Great beach, easy to park - ideal for just snorkelling around, plenty of fish but the coral is in a pretty poor state.

Beach was empty so we had it to ourselves. There is a beach bar on one end that was a nice surprise. Good place for someone who needs a bit of shade to hang out. Beach water is not clean. Has run off flowing into it from rain, bringing tree leaves, etc., laying on ocean floor. There is a nice reef on left though. Need to snorkel a short bit to get to it. Be sure to snorkel far enough out to get to second reef that is alive with Reagan's and lots of fish.

This is a beautiful beach, not too crowded, with snorkeling. The best part is the advertiré getting there. So beautiful.

We have visited the BVIs three times in the past five years and always go to Smugglers at least two times! The water is perfect, the snorkling off shore is excellent and Nigel is always serving great drinks!

It's a must do while in Tortola!

Worth the drive through the jungle to arrive at this beach paradise. No amenities except for Nigel if he is around. He'll rent you chairs, etc. or make you a drink. A clean portapotty available. Lots of parking and space. Bring your own stuff is the best advise. A small reef is nearby for great snorkeling. Good swimming beach.
