“The best Marina in the BVI's”
Reviewed 6 April 2013 via mobile

The most helpful accommodating and informative staff. The best facilities....a great pool, beach, beach bar snd shops all on your doorstep. Very well organised with boat services....things get fixed quickly. Downside..... Laundry service is not quick but you can use machines to do yourself in the evening.

“Nanny Cay...a hidden, quiet, treasure”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

We blindly found and fell in love with Nanny Cay. After getting off the cruise ship, we were looking for somewhere that was far less populated...and we found it. If you are looking for a beautiful beach that is quiet and secluded...this is the place. If you are looking for lots of activities such as wave runners, kayaks, or other active and payment required water activities...Nanny Cay is not your place. We snorkeled , swam, and just hung out. All 5 kids enjoyed it as well. There is a pool available for swimming but had a nominal charge of $5-$7 per person. There is a thatch covered. bar like area too that has soda and drinks. Cab fare from the cruise port was $6 per person. Nanny Cay is near a marina with a nice scenic walkway. It is definitely worth a visit.

“Great place but many rocks”
Reviewed 18 March 2013 via mobile

There is a bar with food, toilets and showers, a pool and a cab only costs $6 per person from the cruise port. Everything is great but you can't go bear foot. There are so many rocks so you will need water shoes. Other Han that it is enjoyable with mild waters and a great place to be!

“Nanny Cay is "One-Stop" Everything!”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

We stumbled upon this place by accident. They have a small, but clean beach area, a well stocked and lively bar, and a pool that you can pay $10 to use that looked very good. (I didn't use the pool, just the beach.) The connected restaurant offers excellent food at very reasonable prices. It's also a huge marina too on the other side of beach and pool.

“Great Showers, Beach, Bar, Marina and Full Service Boatyard”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

When we bareboat charter we usually feel rushed to get our boat out of the marina and to a more secluded anchorage on Peter or Norman Island. However, unlike other more industrial-feeling marinas on Tortola, Nanny Cay made us feel like our vacation had started as soon as we arrived. There is a nice beach outside the marina and an excellent beach bar. I can't speak to the sit-down restaurant because we arrived in time for the Friday-night grill on the beach, which was good but a little pricy. Most importantly for the crew after long flights (and at the end of the week on the boat), the showers at Nanny Cay are excellent. The docks were in great shape, and the marina appears to be full service. The fuel dock got a little crowded in the morning, forcing one boat to wait for two returning charter boats to fill their water and fuel tanks. We were able to provision at the small grocery store under the Horizon Yacht Charter offices.
