Solo traveler in BVIs

I will be traveling solo to Virgin Gorda from August 24th to September 2nd. Anyone know about the good places to go to find good camraderie? Or anyone else going to be wandering the islands independently?

Be aware that you are coming at a VERY slow time of year. Most restaurants will be closed and there are very few people around. A few places that will be open are the beach bar at Leverick Bay, the Bath & Turtle, Mad Dogs, Flying Iguana, the local bars up at the North Sound , maybe the Mine Shaft. Any of these would be a good place to meet up with people, the few of us that haven't gone off island on vacation and the handful of visitors that might be here.

Hi David,

I plan to be traveling there solo the first week in August, I will let you know what I find there. I really love to travel solo in the carribean and have found most places to be friendly, I actually went to Jamaica 2 years ago and had a great time, met alot of other great people. Too bad you won't be there earlier in the month! I will check it all out and let you know what I find out.

Any bars that are still open will be friendly but VG is slow at the best of times as another poster said, this is slow season. If you are happy chatting with locals, then there are always plenty of bars open.

Thanks for the input, Yank and Drivexx. Jaynem, it is too bad you won't be there a few weeks later. I'm eager to hear how your trip goes and what you discover as a fellow solo-traveler.

Its true that Virgin Gorda, will be relativily slow at that time of year. But I am sure you will be able to find things to do and friendly people to chat with. Virgin Gorda is extremely beautiful, be sure to let it all soak in. : )
