Public / Private Beaches in the BVI

Hello everyone,

First post here, so hope that that's the right forum section Just wanted to post a question for the community:

I am planning on heading to the BVI in the spring (first bare-boat charter in the south, yay!), and after reading a good number of cruising guides and other sources, I am still left wondering as to how accessible are "private" beaches in the BVI?

Cruising guide (Scott's) seems to suggest that you should stay away. BVI tourism web-site says nothing of the sort, but has beach descriptions, directions for getting there etc.

Can cruisers use (e.g. tie a hammock somewhere & spend the day) these private beaches (e.g. west Deadman's bay beach (Peter Island), Trunk Bay beach (Virgin Gorda), etc), or are they really restricted to hotel guests & adjacent property owners?

Thanks!
