So, what should you do with per day to spend inside the Virgin Islands, if you’re not too into snorkeling or diving? Why not sit back on a BVI boat tour and soak up the scenery with the world’s best beaches...and beach bars?
There’s lots of reasons why the beach bars inside the British Virgin Islands are the best. One reason is their location--on the world’s most breathtaking beaches. In accessory for weathered barstools, you’ll find hammocks, and cocktail service around the beach--even while you float in water. Instead of a meat market or pick up joint, you’ll look for a cool, relaxed vibe, where your earnings level and occupation just don’t matter. Instead of loud, thumping techno music which makes conversation impossible without screaming, you’ll hear steel drums with a cool breeze and plenty of laughter. Sound great? It's. Here’s what to do.
Start the day at Foxy’s Bar on Jost Van Dyke in Great Harbour. You need to check in at customs anyway...you may as well stop by for a quick one. The bar opens at 9:30am, and also the kitchen at 11:30am. If it’s a Friday or Saturday, you’re in luck, because Foxy fires in the “Grillzebo” and cooks a Caribbean style BBQ, featuring the world’s best ribs and mahi-mahi that melts inside your mouth. Foxy’s brews its very own beer and distills its very own rum, called “Foxy’s Firewater Rum.” The drink menu is fantastic and the speciality of the house is the Sly Fox and Dread Fox. Even though the hours away in a hammock under a palm tree while listening to Foxy sing and tell jokes towards the crowd.
Next, nearby from Foxy’s on gorgeous White Bay is the Soggy Dollar. This will be the birthplace of the original “Painkiller” as well as the world’s first real “swim up” bar--about the easiest method to get there is to swim in from your boat! After ordering a Painkiller, it’s time and energy to play the Ring Game. It sounds simple enough--get the ring on the hook--but its challenging, and its addicting! Soggy Dollar is small, friendly and relaxed, and on the most beautiful stretch of beach within the Caribbean. The only thing they’re intent on here is relaxation.
Just along the bay is Ivan’s Relaxed Bar and Campground, where country singer Kenny Chesney shot the recording “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem” we have spent time here. From head to feet, Ivan’s is protected with sea shells collected from the beach. Spend time at the bar, and you’ll understand the need for the campground. Pull up a stretch of beach and luxuriate in a nap in the sun.
Finally, no BVI Bout Tour is finished without a visit to the Willy T, a three-storey floating restaurant and bar in Bight Harbour. “Willy T” is brief for William Thornton, among the islands’ most famous residents. William Thornton will be the architect chosen to design the Capitol Building in Washington D.C., which is why he was paid just $500.00 and given a parcel of land in D.C. The Willy Its a siren for sailors, and a lot afternoons, you’ll find boats bound 5 and 6 deep., but during high season on a weekend night there might be 30 or maybe more! The reason is the party. It’s a hectic crowd that frequently turns wild, with no doubt you’ll see a few birthday suits as people plunge with the stern with the Willy T in to the crystal blue waters below. You never know...you just could be one of them!
