Josiah's Bay, Tortola

Take to the waves with surf lessons at Josiah's Bay, where lush green hills surround a soft, sandy crescent beach with a good swell. The surf school on site provides daily lessons, and after playing in the waves for the day, visit one of the two beach huts for a drink and a snack. The beach is generally a peaceful, uncrowded place, despite its reputation as a great place to learn surfing.
