Gertrudes is right next to The Soggy Dollar. We slid down because we thought we'd get lunch a little quicker there as it was less crowded. Turned out to be a smart move. Great food, and what could be better than pouring your own Painkiller?!? Highly recommended.

Right down the beach from Soggy Dollar is Gertrude's. You get to mix your own drinks. You tell the bartender what you want to drink and she give you the ingredients to mix yourself. Gertrude herself was sitting behind the bar and was a little rude in the beginning, but warmed up over time and eventually wanted us to sign... More

Gertrudes is a great place to hang out on White Bay. With so many day boats and cruise passengers visiting the Soggy Dollar is just mobbed all the time. If you go just 100 ft down the beach, you can spend the day at Gertrudes, and be close enough to observe the chaos but not be in the middle of... More

The burgers are huge, the service friendlier and much quicker than the Soggy Dollar. Great place to sit and watch the boats and some really mis-fit swim costumes.

By far my favorite bar in the BVIs. Great bartenders, very happy to help you and the best part you can mix your own drinks!!! Forget about Foxys, this is a definite must go to place if your going to Jost Van Dyke.

I went into this beach bar to get a genuine Cuban Cigar, only to find they sell fakes! I can not legally buy them in the States but always get them when I go outside our borders. I have had people in Mexico and the D.R try to do the same thing. I just didn't expect this in a bar.... More

The food here is really good. I liked that you mix your own drinks. So my pain killer was AWESOME. Try their food as it is well worth the price.
