Bars & Restaurants Closed for 2024 BVI Hurricane Season

Many popular British Virgin Island establishments close for BVI hurricane season as many yacht charter crews wait out potential weather disruptions. It also serves as a welcomed break for some employees. The BVI hurricane season, where tourism slows down, peaks in August and September.

Most businesses will be back open by middle to late October, as the greatest threat of hurricane season in the BVIs has passed.

Here's a list of some bars and restaurants that will be closed for the 2023 BVI hurricane season. We also include a list of those not planning to close. The Yacht Warriors will continue to update this list as we hear back from more businesses.
