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.

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

We rented a car in Road Town with the intention of visiting a number of beaches. This was last on our list before heading back. The beach is long and quiet, only 5 other people were there. I went out to snorkel and was amazed at the lack of any fish or life whatsoever. I was swimming back in when... More

Visited Long Bay beach resort for a massage in May 2015 and had some time to walk around afterward. Beautiful white sand beach. Wasn't overly busy in the mid morning yet. Sand was pretty warm though. Walked along the beach.

OMG this was totally serene. Only 2 people were there when we went. It's like being on your own private island.

Funnily enough, this is a long beach at the western end of Tortola, looking out to Sandy Cay and Jost van Dyke. Clean, shallow wi small waves, so suitable for younger children
