Smuggler’s Cove, Tortola

copyright Rum Therapy
Smuggler’s Cove is a gorgeous, tranquil, soft sand beach fringed with palms on Tortola’s northwest side.The road to Smuggler’s Cove is bumpy and slow going, but you can also access the beach by taking a 20 minute hike from Long Bay Beach. Smuggler’s is usually quiet in the mornings, but can get busy on weekends and afternoons.

Most of the time the water is great for swimming and there are some areas of good snorkeling, but be careful of rough surf when there is a north swell. We hear there is a lifeguard available on weekends and a local vendor who serves up drinks and some snacks.

The palms lining the shore are tropically gorgeous and offer a lot of great shade when needed.
