White Bay Beach is a Caribbean classic, a truly fantastic stretch of sandy beach shelving into superb sea in a score of shades of blue, with a very small hotel and a couple of beach bars. White Bay Beach can be reached by boat or overland from Great Harbour.

White Bay and its beach is occasionally invaded by cruise ship passengers and has t-shirts and beach chair vendors on cruise ship days. Check before you make the journey to White Bay Beach/

“White Bay Beach, Peter Island”

On the south, or 'back' side of Peter Island, a calm and usually deserted crescent of white sandy beach reached by private boat or a hike over the hill from the nearby beach resort, from where guests come to get away too. Good snorkelling. Read more...

Paradise Beach

Myself and my husband recently went to the Caribbean for our honeymoon and visited this beach for a relaxing romantic day . All I can say is WOW . Pure white sands , swaying palm trees and warm calm water we certainly wont be forgetting this visit in a hurry . We stayed in an Aruba rental villa close by and it was outstanding . I would highly recommended this venue to anyone absolute perfection .

Nice post. In British Virgin Islands there are many beaches One of them is the White Bay Beach at the Peter Island here, it is the fifth largest Island in British Virgin Islands. Any month you can visit all time its best. In White Bay Beach you can experience Scuba diving or snorkeling. White Bay Beach is a best with family vacation.

White Bay Beach

White Bay Beach is a Caribbean dream of white sand, blue waters, and friendly island culture.

Protected by reef, the waters are great for swimming and popular for boating. The laid-back beach is perfect for fun in the sun, whether you'd like to sit back and sip on a Painkiller, a famous drink from a local bar, or explore the area on ATV. At night, Caribbean music and dancing fills the air as the beach turns into a sandy dance floor.
