Norman & Peter

To the south of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands are the islands of Norman and Peter.  Locally known as Treasure Island, Norman Island is believed to have inspired the Robert Lewis Stenvenson classic, Treasure Island.  While Peter Island was where marooned pirates sought to seek shelter.

 

 

Norman Island is where the party (complete with "Pirates") at Willy T's can be found.  A floating bar and restaurant, Willy T's in The Bight is the place to let loose!  A quieter underwater world can be found outside The Bight.  Here, moorings place you right in the middle of wonderful snorkel spots including The Indians and The Caves which are reported to still hold pirate's booty.

Peter Island is the largest privately owned island (by the Van Andel family, co-owners of Amway) in the BVI and the 5th largest of the 60 islands.  The island's largest beach, Deadman's Bay, is open to day boaters and has a bar and restaurant.  It is said that Deadman's Bay got its name after marooned pirates who drowned trying to swim to Peter Island from neighboring Dead Chest Island.
