Making my first trip to Tortola in March. Can anyone recommend a shore excursion that would make this stop memorable

Jump in the bed of a pickup and ask for a ride to the other side of the island (I forget which beach, will find out and edit), and then hang on!

Find some way to get to Soggy Dollar Bar. Now that's memorable!

Hitch a ride to Cane Garden Bay. Prettiest beach in the Carib!!!

There is a small straw market there, a little wagon/shack-like structure selling alcoholic beverages right on the beach, men selling drinks in coconuts, and several small ma-pa restaurants (table/chairs sit right in the sand) with very modest prices.

The scenery at this beach is awesome. This beach is actually a cove with the green mountains of tortola on three sides and the open water on the fourth with yachts, sailboats, etc. in the background. Very serene.
