Are you ready to get those dollars soggy? Moor up in the gorgeous white bay and make that swim over to the best party in the BVI. This beachfront bar is packed everyday with all kinds of bikini-clad characters, all who share one thing in common; the painkiller in their hand. This pudding in a cup originated in White Bay and once you're 5 or 6 deep (got to keep that stack of cups high after all) you really will forget that pain is even a thing. Feeling a little woozy after all the painkillers? An afternoon nap in one of the hammocks strung between palm trees is always a given - plus it's one of the most gram-worthy spots around all the islands. And of course, make sure you don't leave without having a good go at the bar's famous ring game. All you need to do is get the ring on the hook, sound simple? Boring? Come back to use after you've spent an hour there and still come nowhere near.
Foxy's has been an island institution for decades, and for good reason. Famous for it's weekly beach BBQ's and annual New Year's Eve celebration which attracts thousands from all over the globe. One of the main highlights of visiting this true Caribbean-style bar is Foxy Callwood himself, who, if you're lucky enough to meet him, entertains the crowds with impromptu songs and jokes. The rum and draft-beer that they serve is made on site and it will give you the fuel you need to dance the night away with Foxy, at Foxy's.
Ever dreamed of being a pirate? Jump aboard at Willy T's and they'll make sure that dream comes true. The William Thornton is a floating bar anchored just off Norman Island, with a reputation that precedes it. If you want to catch Willy T's before the revelry ensues then they have a tame and rather delicious lunch hour for you to sink your teeth into. However, the rite of passage once aboard the ship is to jump from the top deck and make sure before you leave you've covered yourself in as many Willy T's tattoos that you can find space for. Thanks to the famous shot-ski on board, a water-ski with four shot glasses attached, after not too long it will be truly be a pirate's life for you.
Head on down to the island of Anegada, with miles of deserted beaches and the freshest lobster you can find. And of course, where best to enjoy it all than Cow Wreck Beach Bar! With the lobster and conch plucked fresh from the reef, it's a must-try when visiting the BVI. Along with the delicious food, enjoy a painkiller that rivals that of Soggy Dollar, or try the signature Cow Wreck cocktails - the Cow Killer and the Wreck Punch. Set on a blinding white sand beach with stunning turquoise waters as far as the eye can see, when you think of beach bars in the Caribbean, Cow Wreck has it all!
If you're looking for good food, good drinks and a great relaxing setting then look no further than this gem. At Pirate's Bight the vibe is much more chilled but with the beautiful scenery and the rum-laden menu, you have everything you need for a perfect beach bar atmosphere. Make sure you arrive in time to hear the cannon for happy hour, then sit back and enjoy a delicious punch and an authentic roti - probably the best one in the BVI.
