Full Moon Night at the Bomba Shack


When planning your visit, you may want to look at the phases of the moon. Full-moon night is a special occasion in the BVI and the Bomba Shack, in Cane Garden Bay is the place to be. (The official name is Bomba’s Surfside Shack—but nobody calls it that.)

Bomba Shack Exterior

The party flavor is full-blown Caribbean with a live band and the special drinks flowing. Located on the north coast of Tortola, the only way to get there is by taxi as Cappoon’s Bay is not suitable for anchorage.

The Bomba Shack is made up of sticks and various items that have been picked up and deposited on the beach over the years, including a unique collection of bras and briefs hung from the rafters by patrons caught up in the spirit of the moment.

Bomba, a local legend, usually presides over the full-moon festivities, occasionally handing out t-shirts to ladies who elect to leave something special behind to add to the décor. Bomba’s magic mushroom tea, sold on full-moon night, is said to have qualities to enhance the evening.

While this may be more mystique than reality, the event is fun for all and a true part of the Caribbean party-cruise experience.
