Top Bars on Jost Van Dyke
Jost Van Dyke has some of the best beach bars in the Caribbean
Jost Van Dyke is known around the world for its lively beach bars. Signature drinks, authentic cuisine, and warm Caribbean hospitality mingle against a background of white sand, palm trees, and aqua blue water. No yacht charter in the BVI is complete without stopping by these three iconic bars.
Soggy Dollar Bar
The Soggy Dollar Bar located on White Bay is named for the soggy dollars in your pockets as you swim up for a drink, since there isn’t a dock. It’s a carefree atmosphere where you can enjoy beverages, food and conversation in a relaxed, barefoot, tropical setting. The Soggy Dollar is the home of the Original Painkiller, the famous Caribbean cocktail created in the 1970s. Made with premium dark rum, cream of coconut, pineapple and orange juice, and topped with Grenadian nutmeg, a Painkiller is worth the swim to the bar. You can also enjoy a great selection of food at breakfast and lunch, or experience one of their candlelit dinners with a menu that changes daily.
Every day is a party at Great Harbor hotspot, Foxy’s. Sample their specialty drinks, the Sly Fox and the Dread Fox, made with their own house rum. If you prefer a cold, malted beverage, Foxy’s offers draft beers from their own microbrewery, the only brewhouse in the BVI. Their menu features Caribbean-style food and famous BBQ, with chicken, ribs, mahi mahi and more. Local musicians entertain in their outdoor area, the Outback. If you’re planning a private party, reserve the Upper Crust dining.
One Love Bar and Grill
“No shoes, no shirt, no problem” is the motto at White Bay’s One Love Bar and Grill. An intimate beach bar built with driftwood, buoys and old netting that washed up on shore, it was opened in December 1999. It’s a place to relax surrounded by the natural beauty of the BVI. Be sure to try a Bushwacker, the house specialty drink, sample some delicious food, and listen to live music from owner, Seddy Callwood. Be sure to bring an extra article of clothing along, as everyone who visits One Love leaves something behind.
