Callwood Rum Distillery

The Callwood family runs the only rum distillery still operating in the British Virgin Islands a short walk from the beach at Cane Garden Bay. Once known as Estate Arundel, the Callwood Rum Distillery still produces rum much the same way it was done 300 years ago still using sugarcane when others have moved into producing their rums with molasses.

Little has changed during the 300 years of operation. Wooden barrels filled with aging rum inside, and the building itself seems to have changed very little as well seemingly to keep it's historic feel. You can imagine being there during a time of yesteryear when pirates once ruled the area. Admission to Callwood Rum Distillery is free, but if you want to take photos a small donation is required or or buy at least one bottle of rum and you should definitely ask about a narrative tour, which explains a bit of it's history and the process of rum making.

Green VI Glass Studio

Green VI Glass Blowing Sudio is a must stop for anyone visiting Cane Garden Bay. Located just outside of Myett's you can visit the open air studio and watch the creation take shape before your eyes. The studio was created out of the need for a more sustainable living here in the British Virgin Islands finding creative ways of recycling some of the waste that is created. Feel free to ask question from the artists and if you're luck you can try your hand at creating something beautiful. The Green VI Glass Studio also offers some stunningly creative glassworks that you can purchase to remember your trip to Cane Garden Bay or pick up an item or two to bring home as gifts. Everything from Vases, Jewelry, Pendents and serving ware you are sure to time something.

Cane Garden Bay

  • World Class Surfing

    Surfing has become very popular over the last 15 years in the British Virgin Islands And why not? During the winter months when the north swell arrives on our shores, the point on the eastern side of Cane Garden Bay serves up some world class right to left breaks which offers up some of the longest wave rides in all of the BVI. The North East point of Cane Garden Bay has exposed rock & coral beach. In a 5-7 plus foot swell it has great wave action. The point is a long ride and if you pick it up far out you'll get a good 150-200 yard ride. The waves may lose a little halfway where you can jump off and paddle back or ride it all the way. Cane Garden takes at least a 5 plus foot swell to create ride-able waves. This spot has to have the right conditions and when they do the waves are world class. Surfing here puts riders to experience close encounters with the reef and there are rocks that you have to be cautious of running along the left on the breaks.

  • Other Water Sports

    Swimming, Stand-Up-Paddle Boarding, Kayaking and Snorkeling are a few other activities available at Myett's and Cane Garden Bay. We have Stand-Up-Paddle boards sitting right outside of Myett's for you to try. Paddle around the bay and enjoy a relaxing adventure as you cruise in and out of the yachts at anchor. Or do yourself a favor and find yourself in your own world during a sunset paddle. If Snorkeling is your idea of spending an enjoyable afternoon, Cane Garden Bay is protected by the outer reef that is easily reachable from shore. Grab your gear and take a leisurely swim to the reef and catch a view of some of the great sea life that lives here. Check out the Parrot Fish, Octopus, lobsters and more. For a little more excitement you will be lucky enough to catch the large Tarpon feeding on the small Fry fish.
