JOLLY ROGER: Located near the West End ferries, this nautical, breezy establishment offers International and West Indian specials, pizza, burgers and conch fritters. Jolly Roger is well named because Sopers Hole, or West End, was home to many pirates of the 1700-1715 times. This was the perfect concealed anchorage to hide away, where pirates could clean the bottom of their big vessels. They would take the pirate ship close to the side of the beach and roll the ship onto her side, then the crew scraped barnacles off the bottom. A sentry was posted 900 feet above as a lookout. When one side of the vessel was done, they turned the yacht around and rolled the other side. A clean ship’s bottom meant speed, and pirates need as much speed as possible. A good Caribbean feel can be enjoyed at the Jolly Roger. Open daily 8AM-12 Midnight; Late night menu available. Credit cards accepted. 284-495-4559.

RHYMER’S: Beach bar on Cane Garden Bay. Menu items include fish, ribs, conch and West Indian specialties. Rhymer’s is one of the most popular restaurants in Tortola because they do a good job, but it is location right on the big Cane Garden Bay’s white beach. Quito Rhymer has his own band to sing Reggae music, so you can listen to Quito Rhymer sing his Caribbean music all night long.

LITTLE DIX BAY HOTEL INTERNATIONAL: Dine on the spacious terrace beneath a dramatic pavilion roof; Dress code applies. The Beach Grill serves an a la carte lunch. Accessible by boat only. One of my favorite restaurants. Dress is formal; service is impeccable. The cuisine is perfect, and it is expensive. The wine tastes better at Little Dix Bay Hotel. I had approached the manager and said if I brought my guests for dinner, could I anchor my catamaran within their bay for the night and the answer was YES, Captain Andrew, you are welcome. This went on for 2 years until the locals complained. I was the only one allowed to do this and they did not like it. My guests got the best as always.

There are no roads to the Bitter End; it is a unique resort built in different stages. The restaurant is on the beach between coconut palms; the only way here is by yacht. Open daily.

WILFRED’S POMATO POINT: Overlooking a spectacular beach, this is the place on Anegada to see the “green flash” while enjoying local dishes. This unique restaurant is accessible by boat only. No restaurant can be built like this one in America, so if you wish for a restaurant experience that is totally different from anything you have ever had in your life, then make Wilfred’s a must-do stop. This is the only spot where we have seen the "green flash" 5 times. When the horizon is clear of clouds and the sun disappears behind the horizon, the last quarter changes color to lime green. The yellow of the sun and the blue of the water make this change.

This is the one and only building that can be seen in this area. Wilfred built an A-frame home but left off the entire front wall of this house. As you walk inside, you see tables and chairs for seating. On the far left is a huge bar boasting every drink possible and on the opposite side of the seating lounge is a room dedicated to artifacts Wilfred has collected over the years including spoons, buttons of uniforms, typewriters, guns, knives, plates and dishes. This are is Wilfred’s museum. This ia an "honor bar" during the day as no one is at the house, so if you feel like having a drink, hop behind the bar, take whatever you want, and simply leave the cash. Yes, Wilfred has enjoyed having this honor bar for many years now. There is no one to steal, and all of us are honorable people after all. Caribbean catamarans, Caribbean luxury power boats and sail boats all stop in at Wilfred’s. Open daily for lunch and dinner; call for reservations by 4PM. 495-9466
