Conch’s Fab Spot of the Month
Pusser’s Marina Cay
Marina Cay, a small 8 acre island located right next to both Great Camanoe and Scrub island, is only a stone’s throw from Tortola.
In the early 90s, the island was brought by Charles Tobias, founder of Pussers, who set about building the small resort, gift shop and restaurant that is still there today! It had joined the chain of Pussers restaurants that are scattered throughout the BVI.
It is a great place to spend the afternoon, with sandy shallow water right off the beach perfect for splashing about in, plus some fantastic snorkeling on the inner reef! And of course, the famous Pussers Painkiller cocktail, a favourite of many (although they didn’t invent it!)
Marina Cay is a popular overnight spot for many with around 30 overnight moorings all maintained by Moore Secure, there are consistent breezes which help to keep it cool in the evenings.
It may be small but there is a lot packed into this little island! They have a fuel dock with both gas and diesel, plus water and ice available. The dock is home to the famous red phone box, which features a live webcam looking out over the water!
Staying on Tortola? No problem there is a regular ferry service from Trellis Bay over to Marina Cay (no even 5 minutes ride!)

“Dark and Spooky”
2oz Conch Superior Rum
(a bottle free with every charter)
A dash of lime juice
Wedge of Lime
Add a gummy spider to the bottom of a curved glass filled with ice. Next add the rum and a dash of lime juice. Then pour the ginger beer so that it floats on top. Finish with a wedge of lime!
A great Halloween ‘twist’ on this Caribbean classic!
In which bar was the Painkiller invented?
All of us have a story from the time there was ‘one to many’ Painkillers! But in which bar in the BVI was it first created?
Hint: It may be Pussers signature drink, but it wasn’t invented in one of their bars!
