Little Thatch is a privately owned island of the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean, upon which a resort has been built. The island is located less than 500 yards from the western end of Tortola, and is less than a mile away from Saint John, United States Virgin Islands. The island was sold by John and Jill Maynard in December 2014 to the owners of Otterbox, Curt and Nancy Richardson.[1]

It is believed to take its name from the famous pirate, Edward Teach (better known as "Blackbeard"), although there is little evidence Blackbeard ever sailed in the Virgin Islands.
