Must see · Reef · Water Body
Find a secluded and restful place at Smuggler's Cove, a calm, sheltered inlet beach. To reach this spot at the western end of Tortola, you'll need to maneuver a bumpy, unpaved road. The beach uses this relative inaccessibility to its advantage, offering a feeling of calm and seclusion rare among the island's coastal areas. When swimming and snorkeling in the clear water, keep an eye out for resident sea turtles.
