We stopped at Bight Bay to eat lunch after some snorkeling at the caves. The resort sent picnic lunches with us so we didn't purchase food at Pirates Bight but I would try it out next time. Not sure about Willy T's. It looked pretty calm the day we were there but I have heard a few warnings about it.

You will love the snorkling/dive off the island and especially the Norman Caves with the fish found only in the caves. The BIGHT restaurant is so refreshing and great after the recent major upgrade. The food is really fresh and all in our party loved it = my wife and I and our boat captain. Interesting the boat captains get... More

These are two snorkel spots you must not miss. They are great! We saw the most sea life and diversity at these two spots. Make sure you plan to see these two.

We had a fantastic stay at Norman Island. The snorkeling at the Caves was probably the best on our trip. The waitress at Pirate's Bight hustled the entire time we were there. She was so attentive and helpful (especially as we were parched after getting a little lost on our hike around the island - some signage on the hike... More

This was our third BVI bareboat charter and our third time visiting Norman Island. As always, the Caves never disappoint. On our previous charters, we opted to eat at Pirates mostly because our boys were younger and we didn't want to expose them to anything that might not have been appropriate for their ages at the Willy T. So, now... More

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
