Love Gertrude's Because It's a Real Beach Bar

The crowd goes to the Soggy Dollar on White Beach but we love Gertrude's! It's THE BEACH! It's "here's the bottles - now make your own drink"! The conch fritters are really good and Cuban cigars are reasonable and can be smoked on a beach chair. The only problem that we've had is that the... read more

We spent the day at JVD. We had a great lunch at Gertrude's. View and atmosphere are outstanding! We were there on a Sunday in June. Beaches and bars were busy, but not overly crowded or packed. Fantastic time!

Delicious Roti at Gertrude's! We had the chicken roti and fish roti....can't go wrong with either one. We enjoyed Olga and Mary very much! You can't beat having bottles of liquor set in front of you to mix your own drink with! The banana pain killer was delicious! Can't wait to get back and visit Olga and Mary!

If you're on the west end of White Bay and need a snack, have one of Gertrude's all beef hot dogs! What a treat! $3 beer and a great view of White Bay. What more can you ask for.

Look, there are a ton of great spots on White Bay and I have been to them all. Gertrude's is what a beach bar on Jost Van Dyke should be. There are no worries/rules, no long lines of tourists or overpriced drinks. Gertrude is awesome! She is a character, and part of the fabric of the island. If you don't... More

Gertrude's was great! Olga was amazing, really accommodating and willing to go out of her way to feed you even after hours. The food is spectacular, we had chicken roti, conch fritters, amazing burgers and fresh fries, ! Keep a tab going all day, there are great lounge chairs right our front for you to use right on the beach... More

Must visit and order a drink that you can pour your own. This in itself is unique. Olga is a great lady and fun to talk to. Pull up a chair and chat. On the beach with amazing views. They are re-doing their bathrooms and they are really nice! The food is good here as well. I had the Chicken... More

We spent most of the afternoon hanging out with crew and new friends. The view was great and Olga, our barmaid, was fun and fantastic. The food was great, drinks reasonable and staff friendly.
