We had a brief visit to Norman Island for lunch at Pirates Bight (pricey but good food). After lunch, our charter took us to snorkel in the bay and it was incredible. My husband and sons voted it the best snorkeling of our entire week (we stayed on St. John). We were the only people in the water, the coral... More

a lot of moorings willy T and pirates bight on either side of the bay plus very close to the Indians and the caves (caves are way overrated in my eyes) for snorkeling. you can spend a whole afternoon there or the evening of your on a catamaran.

We stopped in here on a day long adventure through some beautiful locations (Indians, Baths, Caves, etc). This was the PERFECT place for lunch. Outdoor seating so we could wear our bathing suits in. Great restrooms. Good menu selection. We had six in our group and everyone walked away happy with their meal. It was perfect! Not certain if there... More

The Bight always carried a reputation as uninhabited and uninhibited. The days of anchoring near the Willie T and facing unknown consequences for so doing are fading as the B.V.I. undergoes a transformation from a destination for skilled sailors on their own boats to faux sailors on giant crewed Catamarans. Nowhere in the B.V.I. is this more evident than the... More

The Bight has a reputation for topless cougars dancing the night away and nothing else. Although this happens at the Willy T’s when the sun goes down the island has so much more to offer during the day. We only ate lunches and dinners on the boat so I cannot comment on the restaurants but Norman Island actually has over... More

We stayed in Kelly's cove for $30 which was collected at our boat. The cove was tranquil and located around the corner from Willy T's so we heard none of the noise. There was a beautiful beach you could snorkel to and there is a great view of the sunset from here. Arrive early if you want a mooring as... More

This a not-to-be-missed place! There is a ferry that leaves Hannah Bay(near Nanny Cay) 3 times a day and for a 15 min. ride you are in a glorious place. Because of the deep cove, or "bight", the water is quiet, perfect for snorkeling or just using your noodle! Snorkeling is the best, too. Turtles and rays swim about as... More

After seven years of coming to USVI and chartering over to BVI, this is our first trip to Pirate's Bight. What a great place with a wonderful vibe. Good is very good. View is amazing. Very relaxing change from other nearby places.
