With numerous islands each with its own personality, there are plenty of food experiences to be had in the British Virgin Islands. From conch to Anegada lobster, the seafood is fresher than fresh. And be sure to try the rum punch, which is potent and fruity, and endlessly refreshing on a hot day. Here are Forbes Travel Guide’s tips for the five best British Virgin Island food experiences:
1. Pusser’s Landing. Head to Pusser’s bar in Tortola’s West End for a Painkiller. The rum punch is a trademark of the West Indian restaurant and, trust is, it will make your pain disappear.
2. The Last Resort. Located on its own little island off Beef Island and Tortola, you’ll get Caribbean fare with a side of song and dance. The “Singing Chef” will have you laughing and joining in. The eclectic restaurant is only accessible by boat, but it’s well worth the trip.
3. Soggy Dollar Bar. This Jost Van Dyke beachside restaurant serves up local cuisine with plenty of rum to go alongside it. Chow down on the conch fritters and wash it down with Soggy Dollar’s version of a Painkiller.
4. The William Thornton Floating Bar & Restaurant. Locals know it as Willy T’s and it’s made this beautiful anchorage popular. Norman Island is otherwise desolate, but make it to Willy T’s and you’re in for a treat. Fill up on seafood and head to the top deck to jump into the turquoise water.
5. Cow Wreck. This Anegada restaurant is more of a beach shack than anything, but it churns out some of the best conch fritters in the British Virgin Islands. You’ll see chefs grilling everything from local lobster to chicken.
