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.


Situated on the western section of Norman Island, near downtown Road Town, Treasure Point Caves always welcomes local customers and visitors rooming on this part of the island or close by. Whether or not you are staying particularly close, you are free to stop by to check it out. In case you're wondering, Road Town is to the north.

Nearby Restaurants

And, one of the most enjoyable possibilities while spending a few hours exploring the area could be having a dish at a restaurant within traveling distance of the cave. The most nearby eatery to Treasure Point Caves is William Thornton Floating Bar and Restaurant, which has a menu full of Caribbean dishes. The restaurant is only around a short distance away away from the cave, so stop by and enjoy a meal. Deadman's Beach Bar & Grill and Tradewinds Restaurant are a couple other restaurant choices nearby where guests can try something different in the Virgin Islands.
