The brightly painted buildings and waterfront of Soper’s Hole is truly one of the British Virgin Islands iconic locations. For the many travelers who arrive by ferry from the US Virgin Islands, it is one of the first sights they see upon docking at the West End ferry terminal but, just about everyone visiting the BVI will have a trip to Soper’s Hole planned for their itinerary.
Sitting at a dockside table, sipping a favorite drink whilst watching the coming and going in the busy harbor, never seems to lose its charm. Few could imagine a view of the harbor without the colorful buildings, shops and docks clustered around Pusser’s Landing restaurant, but all this was wiped away in a matter of hours by Hurricane Irma. Thankfully, the resilience of the local community and business owners prevailed and, today, Soper’s Hole waterfront has been beautifully restored and is welcoming visitors once again.
