Best beach bar

The best beach bar in the Carribean. Loved the beach and bar. Cottages for rent also. Small beach with lots of day trippers. Very friendly place. Can not wait to return!

I was sad to see how commercialized this has become; however, still one of the best painkillers in the BVI.

Not to be missed by anyone visiting Jost. White Bay Harbor is pristine, the beach is amazing and the only place to be seen and to see the relaxed attitude of this idilic island is, of course, Soggy Dollar Bar & Restaurant. They have a wonderful exclusive dinning experience in the evenings. Amazing local cuisine combined with their legendary Pain... More

If you are in the BVI's you have to go to the Soggy Dollar Bar. It has to be the best bar I have ever been to in my life! We spent the last two days of a week long BVI boat trip at Jost van Dyke and spent most of both days at the Soggy Dollar. On the second... More

There's simply nothing better than a Painkiller on the white sand beach with killer views followed by a cheeseburger and then a siesta in a hammock under the shade of palm trees. The bartenders and shop keepers are all kind, personable and pass no judgement regarding how early you order your first cocktail. 😀 Cute merchandise, highly recommend the fitted... More

During our visit to White Bay on Jost Van Dyke, BVI, we spent some time at the Soggy Dollar Bar. The Soggy Dollar is where the Painkiller cocktail was created. It's a delicious and refreshing drink. Stop in and have at least one. You won't regret it. The Soggy Dollar also offers a variety of food items, souvenir t-shirts, and... More

This place never disappoints! The bartenders are a riot and the beach and water are just gorgeous. The new "mango" painkiller is a nice refreshing change from the original - of course you will try several of each! Cute gift shop. Bring your college flag or police or fire dept. patch to hang at the bar - they are from... More

Spent most of the day hanging out, eating lunch, drinking adult beverages and enjoying the sites at the Soggy Dollar. This remote beach bar is one of a kind. You must arrive by boat, swim in, eat/drink and swim back out. The beach is beautiful, the drinks are great and the food is even better. Whats a day boating the... More
