Nanny Cay is a busy marina, so if you like to look at sail boats and some pretty motor boats, stop by. There are a few small shops that are quaint and a couple of restaurants. We ate at Peg Legs and friends ate at Mulligans. Food is good, service is definitely on island time. There is a beach, a... More

We spent a sunny afternoon on Nanny Cay. We rented one beach chair ( $5.00) and placed it under a thatched umbrella. Very nice to have some shade for family members who had too much sun the day before. It was a nice spot for snorkeling by the rocks. The bay was quite calm which allowed for some paddle boarding....

Menu has changed upstairs, but beach grill now open. Food was good, Caesar salad and beef carpaccio, fish and chips...good. OPtion is to eat on the beach with more casual food. Good option

Nice selection of breakfast foods, coffee available and should be free after first cup...of course no more than three cups. The cups are small so I needed more and had to pay extra. Stingy...but the food was good and the waiter was on his game that morning, good service.

the hotel room was ok, but good enough. Roosters everywhere crowing at the crack of dawn. Great bar inside and out. The barbecue was good too. Peg Legs was their finer restaurant and it was just ok but a lot of fun. I'd go back.

This is how you expect the BVI to be. Very nice marina with good service nice restaurant, pool, private beach with very safe swimming, beach bar and a good store. Good shelter and plenty of mooring buoys. Mooring on the pontoon is free for the first hour which is unusual in these parts but was a bit pricy overnight at... More

We only spent a few hours here, but the beach is stunning and a bar selling drinks and snacks. Water dips a lot once you are in so be careful.

A good stop if you are hungry or just want to walk around a little. There are a few restaurants, beaches, and a supermarket. Not a destination per se, but come if you are in the area.

fantastic one-stop location for BVI. A self-contained community that just keeps getting better. Useful Riteway store, large chandlery, full service boat-yard, great coffee shop, great restaurant and convenient beach, bar and pool. The only downside... its been getting crowded in the marina but they are doubling the size by building a second marina. Hopefully that will create capacity and improve... More
