We visited in early November, on a Saturday and had the entire beach to ourselves! I don't know where everyone else was, but they were missing out! There is a small bar/restaurant at one end of the beach with great rum drinks and basic pub food. The water is crystal clear as you walk out into it, it's all sand...no... More

Great beach for snorkeling but that is about it. No facilities at all, a small snack bar with only one restroom. Everything priced reasonably and it was only a few bucks from the port. Romantic spot, but I prefer a beach with more options of food and beverage, restrooms and showers.

This beach was just an $8 per person shuttle ride from the cruise ship terminal. We did not pre-book this excursion, and when we got off the ship we had no idea where we wanted to go. We just knew we wanted to go to a beach. So, we just got off the ship and followed the signs to the... More

This was probably my favorite spot to snorkel on Tortola, although it was difficult to find because one of the main roads to get there was shut down for construction.

After we found it, can be a little tricky to find off the map we had and the little road that goes straight to it was down. Snorkeling in front of Nicole's beach bar was the best place. You can swim along the reef and watch the sea life. We saw a nurse shark, lion fish and a turtle. Lots... More

We love Brewers bay beach, it was so clean and less crowded. My family and I spent 2 days there. We love it so much, we are planning another trip soon. We love the British Virgin Islands very much. Been there 12 times already. Thanks.

This beach ranks up with Smuggler's Cove Beach as the best on Tortola. We enjoyed the snorkeling, calmness of the comfortable clear blue water, and beautiful sand. Coral stretches along much of the beach and in many places only a few meters out making snorkeling easy. The advantage over Smuggler's Cove Beach is it is a bit easier to get... More

OMG. This was the BEST part of our trip. Took a taxi to Brewers Bay- the taxi cab was CLEAN and the driver was AWESOME. He dropped us and came back exactly when we asked him to - even though it was about a 30 min drive from port. We were a little nervous since we had been to st... More

The water is very calm and so is the beach. It's usually empty which is always nice. Brewer's Bay is also a great place for snorkeling.
