It's a ritual - moor your boat - jump in the water - order a bushwacker and burger - pay with your soggy dollars. A must do when passing White Bay in Virgin Islands!

Real remote. Perfect spot to pull up a boat and drink for a while. Nice views, the bartenders were really cool also. Maybe also venture down to the rest of the beach and check out some of the other businesses also.

Excellent Painkillers, of course as they invented them and one of the best bartenders in the BVI..however everyone knows it. We moored in White Bay and dingeyed in to the SDB at the same time as the boats came in from St Thomas, it was a mad house. Forget about getting lunch the lines were insane, so we left and... More

One of our favorite day trips for sure! This place is amazing. The beach is unreal - one of the most beautiful I've seen in my life. The food is great and so if the service. Mic is the best bartender. My husband and I loved it there! A must do!

This is what it looks like. Right on the water, palm trees swaying, friendly staff and all the customers having a good time. For a laid back place the service is very efficient. Mic the bartender will serve you quickly and with a smile, and remember you each day you are there. You can order a drink and lay on... More

Nothing beats jumping off the boat into one of the most beautiful bays on the planet, swimming onto the beach, and ordering a pain killer at SDB. You simply have to do it.

...But we were there in the off season and it wasn't crowded at all. There were a few boats and maybe 20 people. It was a neat little experience, having to swim onto the beach to get to the bar, but we weren't looking to party and spend all day there. We did get a painkiller (which wasn't my favorite).... More

It's an island party and you are invited, this is a small beach bar with a great vibe, and world wide fame as the creators of the painkiller. Any afternoon, but in particular on the weekends this place will be hoppin. The bar is small, and no doubt Mic will be there to tell you our two cocktails cost "12... More

Couldn't have been a more perfect day trip as it was off season and everything else was closed. The roti's there are authentic and delicious. Their famous Painkiller adult beverage is worth at least 3 or 4 tries :). BeCh amenities were great for day Guests as we were.

Had so much fun relaxing sailing the BVI's and drinking all the fantastic drinks. Nothing like a painkiller or two on the beach!
