You have not arrived on St. John until you've been to the Beach Bar

Great setting for drinks at the end of the day. Island specials including run punch. Sat on the sand at small tables.

The Beach Bar is located right on a nice beach in Cruz Bay. We stopped there with our 5 kids and they had a blast playing in the sand and water while we enjoyed cocktails and lunch. Food was good took. No official kid's menu, but they have chicken tenders, burgers and nachos.

Went at night with another couple and saw some music and had some drinks, it was great. Then went with our 7 year old after a sail in the afternoon and had some delicious snacks and played with some of the free games offered!

What a fun place!! We went here three times while on St. John could have gone more, but so many places in St. John to eat, drink and hang out, we wanted to try as many as we could. The Beach Bar is on the beach in Cruz Bay. You can sit at tables on the beach either in the... More

We came here twice. This is the place to come for happy hour and entertainment. Directly on the beach. The first night we sat at the bar had some painkillers and coconut mojitos and the band playing was just fabulous. It gets really busy here and is lots of fun. The second time the Violent Femmes were here and the... More

This place is exactly what you think of when you think of a beach bar. It sits right on the beach but is undercover so you can sit in the shade. Had seat arraign the railing and a larger bar in the middle with seats all the way around. Nachos were awesome and loved the fact that everything came on... More

The fish sandwich became a staple for me! Very fresh...able to sit on beach day and night while enjoying lunch, sun, or music. Good value

The Beach Bar became our favorite place to sit, relax & enjoy great drinks, food, music & phenomenal positive energy at any time during the day or evening. This place represents the laid back happy vibe of St. John. We can't wait to visit again in July! The food is simple, inexpensive & cooked to perfection. Happy Hours are indeed... More
