The Deadman’s Bay lies on the southeastern side of the honeymoon beach, just in front of the Peter Island Resort. It is right in between Honeymoon beach and Tradewinds Restaurant. Deadman’s bay might be a bit bumpy for any BVI charter yacht looking to anchor there. The best anchoring at Deadman’s bay is at the southeastern end of the bay. The water is 15-20 feet deep and offers a grassy bottom. The bay is also easily accessible from the great harbour and sprat bay.
Deadman’s Bay lies to the east of Sprat Bay. The beautiful white sand of the beach and shaded by palm trees around it are bound to take your breath away. It is a mile long half-moon shaped beach that sits just outside the Peter Island Resort that overlooks Dead Chest and Salt Island. The naming of the bay is pretty interesting. It is named so because 15 dead bodies from the pirate ship of notorious pirate Blackbeard washed up here from the Dead Chest Island. The Deadman’s Beach Bar and Grill are located in Deadman’s Bay. It is a popular snorkelling destination for yacht charter tourists.
