It is one of the best beaches in the world. The only down side is that sometimes in the early afternoon you have to put up with a bunch of drunks on day sail trips from St. Thomas.

If you like a party atmosphere with lots of people and a great assortment of beach bars, this is the place for you. If you like a little more peace and quiet, the key is to get there on an overnight yacht charter and arrive...More

Loved our time at White Bay. Amazing sand, water and atmosphere. The BVI vibe was finally found after a few days sailing. Definitely a place to chill, enjoy the sun and chew the fat with fellow sailors.

Easily one of the most beautiful beaches in the islands. We stayed here our last night of our charter. I didn’t want to leave. Seriously we tried to work an extra day out. But... they were booked.... We will be back for sure

St. Thomas Boat Rental - we were a family of four and took a smaller vessel. They have boats to handle larger groups and will pick-up at any of the USVI or BVI if memory serves correctly.
