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.

A beautiful little bay with a nice beach and good restaurants

We stopped at CGB to re-supply and enjoy a nice dinner at Quitos. The beach and town are very chill and it was a nice, relaxing spot to moor for the night!

Back to this great strip of sand after many years. Few improvements to the beach area and mostly everyone is friendly. Myetts still seems to be THE place. Dinner was very good. We had the Mahi sandwiches and split an order of coconut chicken tenders. Drinks were on point. Quitos was very good as well. Live pan music made the... More

Relaxing beach with calm waters. Sun beds and umbrellas 5 US dollars each. Several different bars and restaurants with great range of food and drink. Rum distillery 100 yards away.

We stayed on our sailboat. A surprising amount of swell comes in, making the dingy dock a challenge, but there are plenty of mellow waterfront bars and cafes to enjoy ashore.

Took local taxi from cruise port, wanted nice beach and got exactly that. Calm shoreline and slightly odd to see chickens wandering along beach through sun beds but visit was relaxing and very pleasant

Very nice beach on calm bay. Water was great for swimming as well, but nothing in the way of snorkelling. There as chairs and umbrellas for rent as well. Lots of places to grab a bite or a drink, and a convenient dingy dock to get there!

Spent the day on the beach at Cane Garden Bay. Calm waters, good drinks, good vibe. This is a "people-watching" beach. If you are looking for a seclusive, private beach...skip this. Rented ($5/person) the large water trampoline for the kids.... which entertained them for hours. Hard to go to Tortola and not spend at least one day at Cane Garden....

What great bay for a family to visit, the waters are shallow and calm. Pretty much a great stop for any age. A very fun living place!

Visited here on a charter yacht during a sailing holiday in the BVI well worth a visit if you can make it. Safe moorings and good food onshore
