Nice place to spend an afternoon. We had a charter and stopped here for lunch and a cocktail. If you are into shopping this island is not for you. Stick your toes in the sand and chill.

Although the Bight was closed this spot offers a great area of protection with a dock and plenty of mooring balls. Because of the general direction of the wind in the BVI's, this is almost totally protected. The willy T was open, and the jumps from the top deck, always fun!

Lots of mooring balls available for the night here. Went in to the island for dinner, and the food, service is very good! It is open air but they have many fans to keep the air moving. The sunset was spectacular! There is a nice gift shop with all price levels. Instead of heading back to the boat the group... More

wow this is really awesome place.the bight is an excellent overnight anchorage with funneled wind, plenty of moorings, and lots of options. the willy t is a great, unique floating bar for late night partying, there's great hiking on the island and the snorkeling/diving in the area is outstanding.

We remember Billy Bones and were hesitant about the Pirates Bight. HOWEVER- the service was very friendly and …well….awesome! Much cleaner that BB and sterile, but that is probably because of the new building after the fire. Great conch fritters and friendly staff with easy access beach for the kids.

Just returned from a sailing vacation in BVI. Was my first visit to the Bight. Moorings in harbor were good and is just a short ride in by dinghy. The food was excellent-the lobster Jambalaya (pasta dish with huge chunks of lobster-not a stew which one would think) was one of my favorite dishes ever!! People were having a good... More

The bight at Norman Island is a great place for a first or last night's stay if you are chartering a yacht out of Tortola. There are many many mooring balls and it is an easy sail to or from Tortola. It is protected from the prevailing winds and has many options for dinner and drinks. See my review for... More

We moored in The Bight just around the point from the Caves and dinghied into Pirates Bight Bar where Romeo didn’t know the kitchen was open despite it being 10 ft/ behind him. We finally got some conch fritters and onion rings with Pirates Punch, Goombay Smashes and Painkillers.
