Beef Island is an island in the British Virgin Islands that is located to the east of Tortola, and the two islands are connected by the Queen Elizabeth Bridge. Beef Island is the site of the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport (IATA code EIS), the main commercial airport that serves Tortola and the rest of the British Virgin Islands.
Trellis Bay is a short walk east of the airport. Trellis Bay is a small town (market, restaurant, coffee shop, local crafts) and beach. Long Bay is west of the airport.
At the farthest southeast end of Trellis Bay, in the vicinity of the Beef Island Guest House & de Loose Mongoose, there's a good snorkeling spot with patches of coral and a lot of sea grass.
There' s little or no boat traffic here, making it much safer for snorkelers. Sea tortoises and rays can be seen, amongst other critters that inhabit the sea grass areas.
You could see everything from Aragorn's own metal sculptures to other artists' works such as handmade baskets & pottery, hand-printed t-shirts, and even lovely small art prints if you can't afford the larger originals at Beef Island. And a lot more of one's interest.
You can also take lessons in windsurfing at Trellis Bay. Trellis Bay is fun for people-watching, windsurfer watching, and just absorbing a bit of the local color. Artists have their studios strung along the bay, with various fun little cafes that feature local foods in between and a cybercafe for Internet junkies. Making it a fun stay at Beef Island. This place is one of Virgin Islands' finest at is marking its name in the globe as one of the most visited places in the face of the Caribbean.
