nature Boy provided some interesting conversation and delicious rum... More

We only visited this beach once and it was definitely not our favorite. It's a very narrow beach and was also very rocky in the water. I much preferred, Smugglers Cove and Cane Garden Bay.

Stayed at the Long Bay Beach Resort located on this beach. Lots of wave action and probably one of the longest beaches in Tortola. Went to sleep with the ocean noise every night. If you like wave action this is the beach.

If you like taking a long stroll on a sandy beach, this is your spot. It's also easy to enter the water here (sections with no rocks) and there are a couple of open-air restaurants as well.

Beautiful, quiet beach. You enter the beach through mangrove trees. No amenities but beautiful, white sandy beach

On the north of the island, Well worth going l think. We stayed for the afternoon after being tired of the crowds at smugglers cove. Yes a narrow beach but sandy you do have some stones when you first go into the sea but just look and there are spots where you go into the the sea no issues. All... More
