as well as the British Virgin Islands of Sandy Cay, Green Cay and Jost Van
Dyke. Within the next two years, the property will feature its first
swimming pool for guests forgoing the short walk or drive to the nearest
beach. The property is a mere 10- minute walk down hill to Long Bay Beach
and a number of restaurants and bars. It’s also a 10-minute drive to four
other beaches. Many Turtle Dove Lodge guests enjoy their breakfast on
