Our first stop during this sailing trip was Norman Island, and we decided already then that we would probably come back at the end of the trip when we’ve sailed around Tortola. And here we are!
Why we like this place? Pirate atmosphere (they even fire a real – but small – cannon every day at Happy Hour), wonderful nature, great snorkeling, a small but very kid-friendly beach and really friendly staff at the restaurant – they’re now on first name basis with our kids and seem genuinely happy to see us back!
We’ve had a very nice and relaxing time here, after a hard and wet crossing from Jost van Dyke with very strong winds and big waves. Some of us (no names but we can call him.. Henrik!) were drenched all the way through to the underwear. The kids were delighted, every time I got showered they laughed long and hard! And when they got showered they laughed even harder. Note: I got drenched repeatedly while standing at the helm, and the boat is 41 feet long, so the waves were big! Later we heard on the VHF about boats in distress, one of them lost the rudder on along the same route, so we were glad to have made it safely.
