The Best Little Airport Lounge in the Caribbean


By Alexander Britell and Guy Britton

One of our favorite airport lounges in the Caribbean, well, isn’t at the airport at all.

And it isn’t exactly a lounge either.

But that’s what makes this tiny beach shack on Tortola’s Trellis Bay such a lovable, enjoyable place to wait for your flight.

The drill is simple: check in for your flight at Tortola’s Beef Island Airport, take the two-minute walk to the sand at Trellis Bay, and plop down on one of the bar stools at Marche at Trellis.

The great little cafe has warm service, a cool sea breeze and an impressively broad selection of libations, from rum to surprisingly excellent espresso.

There’s also a host of British Virgin Islands food, from great local stews to a delicious fish and chips.

It’s the place to wait out your flight from Tortola — or the perfect place to unwind after you arrive.
