The British Virgin Islands’ Norman Island Is Open Again

One of the most popular stops in the British Virgin Islands has reopened in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

Norman Island’s Pirates Bight officially reopened this weekend, serving a full menu of food and drink, from salt fish fritters to marinated kale salad to its Pirates Burger.

Even better? Every patron gets a complimentary “Pirates Irma Punch” just for showing up.

“The BVI community has been through a lot over the past couples of months and the management and staff of Norman Island have been working hard to reopen our doors to all of our patrons,” the establishment said in a statement.

Norman Island also said that complimentary ferry services were also coming soon.

Its the latest sign of what is becoming a rapid tourism recovery in the British Virgin Islands.
