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.

  • Spent time at the secluded beach location known as Smuggler's Cove. While Nigel's was mysteriously closed that day, Patrica was definitely operating and made the best drinks! She and her family...

  • Tiny little beach with two little beach bars. It is a hidden gem tucked away in the west end of Tortola.

  • Quiet little beach with gorgeous sand, decent snorkeling at the south end of the bay, good parking, and two beach bar restaurants. We spent two full days here relaxing during our vacation and loved every minute of it. We WILL be back! Some rocks getting into the water due to a recent storm, but overall an excellent island beach.
  • Great beach, and a visit to Nigel's completed the experience!
  • We took a private Shuttle and it was so worth it. Absolutely breathtaking and away from the crowds. The 2 bars on the beach serving extra strong drinks were icing on the cake!
  • Way off the beaten path! It was almost a 10 minute drive to get to the beach, all dirt back roads. definitely a beach we will go back to. The bartender was phenomenal and made some excellent drinks.
  • Beautiful beach. Worth the drive out to it
