Tortola, Long Beach
The quality of the sandy beaches on the British Virgin Islands is very high. The likelihood of finding your own beach is just as high. You will find the beaches easily around the city in your rented car or on a scooter. Especially recommended is Tortola and the west side of Virgin Gorda. Garden Bay at Tortola is close to the city and here you are not alone. In return, there are beach bars, hotels and beach service.
