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 the western section of Norman Island, near downtown Road Town, Treasure Point Caves welcomes residents and travelers who are rooming on this part of the island. Whether or not you are staying in the vicinity, you are free to stop by to enjoy a great time. In case you're wondering, Road Town is to the north.

Nearby Restaurants

If you've worked up an appetite exploring the cave, you're in luck, as you'll discover an exceptionally large selection of local restaurants in this area. William Thornton Floating Bar and Restaurant, which has a menu full of Caribbean food, is very close-by, making it a great option for cave visitors. The eatery is a short ways off, but removed enough that you might decide to make advance plans for having some mode of transport to travel there. Also close-by, you and your party will encounter eateries including Deadman's Beach Bar & Grill and Tradewinds Restaurant so with any luck, at least one of these nearby choices will humor the whole entire gang.
