Private Tours to the Beaches in Tortola

Does anyone know or has anyone taken a private boat to any of the beach islands on Tortola.

We will be arriving by Cruise Ship 9 family members & would like to book a local tour to the beach.

Suggestions on the nicest beach would be appreciated

Smuggler's Cove, search posts here and on cc for details. Try scatosbusntaxi.com for transportation.

Taxi rates are here -


There is also a tour operator (bvi360.com) operating a boat to Jost.

Most of the nice beaches on Tortola are on the opposite side of the island than where the ships come. There are boats that do day trips or half-day trips but mostly to islands other than Tortola, they typically do not stop at the north shore beaches and there are taxis that will take you to the various beaches on the island or a tour of the island.

If you click on the things to do or google day sail Tortola, you will get much of the info regarding the day sails.

Saffie is correct, the beaches on the North side of Tortola are on the opposite side of the island, and most people take cabs to the beaches. However, if you enjoy boats, you can probably make arrangements for a charter boat to take you to the beaches. It would be more expensive that cabs, but probably a lot more fun, depending on the weather. Whether boat or taxi, I strongly recommend making arrangements ahead of time rather than trying to find something at the Harbour.

Have a great trip, alashas http://www.youtube.com/user/honeymoon2
