It seems like every time we turn around, St. John is topping another “best” list. Well today we’d like to extend out congrats to a certain bar here on island for being the only bar on St. John to be named as one of the 50 Best Caribbean Beach Bars, according to the Caribbean Journal.
Drum roll please…
The Beach Bar! No surprise there 🙂
Here’s what the Caribbean Journal had to say about their “best” list which was released earlier this week:
It may seem like a list of 50 beach bars is a lot. But when we finished compiling this momentous list, we weren’t even breathing hard. That’s because the Caribbean is the beach bar capital of Planet Earth, and we could easily have placed another 100 beach bars on here. But these are our favorites, whether it’s because of the beach itself, the famous cocktail, the food, the service, or the personalities. The primary prerequisite? The bar has to be located on the beach itself — not just on the water, or across the road from the beach. There has to be sand! These are the Caribbean beach bars we’re raising a glass to.
The Beach Bar: The best beach bar on St John offers great views in the heart of Cruz Bay. It’s as much a beach pub as a beach bar, and one of the very calm island’s hot spots.
They also mentioned a few other of our favorite places here in the Virgin Islands. Here’s what they had to say:
Soggy Dollar Bar: This isn’t just a beach bar. It’s a legend. It’s a place that attracts pilgrims from all over the world to taste its famous Painkiller; it’s set on a spectacular beach in Jost Van Dyke; has warm, friendly service; and makes every guest feel like a proud adventurer. It’s the best beach bar in the Caribbean.
Foxy’s: It’s home to the most famous New Year’s Eve party in the Caribbean, but this legendary bar on Jost Van Dyke is a classic beach bar the other 364 days of the year, too.
Pirate’s Bight: There’s just one thing on Norman Island: this bar. Just make sure you try a Pirate Punch before you leave (the one that comes in the pail).
