Watersports: The big attraction of Norman Island is the snorkeling and diving spots just offshore the harbor known as The Bight. The Caves comprises three caves in the rocky cliffs right around the corner from The Bight, where snorkelers and divers can chase tropical fish and swim into the narrow caverns. Just offshore in the opposite direction, The Indians is an outcropping of rocks in the sea surrounded by coral reefs. Book a tour through your cruise line; otherwise, Sail Caribbean Divers is the snorkel and dive operator on Norman Island.

Beachside fun: Pirates Bight Bar, Restaurant and Gift Shop and The Club are the two open-air, beachside bar-restaurants on Norman Island. Prices aren't cheap, but what else would you expect on an uninhabited island where everything needs to be sailed in?

However, the bar in the spotlight is The Willie-T, a floating bar-restaurant on a sailboat that is known for 24/7 debauchery. There's no dress code as most people are in their bathing suits so they can jump off the deck into the water whenever they feel like it. The Willy-T is moored in the harbor, so the only way to reach it is by skiff or kayak. Your cruise ship can't tender you here.

Otherwise, visitors here hang out on the beach or do a hike up the hill behind The Bight.
