More about Sugar Mill Hotel

Great scenery, good food

by AuntMaj about The Sugar Mill

The Sugar Mill Restaurant, located within the Sugar Mill Hotel, is actually in an old sugar mill. While the restaurant was not open for lunch, we ate at the seaside grill across the road. They offered lighter fare, sandwiches and fresh fish. I had very tasty conch fritters. While the restaurant and hotel aren't for families with small children, there were little ones at the seaside tables. My sister-in-law has eaten many times at the restaurant and assured us the food is excellent. The conch fritters were very tasty.

Safe in Road Town for lady alone?

by joyfortraveling

I will be in Road Town by myself for two days. Anyone had any problems as far as safety, theft etc. Walking around with a backpack O.K.? I have had an incident in Costa Rica and wanted to know if this is a concern in Tortola? Thank you.

The British Virgin Islands are relatively safe & absolutely wonderful, you'll love Tortola. Bear in mind BVI is much wealthier than some of the other Caribbean & Central American countries that have so many problems with crime. And they aren't as indulgent to criminals as some of the US territories.

I am planning to do a trip by myself to the BVI's in the near future, hopefully next winter.

Not to worry. I've spent over three years going down for business at least once a month if not more, and have lots of local friends. There is always theft anywhere when tourist get lazy and careless, but Tortola over all is very safe. To my knowledge there hasen't been any violent crimes in years, and is still considered one of the safest island. Relax and enjoy a painkiller which is one of the local specialities!

Travel Tips for Tortola

A great view from atop

by HispanicYob

Almost away from the beaten bath anyways. This picture was taken near a roadside bar that had the most magnificent view! Make sure when you're in Tortola to take plenty of pictures as the views are great!

The Baths-Spring Bay

by Dabs

After getting off the Speedy safari taxi, you pay the small entrance fee (I think it was $3-4 per person) and then walk down the pathway to get to Spring Bay. As you are reading about the Baths, people will talk about the difficulty of the walk but it's not to this part that they are talking about as it's an easy 5-10 minute walk on a very clearly defined path. Once at the beach, you can get in the water here for a swim as long as the red caution flags aren't out, there's a place to eat/drink, toilets and lockers at this part of the Baths.

The current is reasonably strong here so if you are not a strong swimmer you may wish to wait until you get to Devil's Bay or at least keep close enough to shore to touch bottom. Also watch out for the uneven rocks underfoot and the rocks in the water.

The Splendid Wall Mural of Fahey Hill

by starship

During our tour of Tortola, our little open-air bus chugged up and down the hills around the island and while climbing Ridge Road we came upon a magnificent piece of local art! The Fahey (sometimes spelled Fahie) Hill Mural is a 60 foot long painting done on a retaining wall depicting cultural scenes of Tortola. I really like Caribbean artwork and I thought this mural was engaging, vivid and a splendid example of the talented work. Painted by local artist, Ruben Vanterpool, the mural shows delightful scenes of such activities as gathering fruit, fishing, local landscape, dancing, working, etc. It takes a huge of work to paint continuous scenery on a "canvas" approximately 10 ft. high and 60 ft. long!!

I was not able to get a clear and complete picture of the entire mural as we were not allowed to get off the bus -- Ridge Road is winding, a little narrow and at a somewhat high elevation. The mural is a testament to the imagination and talent of Mr. Vanterpool, and was one of the more fascinating sights on Tortola--don't miss it.

Skyworld is a restaurant sitting high in the hills of Tortola, above Road Town. It has an observation deck that offers a 360 degree view of Tortola, the Caribbean, and various islands. We didn't eat here but just stopped for the views.
