The ‘Caribbean Christmas Tree’
Now a rare and endangered species, the Century plant or Agave used to be prolific around the Virgin Islands and Caribbean region. Around Easter time the hills of the BVI used to be filled with the colourful yellow blossom. Unfortunately around 2000 the population was devastated by an invasive species of beetle, but we are now beginning to see them make a come back!
For most of it’s life the Century plant is a short, spiky shrub but as it dies it sends up a tall stalk (that can reach 10-20 feet!) which bursts into large, bright blossoms. It’s this stalk that is usually decorated and used as a Christmas tree once all the blossom has finished!

Located on the beach at Trellis Bay, De Loose Mongoose has a fantastic setting! Enjoy cool, breezy evenings on the beach looking out over the water.
Along side all the old favourites, such as burgers and pastas, they also serve a great selection of fish and seafood dishes as well as traditional Caribbean meals. Be sure to try the chicken roti! They have a Taco Tuesday and a big BBQ grill out on Friday and Sunday. On a full moon Fireball Party night they have a mouthwatering pig spit buffet!
You could always just stop by for Happy Hour between 3 -7pm, they have some great drink specials!
Looking for somewhere to stay? The Beef Island Guest House is right next door with 4 rooms available. Close by the airport it is perfect if you need somewhere to stay at either the beginning or the end of your charter.
