Cane Garden Bay

Surfs up in the jewel of the British Virgin Islands, Cane Garden Bay. Located on the northwestern coastline of Tortola Island, this fabulous portion of the beach close to Road Town is a favorite amongst water sport enthusiasts. From surfing, boating, jet skiing, boogey boarding, to good old fashioned swimming, the Cane Garden Bay’s spacious and well protected anchorage is a premiere destination for the anyone who likes getting in the water.

The area is not just known for its laid back beach life style, but glaring on shore activity as well, with a plethora of restaurants, clubs, pubs, and music, such is the case with Quito’s Gazebo, where owner Quito Rymer will perform wonderful dance ensembles for his much entertained customers.

With the addition of the diverse and very large Myett’s (restaurant/pub/reception hall) Cane Garden Bay is now also a popular place to get hitched; with many patrons and newlyweds celebrating there after getting married down by the water.

Tortola

With its white-sand beaches, forested groves, and yacht-filled harbors, Tortola is the epitome of a tropical paradise—without the isolation. This island is also the the largest and most populated of the British Virgin Islands and home to the capital of Road Town, meaning that it is easy to access and full of visitor amenities.

Sage Mountain National Park

With the highest point located at an astounding 1,716 feet above sea level, Sage Mountain National Park is considered a hikers paradise, complete with majestic overlooks, tropical trees and 29 acres of an exotic forest that has been untouched for over 500 years.

Aside from Sage Mountain’s plentiful views and guided trails and maps along the way make the experience all the more easier; there is a roaring tropic wildlife full of Bo-peep tree frogs, lizards, a variation of crabs and ever-elusive bananaquits.

Exotic trees and plants are also in abundance, including guavaberry you can find through the Central trail, elephant ear vine in the semi rain forest area up the Northern trail, not to mention scattered fig tree, bulletwood, white cedar, and mahogany.
