When in VG, I always go here for drinks. The setting is right on the bay and you can see the Tarpon swimming nearby. It was empty in late Aug, as were other places, but other then Coco Maya next door not many on the...More

Great location on the water, we were able to see the tarpon swimming under the dock. We could even feed them as well as the seagulls who were looking for a free meal as well. Menu is limited but the snapper special was delicious, including...More

Almost a dive, but teeming with local color. We sat right at the bar overlooking the beach. I was impressed that they served "Island Hoppin' IPA" - because ales seem to be a rarity in the BVIs. Good fried seafood.

This open air restaurant is directly on the water -- not the beach -- the water. You enter by walking across a wooden dock. You can see tarpon and other fish swimming in the clear waters from your table. I imagine kids would love this...More
