Lobsters in the British Virgin Islands

By | Category: Travel destinations

The impact of Hurricane Irma was fairly destructive across the British Virgin Islands. Now though, after a clean-up, the islands are open for business and to prove it, the islanders have decided that the Anegada Lobster Festival should go ahead as planned on November the 25th and 26th.

This is a significant move, helped by the fact that Anegda was not as damaged as other islands were. By going ahead with this widely-known food festival, the islanders are encouraging tourists to return and understand that the islands are returning to normality.

The first visitors started to return from last week just after the Foreign and Commonwealth Office changed its advisory notice warning visitors not to travel there. Now that advice has altered, visitors should return, a fact that the islanders will wholeheartedly welcome as it brings money to the islands to help in the rebuilding.

Currently there are 7 restaurants participating in the Anegada Lobster Festival and each will be putting their unique spins on the island’s most popular crustacean for all guests to sample. Live entertainment will accompany the festival throughout the weekend.

It has to be said, though, that available accommodation on Anegada is limited but this gives visitors the opportunity to stay on charter boats and yachts. In addition daily ferry transportation will be available, to and from Tortola and Interisland Ferry Service will be available to transport guests coming from the US Virgin islands.
