Norman Island

The southernmost of the BVI, Norman Island is a must-visit location within the Virgin Islands chain. This small island is the alleged inspiration behind Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel Treasure Island. To this day, rumours persist of treasure waiting to be found in the islands various caves, hidden bays and wrecks. While these rumours are likely only myths and legends, they serve well to highlight the rich and exciting pirate history of these Virgin Islands. The Bight, the most popular bay for mooring and is home to the beach-side bar and restaurant Pirates Bight. The water-level caves located just west outside of The Bight make for some of the best snorkeling the islands have to offer; this is an experience like no other.
