Owner description: Centrally located on Tortola's north side, this is probably the busiest beach since its beauty is often compared to Magen's Bay on St. Thomas.

“Busy hot spot with lots of action”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Easy to get to spot with lots of beach bars, food and music. Nice roped swimming area and lots of sand and chairs for sunning and relaxing. Definitely not a quiet spot so avoid if you are looking for a quiet spot to read in solitude. Great place for solo travelers as everyone is friendly and happy to have you join their group for some rum and conversation.

“Beautiful beach but it is crowded with day tourists”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Cane Garden Bay is a beautiful beach with many good restaurants to chose from. However, the taxis take folk from the cruise ships to this beach. It can be very crowded. There are things to do there for all.

“Taxi adventure to the Beach.”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We had a great 30 minute 8 dollar ride from Roadtown right across the island in a taxi for 16 people, which struggled valiantly up the winding mountainous road, and down the other side.It was great fun leaning over the side from the wooden bench seat to take video and photos! Wonderful scenic views of lush vegetation and seaviews.
The beach itself was really crowded and the beach chairs were scarce althoughthe attendant was willing to patrol for vacant ones whilst we balanced precariously on 2 that he patched up with blue electric tape! No point complaining when everyone is so friendly and helpful. Chickens and their chicks scratched and clucked around us on the beach.
The sea was warm, blue and clear, I stayed in for ages with goggles and swam with many pretty coloured fishes!

Many soft drinks, cocktails and types of food to choose from at reasonable prices, and a colourful little market selling all sorts, food, trinkets, souvenirs, clothes etc.
It was a lovely peaceful time, having walked along a bit and found newer chairs, we werecsettled for the day, and didn't really notice the crowds.
