Explore the Norman Island Caves

Added by Josh Currie

The Norman Island Caves are great to swim through and explore. Not to mention the great snorkeling and cliff jumping.  

First, I must say that the only way to get here is by boat. But that is the case for the majority of the destinations in the British Virgin Islands. Apparently the legend goes that the pirate, Blackbeard, after doing his pirate duties, would store his treasures in the caves. Though many people every day swim through the caves, I don't think any treasure has been found for quite some time. 

There are 4 different caves a long the cliffs all different sizes. One cave you can swim back into far enough that it becomes pitch black. Another has two different entrances ,one from the beach and the other from the water. There are also spots a long the cliff that you can climb up and get a nice 30-45 foot cliff jump in if you're feeling adventurous!

This was a great spot to spend a couple hours exploring and snorkeling around!

Great place to snorkel

If you go by dingy definelty bring something to help you get back in, my parents had a hard time. If you want to avoid big crowds, go in the morning and it'll be less busy.
