Norman Island, home of Pirates Bight Bar, Restaurant, and Gift Shop, is perhaps most famous for being the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel, Treasure Island. However, Norman Island also has a rich documented history of acting as a hiding spot for Pirate booty. Documented history for the island dates back to the early 18th century when a Spanish galleon called Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe buried 55 chests of silver coins after the crew mutinied aboard the ship. Although most of the treasure has been discovered by Tortolian residents and later by Lieutenant-General of the Leeward Islands, Gilbert Fleming, more pirate treasure is rumored to exist today on Norman Island. Today, Norman Island offers one of the safest and most scenic harbors in the British Virgin Islands. The anchorage known as “The Bight” offers over 100 moorings available for guest use and is central to numerous world famous SCUBA dive and snorkel sites such as the Caves and the Indians. The 610-acre privately owned uninhabited island also boast numerous hiking trails and a breath taking white sand beach, which is the site of Pirates Bight Restaurant.
