4 hours ago Arrived today [by islandgem]
I arrived this afternoon and settled into Beachside Villas for the next three weeks. Lots of activities planned so may hold the trip report until arrival back home. It will be a different vacation for me this time so lots of adjustments for sure. Happy to be in a place where we made wonderful memories together, but many sad moments too.

Yesterday at 08:28 PM In my travels...... [by pat]
Over the past few days we’ve enjoyed breakfast at the Yacht club but alas, no bridge opening when we’ve been there and big yachts going in or out though we did see some later in the day in Simpson Bay.

We had dinner Tuesday night at Mary’s Boon. We had always thought it a reasonable choice in the past but dinner the other night left me not a fan. The waiter was very pleasant but he really should have advised us it was poker night and the players would be arriving any minute. They did and it got very loud.

Yesterday my DH ran to the store to grab some cold cuts for lunch. I started to get concerned because it was taking him so long. Lo and behold - he came through the door with a smile on his face and the cold cuts in one hand and a lunch to go package in the other. He had seen the ships heading into town early that morning and had heard people talking about Rosie only doing ribs on ship days so he stopped by and grabbed a double order of her ribs to go fresh of the Barbie. Yummy lunch - who wants ham and cheese when the other is available?!

Last night we had dinner at Vesna Taverna. It was very enjoyable and the waitresses there are all so nice. John had salmon and I had pan sautéed grouper and we both had snails and all were very good.

Today we headed out to Friars Bay with a quick detour up the Towers driveway again. The workers are up on the roof - it looked like three or four of them and while the corrugated seems to be covering all the roof we still couldn’t see the pool side. Still a lot to be done but at least they seem to be doing something.

Lunch today was at Friars Bay Beach Cafe and it was delicious. John had a cold lobster salad plate and I had their Boef (Sp en Francais?)carpaccio and they were both incredibly good. We even had desserts - chocolate mousse for DH and I had a Nutella crepe. Yummy, both.

For those who might go there, the dirt road in closest to Grande Case is a nightmare. Best to come in the original route past Gutside per staff at FBBC. Also, no cc - cash only and water shoes are a good idea near FBBC.

Yesterday at 06:56 PM Current Ferry Situation / Water Taxi Options [by isuee94]
Looking for options to get 6 of us from STT to Tortola for a charter in February. The last two couples are getting in at 4:00pm. From what I can see, the last ferry leaves from Red Hook at 5:00pm so that's probably not an option.

Any other ferries currently operating or are there any water taxi's that aren't super expensive?

Yesterday at 04:53 PM What to expect?? [by lbos]
We are due to arrive next week for 10 days on a 51 foot PC. We were last there in 2009 and it was breathtaking. The other half of our group have never been and are anxious to see what all the buzz is about, however I'm wondering about the mass devastation of last year's hurricanes. Is there visible damage? Is the beauty of the BVIs still there? Just wondering what we're in for when we arrive.

Yesterday at 04:13 PM Karakter Beach Bar [by megamania]
Hello there. I googled this beach bar to see if there is a schedule when one could expect live music. We have visited this place at least once on every visit, but have never heard live music there. When I googled it, I was unable to see any info on when we could expect live music to happen. Does anyone have a link or any information on this? It is beautiful there during the day for sure. Parking, as we all know is an issue, lol. Wondering if the live music only happens if you are there for dinner (6pm-10pm)?

Yesterday at 03:52 PM Beach updates [by crmoores]
Looking forward to returning and would love to have this one thread where we can see the current condition (and any updates) of the beaches on Tortola, VG and Jost, what beach bars/restaurants and hotels are open (or are still working toward that), and the off-the beach snorkel conditions at beaches like Brewers, Smuggler’s and on VG?
Thanks!

Yesterday at 12:51 PM Oil Nut Bay [by gordaguy2]
Passing along some current info:

Good Afternoon Brian,

Access to Oil Nut Bay and the Beach Club restaurant is currently free of charge with a lunch reservation. Included in your reservation, you will also have access to our three pools, swim-up pool bar, beach and water sports equipment.

We are currently developing our marina village to include a restaurant, bar and provisioning store. Once this area of Oil Nut Bay opens on December 15th, this area will be free for visitors but the Beach Club restaurant within our resort center will only be available to outside guests who have purchased a day pass, costing $75 per person per day.
