Brewers bay for me was one of the most virgin beach in Tortola. The environment around make that you feel are in solitaire island! Is extremely relax, clean and beautiful! The nature around is like a paradise.

Really enjoyed this quiet beach and how sandy and non-rocky it was. Great for kids! There was a restaurant there with delicious fried plantains!
