Maya Cove
Fat Hog’s Bay

Along the Sir Francis Drake Channel side of Tortola’s coast and close to the Airport, Maya Cove is a protected enclave behind its reef and Buck Island.

Hodges Creek Marina. This marina, in Maya Cove, also called Hodges Creek, has all yachtsman services, studio apartments, the Calamaya and Fat Hog Bob’s restaurants, a supermarket, Sunsail Yacht Charters, and Sail Caribbean Divers.

Calamaya (495-2126), open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, has a new alfresco dining terrace on the second floor overlooking the harbour at Hodges Creek Marina.

The architecture fuses ancient Roman temple designs expressed in muted West Indian colors. A member of that eclectic family of Italian restaurants including the Brandywine and Capriccio di Mare, Calamaya might be called a West Indian and Italian seafood restaurant.

Lunch features lobster and pasta pizza, a Cubana Grilled Sandwich with shrimp, ham, pineapple and cheese, flying fish sandwiches, and beef wraps.

Dinner starts with a unique Island Fruit Fritters appetiser and finishes with Banana Ravioli for desert. Entrees include New York Strip Steak in a tamarind barbecue sauce, jerk chicken and pastas like Black Fettuccine of Lobster in a Tomato and Cream Sauce.

The West Indian Roast Pork comes from a suckling pig roasted on a spit visible through a display window to the kitchen.

Pelican’s Cafe (495-1515), open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, has hearty fare and a casual ambiance right on the waterfront at Tropic Island Marina.

Pusser’s East, at the old Fat Hog Bob’s location, has the Pusser’s trademark nautical decor in the indoor dining room as well as the outdoor deck overlooking the Sir Francis Drake channel.

Lunch features lots of appetizers, paninis and other sandwiches.

Home of the infamous Pusser’s "Painkiller" drink!

Dinner offers Pusser’s excellent English pub fare as well as skillet dishes fresh off the grill.

Tropic Island Villas (494-2450) offer two bedroom and studio apartments exquisitely furnished, with private bathrooms, fully-equipped kitchens, balconies, air-conditioning, satellite TV and direct dial telephones, a pool and views of the Sir Francis Drake Channel.
