Re: Pirates bight at norman island reopens after “make over”

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.

Re: Pirates bight at norman island reopens after “make over”

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?

Re: Pirates bight at norman island reopens after “make over”

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.

Re: Pirates bight at norman island reopens after “make over”

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.

Re: Pirates bight at norman island reopens after “make over”

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.

Re: Pirates bight at norman island reopens after “make over”

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!
