Frenchman’s Cay in the British Virgin Islands is located at the west end of Tortola. The two islands are connected by a small bridge. In times past, this tiny island was a notorious den for pirates. They would use the high ground to watch for naval ships or potential victims. Today, Frenchman’s Cay is a very popular yachting destination.
Frenchman’s Cay shares the same tropical climate as the rest of the BVI with warm to hot daytime temperatures throughout the year. There is more rain from the end of June to the end of November with a very short dry season from February to April.
