Tortola is the largest of these islands and the BVI capital, thanks to an important yacht harbour in Road Town. The north shore of the island is dotted with a series of bays and beaches offering a good diversity of surfing locations. Capoon’s Bay, a.k.a. Little Apple Bay, holds a perfectly symmetrical A-frame reef that should provide a buzz, as does the mushroom tea sometimes served at Bomba’s Shack, just in front of the break. While getting high is not everyone’s cup of tea, a user friendly, walling wave that can handle big swells and remain unaffected by the trades, most definitely is!

Like the whole island, a little inconsistent and sometimes crowded.
