Soggy Dollar Bar, Jost Van Dyke, BVI

4 of 14

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.
