Marina Cay

This tiny island is the subject of author Robb White’s novel, Two on the Isle. White and his wife Rodie bought Marina Cay in 1937 and proceeded to build their home perched atop the peak, an idyllic setting to be sure. Through many struggles, they managed to complete their task … which was no mean feat in those days. A set of unfortunate circumstances, World War II and an uncooperative BVI government brought their dream to a disappointing end.

Two on the isle is a good read which I highly recommend for anyone who loves the British Virgin Islands or may be considering building a life here. Today, Robb & Rodie’s original home serves as a reading lounge/book swap for Pusser’s hotel & villa guests.

Charles Tobias, owner of Pusser’s, purchased Marina Cay then set about building a very small and intimate resort, gift shop and another Pusser’s Restaurant on this charming, 8 acre island.
