BVI - What's Open After Hurricane Irma

It still feels like yesterday...when the eyes of the world turned towards the Caribbean and watched as Mother Nature proved that she is a force to be reckoned with. And although nothing could have prepared us for the heartbreak and devastation that September’s record-breaking storms brought to our beloved British Virgin Islands, we continue to be awe-inspired by the strength and resiliency demonstrated by the local BVI community.

Since the passing of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, this fan-favorite charter destination has not only bounced back in impressive fashion, but many of the local establishments that we have all grown to love have reopened for business, including recent notables such as: 

Cooper Island Beach Club
Corsair’s Beach Bar & Restaurant
Hog Heaven Bar & Restaurant
Pusser’s Marina Cay – patio dining
Scrub Island Resort
Seddy’s One Love Bar & Grill

Recently, we have traveled to the BVI to help you stay in the loop with all the latest news and cruising ground updates. During our visit, we have discovered that the white-sand beaches and turquoise waters are still remarkably beautiful, and snorkeling, diving, kayaking and paddle boarding conditions remain incredible. But don’t just take our word for it – read what recent Moorings charter guests are saying
