We are arriving March 6 with plans to set sail Saturday, March 7, 2020. First trip to the BVI. Four couples, all boat/water lovers and boat dock neighbors. Any suggestions on places to unwind and toast the start of our adventure nearby The Moorings the night before we depart. Planning to visit The Baths, Trellis Bay Full Moon Party, Willie T’s, Soggy Dollar, Foxy’s, get some lobster in Anegada and more. Would love to hear experienced tips and suggestions.

No North Sound - leverick bay? I think it should be a must especially if you can attend their Friday night BBQ, reserve a slip and rent a car to tour the island. Wonky Dog for dinner in Anegada!

Have Fun and enjoy!

After a long day of travel I would just relax at the Moorings campus and start to get on Island Time.
. Mariner restaurant, pool bar and Charlies.
Have fun!

On Friday nights, the Watering Hole is always a good hangout. If you ask around the dock guys, they could probably show you where to dinghy to that you'd be able to walk right to it. Great food, great crowd, fun music! Definitely a local place but worth checking out.

If you want a great meal, you could dinghy to the same area (or taxi) and walk a couple of blocks to Rooftop by Brandwine. Al "the singing chef" Broderick plays there on Fridays in March. Should be a good time!

don't miss a visit to Coco Maya VG, coolest bar/ restaurant in N hemisphere imho ; not excited re Trellis bay; bubbly pool in little JVD well worth a visit, enjoy.

Taya-

If you put up your agenda people will comment...

We stay at Leverick then taxi to baths in late afternoon and then dinner at Coco Maya...then head to Anegada from leverick.

I would skip Trellis...

I second staying at the Moorings Base and food/drinks at Charlie's. The food is expensive but very good.

Trellis Bay isn’t worth it. Full Moon Party is just bars and music— you can find that anywhere in BVI and there’s not much else at Trellis. This may be an unpopular opinion but we felt like we wasted a day of our itinerary on the Trellis FMP.

Sorry to hear that. Our "overhyped" stop has been the Leverick Friday BBQ. We love Leverick and will continue to make it a stop but thought the Friday BBQ wasn't something we'd alter our itinerary for in the future. Someone mentioned a late run to the Baths with Coco Maya on the way home and THAT may be what we do next time.

Everyone has their "things" and that's the way it should be. Try everything and decide what works for each crew. We've obviously found sooooo many things to love we keep coming back and make sure each itinerary has numerous stops and events we haven't tried before. Sometimes it's glorious, others .... not as much but there is always more rum. smile

Just left the Bight, going to the Baths, Spanishtown, trellis Bay on Monday (depending on weather), Anegada on Tuesday, cane Garden Bay on Wednesday, Jost Van Dyke, white bay or great bay on Thursday, and Cooper Island, Manchineel Bay on Friday. I would love to hear recommendations for those areas and others nearby. Our itinerary is flexible. Thanks!!

I'd bin Trellis bay or CGB, or even both; stay 2 nights in Anegada, add Little Jost for a visit to the bubbly pool & and B-Line bar.

In Cane Garden Bay, I'd recommend Quito's for happy hour and/or dinner. Always music and great prices on HH drinks/snacks!
