We stayed in a cottage above Apple Bay and could see all the surfers out there, all day. It was beautiful! We also went to Bomba's for the full moon party (though isn't Bomba's technically on Capoon's Bay?). The area of Tortola is just gorgeous.

It was fun watching the surfers. This is not a beach to swim on and really not much beach either. Don't know that I would attend a full moon party at the Bomba shack-it looks a bit too "wild and crazy"!

A spot of heaven and peace. This is a place for surfers and very peaceful. It is just a small strip of beach but absolutely beautiful.

This is the real Tortola, people. Away from development, close to nature and local culture. Sure, there are better swimming beaches but Apple Bay has a magic all its own. If you know where to look...the "seashell museum/breakfast cafe" is a CLASSIC!

quiet, rustic west side of tortola. serene and beautiful. local population is terrific. unlike other parts of tortola, the apple bay section of the western side of the island is quiet, calm and enjoyable. beaches are clean, maintained and look out into the best area for surfing on tortola. average 12-24" waves, enough to surf, higher with weather. hotel and restaurant choices in walking distance. FYI - all beaches in the british virgin islands are open to everyone, so if you are driving around, see some sand, pull over and enjoy. this includes the beaches at resorts and hotels - free, free is good.
