Norman Island, British Virgin Islands

Legend has it that pirate treasure is buried at a natural formation called the Indians, which are half-submerged rocks forming an underwater labyrinth for divers and snorkelers. The island is deserted but for a few seabirds, several footpaths, and the Billy Bones bar. One trail leads to Spy Glass Hill, a challenging half-hour hike rewarding you with fantastic views. Pirates once used this lookout to spot Spanish Galleons returning home with gold and treasure.
Salt Island, British Virgin Islands
Salt Island, named for the salt works that produce the BVI’s yearly levi to the British Crown, where, before the days of refrigeration, salt was harvested from two large ponds for curing local fish and for sale to passing ships.
