Does anybody have any info about the Tamarand...near the airport and I've seen nothing about Myetts especially about Myetts because the owner..I assume as a hobby...raised beautiful flowers which he sold to events all over the island
Thank you

Amazed and thrilled to see Sydney's Peace and Love just showed up on the BVI Traveller open list! Seems I had only just read that they'd finally hauled Bomba Charger off of their roof. Anybody been? Food and beverages?

With the limited places open for dining right now its really frustrating when a place only serving the most basics waits for you to order and then says.."Oh we have no pizza"..( their mainstay) then serves up the worst Margarita I have ever had...and of course charges you for it ( dirty water and a splash of lime does not a Margarita make) No names mentioned but..Thank goodness we have " D Coal Pot", "Omars" and " Stouts Lookout " within easy striking distance of Apple Bay. That said..the beach bar at " The Sugar Mill" is coming along fast and will be much bigger and open all day and serving dinner..boy do we need that!

We were in Little Harbour a few weeks ago and Sydney's was dark and closed. The good news is that Bomba Challenger had been hauled off of their roof- she was lying in a rough state just offshore from Sydney's. We too had seen on several online sources that they were already open and not sure where the disconnect was. That same night, Abe's on the other side of Little Harbour was indeed open. We went to Little Harbour for Sydney's so hoping that the news is correct and that by now they are indeed open.

We did some pirating last week in the BVI's and made it up to Anegada. Monica wants everyone to know that the "Flash of Beauty" bar is open. We also hit Big Bamboo's and Cow Wreck as well. Awesome beach day, tons of fun. The beaches, bars, and people are amazing in Anegada......... (but the shallow reefs on the north side got pretty beat up by the hurricane). Overall this was one of the best sailing trips we have taken in the BVI's. Everyone was very appreciative, and went out of there way to make sure we had a good time. Also, the first hand stories we heard about everyone's individual account of the storm blew me away.

The BVI are coming back strong - Arrrrrrrrrrrrr

Despite what you are told in various places fuel is not available in Spanish Town. Last week they said their pump was broken and they haven't received the part from Tortola nor did they know when they might.

It would be great to see the accommodations that are reopening as well. I get the impression most of the businesses posted are restaurants and bars?

Hi Jason - Do you know if the Columbus Sunset Apartments in Cane Garden Bay are open? I have tried to contact with no avail. I saw your post on the Interactive map that the Tourist board has put up. It is terrific however needs everyone to populate it.

Had dinner at Corsair on Jost tonight and it was Very good. This is their 3rd night open. They just got their lights installed. They have a limited menu but what they have is wonderful. Their shrimp chimichurri is highly recommended! The customer service is top notch. They are very enthusiastic about making sure you enjoy your meal. We've been to many other restaurants in the islands and Corsairs is a stand out!
