BVI Holidays

Islands – Beef Island

Home to the small airport that serves the BVI and connected to Tortola by the Queen Elizabeth bridge, Beef Island is a great anchorage for visiting yachts.  Sip a cocktail at de Loose Mongoose beach bar and restaurant on the white sand beach at Trellis Bay, visit the unusual shops, boutiques and art gallery.

One of the most memorable and spectacular events on Beef Island is the full moon party when Aragorn (a well known artist) sets alight his giant metal fire balls which punctuate the night sky. Brightly costumed Moko Jumbies – the local stilt dancers – perform, as do the awe inspiring fire dancers who wow onlookers with their poi shows. Calypso music plays well into the night, Caribbean fare is served and local artisans wares are on sale, making this party a one-stop shop for good times.

The Trellis Bay Market supplies visiting yachtsmen and women with everything they need for their sailing charter and serves cold beer and island food.

Sitting on the dock of the bay with a Melon Colada purchased from de Loose Mongoose beach bar/restaurant is one of my favourite pastimes.  The perfect spot to while away a couple of hours….just doing nothing.
