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.

Great to see Cane Garden Bay working hard to recover after the devastation from Irma and Maria. There is still lots to do but the beach and bay are still beautiful with 3 bars open for cocktails or food. Go visit and spend some money...More

After taking a full hit from the hurricanes Cane Garden Bay and the surrounding areas are coming back, there is lots of work to be done!. Some restuarants are open and are good. Stop by the beach is great!

Visited this beach a few weeks after the hurricane had hit! The views are lovely, the beach was very clean, sea nice and calm. Unfortunately 99% of the cafes / restaurants are massively damaged so very little to visit. Strongly suggest taking a picnic with...More
