Tortola Beaches - Brandywine Bay
The government of the British Virgin Islands brought in several thousand tons of sand dredged from various harbours around the island and used it to rebuild the beach at Brandywine Bay. The beach had eroded substantially over the past several years.
There's nothing much here other than good swimming and pretty decent snorkelling too! There's likely good shell collecting as well, as the sand has been dredged. (I didn't have time to thoroughly investigate, but I found a couple of Sunrise Tellons in good shape, just lying on top of the sand.) If you bring a small shovel and sieve, chances are you may find a few treasures here!
Tourists rarely visit, but that is about to change. The BVI government has plans to develop this beach and turn it into an entertainment area as well as an alternate beach for cruise ship passengers, to take the strain off other beaches such as Cane Garden Bay and Brewers Bay.
