Leverick Bay is on Virgin Gorda's north east shore, on an inlet on the North Sound. Virgin Gorda has a population of approximately 2500 people. One road takes you across the length of the island, which is approximately 8 miles long, to Spanish Town (or commonly referred to as the Valley) and further onto the Baths.
Rainfall: Most of the 26-39" of rain, falls between September and November, yet don't be surprised should a 5 minute rain shower soak you in the day. Just think of it as "liquid sunshine".
Hot Water: Solar heaters and panels are used most commonly in the Caribbean to heat the water. Electricity charges are considerably higher here than for example the USA.
Voltage: all outlets in the BVI's are 110 V. Because electricity costs are extremely high, we ask that guests staying in any A/C unit, please be sure to turn off the A/C when not inside. Occasionally power failures do occur. They can last between a split second and generally no longer than 5 hours. (Rarely does the power go out for any longer, if that.) When we do have power failures, the water pumps do not work. Please be sure not to turn faucets or showers on and leave them in the "on " position, for when the power returns, the water will start to flow, which may empty the cisterns.
Drugs: "The possession, sale, use or distribution of illegal drugs constitutes a criminal offense punishable by law and conviction on drug charges can lead to still fines and jail sentences in our not-so-enjoyable detention facility." (The B.V.I. Welcome Guide)
Dress Code: It is your vacation, you decide. A few restaurants (Biras Creek and Little Dix Bay) do however maintain a dress code, where gentlemen must wear slacks and shirts with a collar, and ladies can be as elegant as they please, To avoid any embarrassment, please double check with the restaurant.
Animals, Reptiles, Insects & Bugs: These creatures live in the Caribbean and are at times quite abundant, especially at certain times of the year. Do not be too alarmed or surprised to see them inside on walls and window ledges.
The Virgin Island also have there fair share of wild and untamed cats (dogs) that become familiar with guests and left over foods. Should you choose to feed them once, then you can expect a pet for the remainder of your stay. Just remember though, that after you depart, the animals will go hungry again, because there may be no one about to feed them. Also, should you allow any animals inside your unit, they may damage and soil the unit. On a more positive note, should you be victim to a sting or bite from any type of creature, it is not generally deadly, but people with allergies should take precautions as they may have a more severe reaction to stings.
