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