We visited several years ago and we were thrilled to see the renovations completed! The new bar/restaurant area is bright, clean and beautiful. The beach is pristine! The service was excellent. It is tucked away - not over crowded and simply amazing. Make this a stop!

We were so fortunate to be able to spend several hours at The Bight on Norman Island. We rented a 31' boat and cruised around the BVI for a day. We were so surprised to find The Bight and really enjoyed the food, service and most of all the setting. This island is where "screensaver" photos for your computer come... More

Pirates at the Bight raised from the ashes of Billy Bones is a great new large colonial style restaurant at the Bight - superb location, warm welcome, great menu, super family friendly, pushes all the buttons - still crazy after all these years.......loved it.

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.
