Savannah Bay

Half-mile long white beach, usually secluded and not crowded.

Savannah Bay

Savannah Bay is actually three different bays: Savannah, Pond and Tetor Bays. Anchoring is usually done in Pond Bay in the middle. Giorgio’s Table Restaurant is on the Point with a small dinghy dock below.

Use Caution

Savannah Bay is extremely inviting with its one quarter mile long white sand beach behind the reef. There are a couple of places where one can carefully anchor for the night if the seas are calm and not breaking over the reef. Be careful of anchoring on a coral head, or within swinging room of a coral head in case the winds shift. The coral heads are great for snorkeling, often a short distance from your boat.

This anchorage is not recommended for an overnight stay unless the weather is reliably stable. A significant swell can penetrate the reef in northerly weather.

Savannah Bay Overnight

For years I have cruised right by Savannah Bay and admired the long white sandy beach inside the reef. It looked inviting, but a glance at the charts showed that it was pretty shallow, with a narrow entrance, and my charter company had it on the “Do not go there.” list. One year several of us had catamarans and the seas were calm. We carefully proceeded inside the reef using the paint mark on the rock for guidance o! the stern. What started out as a day stop was so nice, we spent the night anchored just o! the beach under a full moon and a light breeze. For snorkeling we just fell o! the swim platform and swam to one of the nearby coral heads. BVI Heaven!—MB

Now that shallow-draft multi-hulls have become more popular with charterers, there has been a significant increase in visitors to this beautiful beach and bay.
