Tortola's wide sandy beaches are rarely crowded on Tortola, unless a cruise ship is in port. The best beaches are on the northern coast, especially Cane Garden Bay with its silky stretch of sand and gin-clear waters. Apple Bay is best for surfers, and Long Bay West is a dazzling strip of white sand running for a mile. Reached down a horrible road, riddled with pot holes, Smugglers Cove, with its palm-fringed beach, is worth the trouble to get there. Note: If you take a taxi to the sands, don't forget to arrange a time to be picked up. You'll have to navigate some roller-coaster hills to get there, but these fine white sands, with sheltering palm trees and gentle surf, are among the most popular in the B.

Aside from the stunning view and fantastic weather, the vibe of this beach is unique. Howes was born in Australia, grew up in South Africa, and has surfed in more than 20 countries. His English parents wanted Steve and his brother to be safe with the ocean just outside their Durban, South African home and enrolled them in a surfing and lifesaving club.
