Two favourite places to sail into on Tortola, British Virgin Islands are Cane Garden Bay and Trellis Bay near the airport.
Cane Garden Bay is centrally located on the north side of Tortola and easy to sail into if you are on your way to Jost Van Dyke. It is a crescent shaped bay surrounded by high hills with plenty of moorings to pick up. The beach has all sorts of bars and restaurants for entertainment and great for stretching your legs ashore. You can safely swim there due to buoy management where dinghies are not allowed to park on the shore. There is a good provisioning shop there and also the historic Callwords Rum Distillery which has the original structure of the factory to view and you can buy samples of the rum too.
Cane Garden Bay is also a great place to jump in a taxi and go to Bomba’s Shack, famous for its Full Moon Parties.
Another huge attraction for a Full Moon Party’s is Fireball Full Moon Party in Trellis Bay where the whole beach turns into a great night life area including bars steel drums, reggae bands, Caribbean food, Moko Jumbies dancing and the spectacular fireballs. Over the years this has turned into a huge attraction for Full moon.
