    How far from port is the beach in the TT68 tour in Tórtola? Which beach is? I love a full day in the beach relaxing and I can’t find other with more hrs of beach fun like in St Thomas ST61. Starting to consider a third party. Help

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Lina!

    Only a few short weeks until you hear your name announced, step onboard and join Captain Mickey.  I am sure the excitement is growing as you make your final plans and head out to sea!  There are so many Port Adventures offered and different experiences that often my family ends up flipping a coin on our "cruise planning nights" to decide which one to take.  I'm starting to think my son has a two headed coin as he always seems to win!

    The Beach Express (TT68) in Tortola is a basic beach Port Adventure with transportation back and forth to the beach on Beef Island.  The beach is just over 10 miles away and takes about 20 minutes to travel via bus.  This is a great option if you are looking to quickly plant your toes in the sand for a while and then head back to the ship to enjoy the rest of the day.

    If you are looking for a lengthier Port Adventure in Tortola, you may want to consider Tour to Gorda (TT23).  It requires more travel time to the destination on the way out, as a ferry takes you through the Sir Frances Drake Channel, but gives you three hours at the beach increasing your sand and surf time.  It also includes some guided tour stops and the opportunity to visit the famous Tortola Bathes.  This Port Adventure is very scenic as it is a sight-seeing nature tour and beach tour with some considerable time at Devil's Bay Beach.

    A full beach day is possible on your own as well.  Booking through Disney Cruise Line however does have perks; negotiated fees and currency exchange, adjusted tour times if port arrival times change and fully refunded Port Adventure fees for itinerary changes.

    I hope you find yourself basking in the sun on the beach soon Lina!  Bon voyage!  Angie
