An Eco-Friendly Development

Oil Nut Bay is located on the easternmost tip of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. It is one of the more recent luxury resorts and developments to open in the area. It is only accessible by helicopter or boat. Not only does it offer luxury living for residents and guests, it is also an eco-friendly development. With power from solar panels and reverse osmosis used to turn saltwater into potable drinking water. For pools and irrigation Oil Nut Bay recycles gray water. Moreover, it’s a huge asset considering how dry the climate generally is in the British Virgin Islands.

The development, Oil Nut Bay is located on 400 acres of land. With different “villages” set up where both existing and planned villas are located. All the villas have breathtaking views of the clear, blue waters below. There is also a community garden. As well as The Beach Club restaurant and a tennis court. Another key point are water sport activities. They can be arranged at the water sports office. Oil Nut Bay Marina Village includes the Nature House, and the Nut House. Which is essentially a daycare for children to play and learn.

The development is the brainchild of David V. Johnson, an American developer known for his billion-dollar Bay Harbor development on Lake Michigan in the United States.

According to Oil Nut Bay’s site, there are currently 13 villas available to rent at Oil Nut Bay Marina Village. There were originally 17 available. All in all, with plans to have a total of approximately 67 properties built over the course of ten years. Hurricane Irma put a stop to that and Oil Nut Bay closed for reconstruction until December 2018.
