The store’s called St. John Beach Bum, and it has everything you could ever need for a great day at the beach. Need a beach chair? They’ve got it. Snorkel gear? They’ve got that too. Sand toys, a cooler or perhaps a beer pong table? Yes, they’ve got that too. How fun is that?!
Andrew Cameron and Kara Morgan opened the store last week, and we love the concept. You can either rent or purchase almost anything you need for a great day at the beach. And the best part – it’s located right at the ferry dock on the second floor of the blue building (just across from St. John Spice), so it can be your first stop when you step foot on island. You can’t get more convenient than that!
And if Andrew’s face looks familiar to you, well it’s because he worked downstairs at the info booth for the past three years.
The couple plans to add items to their inventory in the upcoming weeks, including GoPro cameras that you can rent, beach games and more. They also plan to sell local stuff like the Castaways shirts you see in the picture above.
St. John Beach Bums is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week. You can also find them on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/StJohnBeachBum – Make sure to check them out and give them a “like.” They post some pretty amazing sunset photos there. In the meantime, check out some more pics…
