There are not a lot of beaches that we found. We saw surfers and there were beaches at the hotels, some were private, some not. Water came right up to wall embankments, so no beach.

We stayed in a cottage above Apple Bay and could see all the surfers out there, all day. It was beautiful! We also went to Bomba's for the full moon party (though isn't Bomba's technically on Capoon's Bay?). The area of Tortola is just gorgeous.

It was fun watching the surfers. This is not a beach to swim on and really not much beach either. Don't know that I would attend a full moon party at the Bomba shack-it looks a bit too "wild and crazy"!

A spot of heaven and peace. This is a place for surfers and very peaceful. It is just a small strip of beach but absolutely beautiful.

This is the real Tortola, people. Away from development, close to nature and local culture. Sure, there are better swimming beaches but Apple Bay has a magic all its own. If you know where to look...the "seashell museum/breakfast cafe" is a CLASSIC!
