6 nights in Long Bay

4.83 out of 5 stars from 13 reviews



Long Bay, Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Beaches are abundant on Tortola. Long Bay Beach, the mile long expanse in front of the villa, is a two minute walk. The 1789 and Tropical Fusion restaurants at the beach offer excellent food service (1789 is under renovation). Nature Boy Beach Bar, at the west end of Long Bay Beach, offers rustic beverage service from native islanders.

For other beaches, you'll want to have a car. National Car Rental (284-494-3197/284-495-2626) will pick you up at the ferry dock or meet you at the airport. Other agencies are also reliable. Ask for a small SUV so that you can drive comfortably on some of the back roads. Taxis are also available and quite affordable but not so convenient.

Smuggler's Cove might be the first beach to visit after Long Bay Beach. Very close, and still relatively undeveloped, it usually offers calm waters and decent snorkeling close to the beach (I've been there snorkeling among schools of tarpon). Cane Garden Bay is a must-see. Plan to have lunch there. The beach is great for kids, and has wave runners, paddle boards, and other water sports available. We love Brewer's Bay, also for good snorkeling and usually calm waters. Josiah's Bay on the other end of the island is usually good for higher surf, although their are some nice areas for snorkeling in calmer seas on the east end of the beach.

For day trips, the Baths at Virgin Gorda are incredible. Peter and Cooper Islands are also fun, and a trip to the national park on St. John is great (take your passport). Other islands are also close by and accessible.

Restaurants are abundant and excellent. Most have great Caribbean fare and seafood is a must. Kids are also welcome! Ask for recommendations.

The people of the island are friendly and helpful. There are not many natives of the BVI, and many of the people you encounter will from other islands. However, if you respect the people, they will respect you. The ambiance is a bit different from the more overrun touristy islands, the pace is calmer, and the people are more focused on enjoying life.

They call the BVI 'Nature's Little Secret', and there is a lot of truth to that. You can't help but have a good time there.
