This beach was our last stop with St Thomas Boat Rental Charter tour of Tortola. As expected on the Tortola area beaches, we found crystal clear turquoise and white sandy beaches. Recomended👍

Amazing quiet beach with Nigels Bar and Grill right on it. A little hard to get to but well worth spending the day in this nice little cove for lounging, snorkeling and catching some rays.

Don't know if you got an answer on this or not. In terms of distance, it's not that far from the cruise port. In terms of the road conditions and logistics, I would allow 45 minutes to and from. RICH
