The 12 Best Beach Bars in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands

How Many Have You Visited? 1

The U.S. Virgin Islands and the nearby British Virgin Islands are made for island-hopping via ferry, sailboat or private charter. But oftentimes, island-hopping in these parts is really just code for bar-hopping. #dontjudge

Here’s a list of our favorite beach bars to hit. Some are oldies but goodies, while others are a bit newer to the scene.

One Love Bar and Grill

Owned by Foxy’s oldest son Seddy, the sign outside reads “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Clothes, No Problem,” which pretty much sums up Jost Van Dyke, dubbed the Barefoot Island. Seddy woos customers with his magic tricks while his wife Raquel tends bar. Open until sunset, the clientele can move over to dad’s joint for after-dark fun.

Foxy’s Bar

Home to one of the best New Years Eve parties in the world, Foxy’s in Jost Van Dyke is also a pretty cool place the other 364 days of the year. Foxy is famous in these parts, and if you’re lucky he’ll be around to tell some of his legendary tales. Bring a business card and staple it to one of the wooden rafters to memorialize your visit.

Bomba’s Surfside Shack

This is quite literally a shack in Tortola known for its wild Full Moon parties and “mushroom tea,” but it’s also in a perfect position for watching surfers on Apple Bay during the day. Ladies are welcome to hang their undergarments on the walls before leaving if they’re into that sort of thing (which we’re not but don’t judge those who are).

  1. Fabulous list!! We have been to them all, except for B-Line!! Must get over there. We also would add Corsair’s to the list!! They make a fabulous Bloody Mary!

  2. lived on STJ in the late 1990’s and was lucky enough to make the rounds. The Bight had Billy Bones and those were the days before Joe’s. Worked a stint at the beach bar when it was Pusser’s. Used to hang with Seddy..not sure if he had his bar in 1997. The good ole days!

  3. I agree that you missed Corsairs. Best Bloody Mary, and God awful Absinth. Been to 6 of them, will try to finish the list on my next visit.
