Visitor reviews of Cane Garden Bay surf break

    I have spent many years on Tortola. The tourist industry is number one is number for the island economy. That being said the infrastructure is not well enough designed to accommodate the influx of day tourists from cruse ships. The travellers are bussed to spots like Cane Garden Bay for a day trip to find a pristine beach now lined with chairs from the islands protected vendors. There ware no toilet facilities for many years however the new facility now installed does not completely treat its material. There is a large pipe that dumped it's waste forming a plume. I witnessed this from my rented room overlooking the bay. This was done possibly on the going tide or a timed process.
    We do not go back to Tortola for many reasons. The older residents we found were wonderful, however the younger people are less accommodating.
