Soggy Dollar Bar

      In the 1970's George Myrick built the establishment The Sandcastle Hotel and the Soggy Dollar Bar, but also a cocktail, the painkiller. A smooth blend of dark rum with tropical juices with just the right garnishment. For over 40 years this now Caribbean classic has been beckoning boaters from all over the world to come anchor in the beautiful White Bay and go spend some soggy dollars...

Hammocks and lounge chairs galore...
Mick, a very goood bartender, and ready for anything just check out his batman belt.

Jost Van Dyke

Jost Van Dyke is a beautiful island within the British Virgin Islands.  It is the smallest at 3 square miles of the four main islands of the B.V.I.  The island has only a few hundred full time residents yet caters to thousands of visitors every year.  Most visitors to this secluded island arrive by private boat or public ferry vessels which run daily routes between these islands. JVD has many boater friendly beach bars and restaurants to cater to hungry party goers. Foxy's Beach Bar, Soggy Dollar Bar, Ivan's Stress free Bar; the list goes on from here. White Bay is an absolutely amazing beach with a variety of beach bars waiting to be explored.  Perfect white sand, frozen painkiller, light cool breeze, shaded cotton hammock, aah...
