Josiah's Bay, Tortola
Of all the beaches in the British Virgin Islands, Josiah's Bay Beach is a surfing paradise! As soon as a north swell begins to roll, surfers suit up and head out to the break line! Swimming is hit and miss for those who are not strong swimmers. It depends on the weather. I've been here when you'd think this was heaven on earth ... and I've seen people in trouble as well. There can be a fierce undertow at times!
Across from Josiah's Bay, (in the distance) is lovely Guana Island. White Bay Beach can be seen in the photo above. Guana offers a wonderful day anchorage for bareboaters and one of the most beautiful beaches in the BVI. Scuba diving or snorkelling is an absolute must there. Be sure to anchor carefully and please mind the reef!
Access is easy by road, but this is not a suitable anchorage. Nor is it one of those beaches where you can safely test your swimming skills or take your eyes off your children! Be sure you know where the undertows are before entering the water!
A picture is worth a thousand words ...
