Decided to give Brewers bay a try while visiting Tortola by cruise ship, every other time we had been to the beautiful Cane Garden bay but fancied some snorkelling. We got off the ship early and shared a taxi with another couple for $8 per person each way. We were so glad we went there. We hired sunbeds for $5,... More

Beach was dirty...chairs filthy and some broken, bathrooms nasty. We told driver we needed a beach with umbrellas for SURE...he said they had them...dropped us off...NO umbrellas, had to sit back in trees.

Return visit to Brewers bay. Arrived early. Picture post card view. Other beach lovers arrived. Sun beds available with plenty of trees for shade. Waves a little rough this time but did not spoil the fun. Pelicans diving and swooping for fish into the waves. Lovely sand and a stroll around the bay enjoyable. Beach bar, rum punch and cooked...

My family and I chose this beach on the fly, leaving the cruise ship. Our cab driver was fun and informative. The beach is lovely, covered w smooth stones. The water was the perfect temp and great for boogie boarding, not snorkeling 👎🏼, but the kids had fun. There is limited food/drink that we found, but may have not seen... More

We took Timothy's Tour from Road Town....we learned so much about Tortola & the ride up the mountain with the hairpin turns was so fun...we stopped at the Mountaintop which has a fantastic view of the harbor & you can shop and try the local rum. Then he took us to Brewers Bay where we swam and then took a... More

This beach is a bit of a crazy drive to get to with the hills and hairpin turns but so worth it. We came to Tortola on a cruise so we took the local bus to get to the beach. It was absolutely gorgeous!!

Visit to Brewers bay quite peaceful and nice sandy beach. Do be careful as they do have a strong undercurrent but all in all would suggest going less people and a great beach there's a bar as well and a camp ground you can rent beach chairs from the bar $5 per chair and you should return them.

We have visited Brewers Bay during one day stop over on Tortola. You can get a taxi right from the ferry dock, haggle for a price a little bit, but for 2 people it will be 20 dollars ride. The bay and beach is beautiful and quiet, one third usually occupied by the crowds from cruise boats but if you... More

Only one beach bar and restaurant, but lots of space on the lovely sandy beach and some of the best snorkelling on Tortola down the left hand shore. The lack of facilities seems to keep the crowds away and certainly the cruise ship crowds never make it there.

We spent a hot sunny day at the beach, $8 per person each way in a taxi from the port. A picture perfect location, my daughter (aged 11) spent all day in the water, the waves were fun and we also managed to hire a kayak for 1/2 an hour (only $20). We had some fun watching some newlyweds having... More
