Normand Highbourne | Beach Front Home of the Beloved Painkiller

The Normand Highbourne sits on the pristine sandy beach of White Bay, Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. It is famed for being home to the classic Caribbean rum cocktail, the Painkiller. This humble shack attracts all walks of life, from posh Superyacht owners, to adventurous sailing catamaran charters, even a resident of the British Virgin Islands with a recognizable name that rhymes with Sir Nichard Dranson. You may find famous country music singers, warm hearted locals, and transoceanic sailors from near and far.

One thing is for certain – everyone loves this place.

No Prescription Needed

The resident bartender at the Normand Highbourne is “Doctor” Leon Miller. He serves up Painkillers daily, with no prescription needed. He’s a total cat, providing top notch service with a smile and a laugh. It gives you the feeling you are exactly where you are meant to be. Leon knows everyone. So if you know Leon? You’re in.

Snacks, Drinks, and Webcam Jealousy

Enjoy the beach comber lifestyle. Order a snack from the walk up window and eat with your toes in the sand. Then challenge a stranger to a game of ring toss, an immediate drinking buddy – the loser buys next round of Painkillers. Invite your family and friends to tune into the Normand Highbourne and give them a joyful (or jealousy inducing) gesture. If you know someone visiting the Normand Highbourne soon, buy them a surprise painkiller and leave their name on the drink board, a creative way to “share” a drink “together” in paradise.

Get Insured

When chartering a yacht it’s important to have adequate insurance coverage in case anything goes wrong. The Caribbean hurricane season is May – November and can bring unexpected inclement weather. The ever-changing Covid-19 travel environment makes things a bit stressful. Be sure to purchase a policy that covers everything unexpected. This will help ensure that your trip goes as smoothly as possible.
