Top Caribbean Beach Bars
Soggy Dollar Bar, Jost Van Dyke, BVI
The Scene: Just steps from the water’s edge, this simple shack has walls covered with quirky sandcastle murals and only 10 wooden stools at the bar. Wander a few feet down the beach and you’ll find plenty of hammocks and beach chairs, where you can sip one of the Soggy Dollar Painkiller rum drinks, now a famous Caribbean cocktail. Dating to the early 70s, this watering hole is a favorite with sailors because until recently the only way you could get here was to swim ashore from a boat (the owners recently added a road).
Signature Drink: The Painkiller, dark rum, cream of coconut, and juices, sprinkled with fresh grated nutmeg; $6.
Don’t Miss: Chilling out on a hammock before swimming back to your boat.
