Beaches & Bays of the BVI
© dta Apple Bay, Tortola
The beaches and bays in the the British Virgin Islands are not only beautiful but are almost always uncrowded and often deserted.
Each beach is unique so whether your looking for a soft white sand as far as you can see or if you'd prefer to have a beach shack on hand for some daquiries, there is something for you.
Snorkelling, sunbathing, surfing or just exploring - we have a beach for everything. Even avid surfers will be thrilled by the long north swells that roll lazily in during the winter months on Tortola's north shore.
British Virgin Islands beaches have been voted the "best beaches" by Caribbean Travel and Life Magazine.
