Dock & Dine: Discover Why Oil Nut Bay is a Yachting Favorite in Virgin Gorda

Posted August 21, 2021 in Travel by Miriam Cain

Featuring a marina village with an overwater restaurant, floating hammocks and a suspended pool, Oil Nut Bay is the perfect place to dock and dine.

Located on the eastern tip of Virgin Gorda in the beautiful British Virgin Islands, the exclusive marina resort of Oil Nut Bay was made for the waterborne. Secluded and ultra-private, the 400-acre property is made up of low-level buildings – some with living roofs – that seemingly disappear into the backdrop of the verdant green hills. Surrounded by coral reefs and calm Caribbean waters, Virgin Gorda is the sailing epicenter of the archipelago, and Oil Nut Bay has fast become a firm favorite with the yachting crowd. With jetty moorings for yachts up to 130 feet and mooring balls in the bay, there is plenty to offer all those who choose to step ashore, including the signature overwater restaurant, Nova. While overlooking the waters of Deep Bay, enjoy a tapas-style alfresco luncheon from the delectable menu created by head chef Jermain Abrams. Follow your long and leisurely lunch with a siesta on the floating hammocks or a refreshing dip in the suspended pool while children play foosball or billiards in the dedicated games room. Browse the chic boutique, stroll the docks, visit the village library or simply take in your surroundings with a Nova craft cocktail in hand. 

Nova is open Saturday 11:30am to 8:30pm and Sunday 10:30am to 8:30pm.
