Though you wouldn't know it with all the snow and ice in the Northeastern US, this week marks the beginning of spring. Spring break, beach season and the imminent start of summer are just around the corner. If April is the new June, we better get you prepped early, so this week we'll be looking at the sandy strands that while beautiful, should come with a warning label. Know about a Killer Beach we haven't mentioned? Help your fellow beach goers out and adventure seekers out--let us know about it.
Lambert Beach :: Map
The British Virgin Islands are the sailboat capital of the world, with plenty of snow bunnies helming yachts through the islands' calm waters. But the BVI are also rightly famous for their sugary sand beaches and easy snorkeling and diving. Unless of course we're talking about Lambert Beach.
Also known by its seductive alias--Elizabeth Beach--this half-moon-shaped strand lures in sun and surf lovers with its easily-accessible yet rarely crowded location. Once suckered in like bees to honey, swimmers find themselves facing a formidable undertow. Ocean currents are stronger than any swimmers we happen to know, so make sure you take a gander at the conditions before splashing in to cool off.
How to get there:
Once you get to Road Town and Tortola, the easiest way is just to hop a cab, which should take about 15 minutes. Driving yourself, head down Blackburn Highway until you reach the East End Police Station, then turn inland. Just remember: This is a British Virgin Island, so you'll be driving on the left. Good luck!
