Description: With a reputation that far exceeds its modest size, Saba Rock boasts not only a famous over the water lounge bar and restaurant, but also an 8 bedroom hotel, 10 slip marina, gift shop, gardens and sun deck. Saba Rock Restaurant is one of the more respected establishments in the British Virgin Islands, offering both a lounge menu and a dinner menu with a wide selection of seafood (including local conch and lobster in season), salads and grills. The boutique hotel, which is consistently ranked among the top hotels in the BVI, is accessible via a 10 minute ferry ride from Virgin Gorda. Alternatively, you can arrive on your own boat and take a slip in the Marina. The Saba Rock ferry is available to pick up guests from any dock in the North Sound, simply phone ahead (1 284 495 7711) or hail us on VHF channel 16 to make arrangements. Reservations in advance are recommended for the Hotel, Marina and Restaurant. We look forward to your visit!

Reviewed July 16, 2012

but the view is lovely and the conch fritters were very good. We enjoyed watching the fish who were attracted to the underwater lights (some big ones!)

“Saba Rock is a cool place for happy hour”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

We went over for happy hour one night and stopped the boat for a drink one day. It is a cool place. Very small but it is what it is. They run a boat over to get you if you need them too. There happy hour specials are hard to beat and many of the people that worked at the resorts were there on there time off having drinks. It was fun.

“Breezes to die for!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Loved hammocks in back. Kids loved tarpin feeding activity with kitchen scraps. Beautiful views. Clean and tidy bar and restaurant.
Just a day visit while cruising, no overnight stay.
Feels exotic and really is alone on a rock/small island.

“Good location”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

This was a fun location to stop by but we were a little disappointed with the limited lunch menu. We were getting tired of conch fritters and fish and chips.

“Excellent food and fun watching the big fish”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

We moored our sailboat at Saba and went ashore for happy hour. We stayed for dinner and got a table by the water. At dusk they turn on underwater lights and big tarpon, a shark and lots of other fish showed up. It made for a very interesting and fun evening.
They typically run specials on rooms, so if you need a night ashore be sure to check for the current rate.
