I was in the BVI for a day-trip with an Island Time center console last week. I was snorkeling the Indians and saw a lot of boats in there. The owner said the beach place re-opened and they liked it better than before...pretty sure she was referring to the food.

We did not go this winter (we did last winter) and were saddened to hear of the fire. I understand they constructed a temporary facility almost immediately, so it should be open, even if not permanent yet. It would not surprise me, if reconstruction was permanent, however.

The original beach shack was a toss up with Willy T's IMO, but the new place was so good, I really think it was putting a hurt to WTs.

Does the same guy own WTs? He owns the entire island, but have a suspicion he doesn't own his competition. Not sure. I wonder if WTs had matches aboard? :)

We were there this December(2013). They had a temporary bar/restaurant open to the left of the original building. The temporary ( now permanent) bar was wonderful. A real improvement ( not to say we didn't have fun many days at Pirates in the past).(that I can remember)
I do see where they have opened the new restaurant...I haven't seen it but if anything like the new bar it will be sure to please.
Have fun and enjoy.

Last month the construction process wasn't far beyond foundation and scaffolding, so I do not think that the new Pirate's is open; but the temporary restaurant and bar is superior to most watering holes in the BVI and I had a very tasty dinner there. It is worth visiting in any case.

From the pictures I see on the Internet and the "scuttlebutt" on other web sites ( hope that doesn't break posting rules of GUIs site) there is definitely a new Pirates on Norman Island.
It IS beautiful ... Can't wait to get back there

Ya know of course that Willie T's - the T's did not stand for 'thorton's, It stood for the t-shirt you earned when you showed your T's.

Good to see I can get a 13 dollar cheeseburger again.

BTW - When I was there I asked about the source of the fire and it turns out to have been started by a linseed oil soaked rag!
