Norman Island is the home of The Caves, The Indians, Pirate’s Bight and the world famous Willy T’s!
The Caves at Treasure Point were made famous by Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1883 novel Treasure Island.
“And I was going to sea myself, to sea in a schooner…bound for an unknown island, and to seek for buried treasure!”
Snorkel into any one of the three caves and feel the presence of pirates! Be sure to ask Sam for the dive light so you can light up the caves and underwater walls to enjoy all of its booty.
Next to Norman Island is a formation of four rocks jutting high out of the water known as The Indians because they resemble a feathered headdress. This is a great deep water snorkel with an underwater swim-through, if you dare.
The William Thornton II, affectionately called the Willy T, is a 98-foot schooner that was converted into a bar/restaurant and is anchored in the Bight of Norman Island. Even though it is known for its wild nights, during the day the Willy T is fairly tame and a fun spot to eat lunch or have a cold drink in the shade.
On the beach is Pirate’s Bight Restaurant. This is a great place to spend the day. Pirate’s Bight is a naturally protected bay. It has a shallow sandy bottom with gentle, lapping waves, perfect for children. The swim area is completely marked off by no-boat buoys too. Enjoy food and drinks from the restaurant along with bathroom facilities. They have a 3 foot high Jenga beach game and also kayaks for rent. Snorkeling is perfect here so be sure to grab some snorkel gear off the boat and make your way along the shore.
Remember, the British Virgin Islands is a foreign country & requires proof of citizenship for entry. You must have a passport to enter the BVI & also to return to the USVI.
