Little Thatch Island British Virgin Islands
Little Thatch Island British Virgin Islands is a privately owned island of the BVI in the Caribbean, upon which a resort has been built. The island is located less than 500 yards from the western end of Tortola, and is less than a mile away from Saint John, United States Virgin Islands. It is owned by John and Jill Maynard. It is believed to take its name from the famous pirate, Edward Teach (better known as “Blackbeard”), although there is little evidence Blackbeard ever sailed in the Virgin Islands.
This 54-acre private island paradise is set with five guest cottages all leading to the spectacular, handcrafted Great Room, perched atop the crest of this lush, green island. The enormous Great Room pavilion, which opens on three sides to unforgettable ocean views, offers seating areas scattered with stylish overstuffed sofas, easy chairs done in bright Caribbean fabrics, hammocks, and a dining area which looks out across shimmering seas to the sparkling lights of St. John and St. Thomas beyond.
Little Thatch Island is characterized by golden beaches, fringed with coconut palms and the sea-grapes from which the guest cottage has taken its name. The water surrounding Little Thatch is so clear you don’t even need a snorkel to view the amazing variety of sea life. The southern side of the island (facing St. John) has a large calm and well protected bay that invites exploration and snorkeling.
