Tortola Beaches - Smuggler's Cove

I have a lot of "favourite" beaches in the BVI, but Smuggler's Cove is where I usually go (if I have time) to swim, kick back and relax for a while. I love this place... and not just because its relatively close to my home, but because this particular beach is quite simply irresistible, and the snorkelling is fabulous!

Smuggler's Cove - Tortola, British Virgin Islands

The dirt road access is less than inviting and its not unlike embarking upon an African Safari to get here! In fact, many people prefer to walk in, leaving their cars at the Fish 'n Lime Restaurant, West End Ferry Terminal or at Long Bay Resort, rather than drive. But of all the beaches in the British Virgin Islands, this one is definitely worth the trouble! I prefer peace, quiet, good snorkelling and uncrowded beaches ... so this is the perfect place for me!
