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.

We moored overnight and snorkeled near the shore. Lots of colorful fish. The restaurant is very classy.... Not the typical Caribbean dive bar. Worth the visit.

Well off the island is an area call the "Indians" which are a set of large rocks jutting out of the water. You can moor your boat and do some snorkeling here. It is a popular spot and has some wonderful fan coral. There are lots of pretty fish near the rocks but the variety was limited. This did have... More

Visited Norman Island for one day while we were sailing in the BVI. Had a great meal on the beach! Very swanky, extremely lush, not much to do but loved the food and drinks! Great place to moor for the night.

We arrived by motor boat and tied up at 11.45 which fortunate as we had the pick of spots on the beach. Closer to lunch time many boats and a ferry arrived so it was busier. We enjoyed swimming in clear water and it suited those who wanted to swim our into the busy or those who want to keep... More

We've been coming to Pirate's at Norman Island for over 20 years, and have seen it go from a casual beach hangout to a very sophisticated restaurant. I guess the days of the casual beach scene are gone for most of the BVIs (except for Foxy's), but the new restaurant has very good food and service, and it's a nice... More

We have been there many times 7 or 8 maybe over the year's and could not wait to take new sailing friends there. But it was NOT a pleasant experience no friendly wait staff there any longer. Service was not very GOOD and the drinks were small in size but high in Cost - 10 dollars each!!!

We've eaten here two times now on day trips to snorkeling, diving, etc. Its not as crowded as other places! The food is really good. Service is also good. It's truly beautiful here....both the restaurant and the beach.

The harbor ( The Pirates Bight ) is one of the best harbors in the BVI's it is large and very protected. At the very end is a great beach Restaurant, The Pirates Bight. Rebuilt after a fire, it is a wonderful place to start or end a trip to the BVI's. The food is reasonable and the quality is... More
