Legend tells that a Creque family fisherman once found a chest of gold doubloons in a cave off Norman Island as he sought shelter from a storm. Though all the treasure appears to be gone, now Treasure Point Caves are a popular spot for snorkeling.

The caves are not particularly big or deep. You can stand up with your head above water here, and you're able to see natural light from the back of the caves.

Treasure Point Caves are known as a popular snorkeling spot because they are easy for novice snorkelers to manage and offer a beautiful underwater view.


Located on Norman Island, near downtown Road Town, Treasure Point Caves always welcomes local customers and travelers who are rooming on this part of the island. Even if you are not staying particularly close, you should consider stopping by for some fun in the sun. It's south of Road Town.
