Apple Bay, Tortola

(4.1/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
Check out the beach at Apple Bay, far from the more touristy areas and a haven for surfers. Walk on soft sands, take a swim, or simply relax and soak up the sun. Usually experiencing some swell, the sea also offers great swimming and snorkelling conditions when flat. Get a refreshing drink and observe the surfers at the beach bar, which also hosts monthly full moon parties. Consider bringing your own chairs and umbrellas if you'd like to avoid paying to rent them. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, British Virgin Islands holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Apple Bay and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
