Whether you’re planning to stay for an extended visit on Virgin Gorda or want to stop by while on a sailing or yacht trip, the stunning community at Oil Nut Bay will not disappoint anyone wanting a truly elegant experience.
Opened in 2019, the Marina Village has become the premier North Sound destination for sailors, yachters and visitors to Virgin Gorda. The coffee shop serves delicious artisanal drinks from Virgin Island Coffee Roasters and offers house-made pastries and bread baked daily. Guests can sip their beverage as they stroll the docks enjoying the stunning scenery or browse for their next favourite read in the village library.
A games room provides a fun place to enjoy a little friendly competition with friends and loved ones. Complete with darts, foosball, ping-pong and billiards, there’s something for everyone to enjoy! If a little retail therapy is more your style, the boutique is fully stocked with resort and swimwear to suit everyone’s taste. Featuring Caribbean and international designers, the carefully curated collection of trendy items and gifts is perfect for an afternoon of shopping with friends or enjoying time to yourself.
The new Marina Market has everything you need to provision your boat or pick up something delicious for a snack at the beach. Offering a wide variety of edibles, wines, spirits and beverages, the Marina Market also offers some favourite takeaway items from Nova restaurant.
The state-of-the-art North Sound marina includes 93 berths that are perfectly situated in the natural harbour of Deep Bay. The secure alongside mooring can accommodate yachts up to 130 feet and a draft of up to eight feet. Berths are available for nightly reservations, and mooring balls are available in Deep Bay, with 10 balls for boats up to 60 feet and one mooring ball for boats up to 120 feet. In order to protect the delicate marine environment, Oil Nut Bay highly discourages anchoring in Deep Bay and Eustatia Sound.
Marina and day guests are also able to purchase a resort day pass to the Oil Nut Bay Beach Club. This pass offers access to the multi-level swimming pool with a swim-up bar and complimentary access to kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and snorkelling equipment. Advanced reservations are required for the beach club.
In addition to all of the fabulous amenities available at Oil Nut Bay’s Marina Village, an exciting expansion project is also underway. A white sand beach and day spa that will be open to the public is slated to open in early 2022. Guests can enjoy a beachside manicure or pedicure, or get the perfect blowout for dinner at Nova that night. Outdoor showers plus individual and couple’s treatment rooms will be available for massages and facials. The day spa will be the next ultra-luxe addition to the Marina Village, making it a must-stop on your trip to Virgin Gorda.
An instant favourite as soon as it opened in 2019, Nova is now an unforgettable part of the Virgin Gorda restaurant scene. Featuring global dishes and plates that friends and family can enjoy together, the overwater restaurant is a chic island lounge, perfect for any time of day.
Weekends at Nova are truly special. Start the weekend right with Rose Saturdays, which include bottomless house rose with selections from a three-course menu from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. Then indulge in Sunday brunch, which includes choices from a two-course menu plus bottomless mimosas and mojitos each Sunday from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.
Whether you’re enjoying some turtle-watching in an overwater hammock or daybed or enjoying a handcrafted cocktail from the designer bar near the suspended swimming pool, you’ll be planning your next trip to Nova before you leave.
