BVI Beaches - Long Bay, Beef Island
This truly splendid, powder white beach, offers terrific swimming in the beautiful, turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean. The water conditions at Long Bay are almost always serene and ideal for the whole family. There is a pretty quick drop off from shallow water, so non swimmers and children in particular should probably wear flotation devices and be carefully watched by an adult.
Pack a picnic basket and cooler with water and drinks and make a day of it with your family and friends! Bring along your water toys, Frisbee and beach ball because there's plenty of room to stretch out and play. Please bring along your own garbage back and take your trash with you when you leave. You may want to avoid visiting during any long weekends as this is popular spot and gets very busy on holidays!
The view from the beach of Great Camanoe, directly opposite Long Bay. Aside from some noise created by the odd plane taking off from the airport ... it is a very quiet place to escape and enjoy your surroundings.
A picture is worth a thousand words ...
