#1 of 18 in Wildlife in British Virgin Islands
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. Put Smuggler's Cove at the forefront of your travel plans using our British Virgin Islands vacation builder.
