Smuggler's Cove, Tortola

#Reef, #Water Body, #Must See
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. Use our West End trip itinerary planner to visit Smuggler's Cove on your trip to West End, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
