Cooten Bay, Tortola – one of the most pristine bays and views in the Caribbean

Cooten Bay is one of the most beautiful bays in all of the Caribbean. The location to build AnaCapri Estate was based on this incredible view. From a single location you can see many bays on Tortola, Guana Island, Great Camanoe, The Dogs, Virgin Gorda, and Anegada. The mix of white sand beaches, rocky cliffs, natural islands, and open Atlantic Ocean is stunning.

Cooten Bay is just a few minutes’ walk down the hill from AnaCapri Estate, just follow the road. The water is crystal clear, and the breeze is so refreshing. The beach is a pebble and rock beach, and to the right about twenty yards you’ll discover an old ruins up in the vegetation. Go exploring, find the cannon that still is positioned to protect the place from invaders from the sea, and think about what life must have been like when the place was alive with people.
