Five Beaches You Must Visit In BVI
The British Virgin Islands are made up of 60 islands. Known for having beautiful sand, lively beach bars and picturesque hideaways; there is something for everyone.
The Baths (Virgin Gorda)
Ranking as the top attraction on Trip Advisor's Things to Do in British Virgin Islands list, it's not hard to see why The Baths beach area pulls in the crowds. It's the most iconic attraction on the island and has a unique collection of volcanic boulders spread across grottos, caves and sheltered pools. As this is the most iconic destination on the island, it gets hectic, so if you’re looking for a quiet getaway, there are other options for that.
Devil's Bay National Park (Virgin Gorda)
Devil's Bay is 15 minutes away from the top of The Baths, and it's worth the hike. Be prepared to wade through water, scale granite boulders, crawl through vegetation and climb ladders to get to one of Virgin Gorda's most beautiful beaches. You also can arrive at Devil's Bay by boat and would find that there are mooring buoys to protect fragile coral heads and swimming markers that make it safe for snorkelers.
White Bay (Jost Van Dyke)
If you're looking for a place to let your hair down and sip the best drinks that BVI has to offer, White Bay is the spot. The social hub houses the famous Soggy Dollar Bar who perfected a full flavoured rum cocktail rum cocktail called the Painkiller. Long lines of sailboats, lively bars and trails with sugar mill ruins and a sea-formed jacuzzi, will leave you in awe.
Anegada Island (Road Town)
Listed as the fourth-largest barrier reef in the world, the Anegada Island Road Town is an excellent hub for snorkelling, scuba diving and exploring shipwrecks in BVI. If you love nature and quiet strolls on the beach, you’re almost guaranteed to be joined by flamingos, turtles, iguanas and other animal species that would make your visit one to remember.
Smuggler's Cove (Tortola)
It’s difficult for boats to anchor at Smuggler's Cove due to the reefs, so it makes it a great hideaways spot from the crowds and day-trip charters. You can access it by navigating the Route 1 near Belmont Bay, or you can hike it from Long Bay which would take you about 20 minutes. Known as a place for real seclusion, you can enjoy the unspoiled beach, trade winds and palm trees mostly all to yourself.
