The cruise ships come into Road Town. There is a car rental place within walking distance of the ferry. Can't remember the name. Rent a car and go to Cane Garden Bay for a lot of action and a lot of other cruisers or go to Brewers Bay or Smugglers Cover to avoid the crowds.

Jst taxi to Brewers zbay to enjoy a nice beach with 1 beach bar and some amenities. $8 each way in a safari taxi with others from your ship. You'll see taxis at the dock waiting for fares there and the other beaches.

We would go to Smuggler's Cove because it's the most beautiful, taxi will be more snd the amenities are just a coupe vendors selling drinks and a BBQ and portapotties. But a gorgeous beach?

Everyone else will be going to CGB.

Have a great day on the beach,on Tortola!

Rent a car (around $80) and head to Smugglers Cove. Avoid CGB unless you want to be with hoards of your fellow cruise companions.

patz what experience do you want - busy, secluded, or in between? CGB = busy, Brewers = less busy, and Smuggler's = even less busy and gorgeous.

And I would taxi if you haven't driven Tortola before. The coastal road from RT to West End and over Zion Hill Road to SMuggler's isn't bad but I wouldn't suggest you go the "Elevator" route over the hill. Taxi fare depends on the number in your party...
