Tucked away on Tortola’s East End, Josiah’s Bay is one of the best surf spots in the British Virgin Islands, with consistent waves and inviting ocean temperatures that hover around 80 degrees year round. The passionate locals behind Surf School BVI make it easy for visitors to check out the breaks for themselves—even first-timers. This one-stop surf shop at Josiah’s Bay offers a wide range of rentals (longboards, shortboards, bodyboards, snorkel gear) as well as beginner and intermediate surf lessons suitable for any age. Lessons begin with basic form and ocean safety instruction on shore; before long you’ll be paddling out to catch your first wave. We suspect you’ll agree: It’s nothing short of sublime.
