Good painkillers

Sailed with Marauder Sailing Charters and anchored for the night in White Bay and we swim as tradition to get the painkillers. Great atmosphere and good drinks. And off course we payed with soggy dollars!

Home of the world famous painkiller. These drinks raise to their namesake. We had a great day here. The drink line was a little long\slow but hey .... We're on a freaking island!

There is no place better to have a painkiller than at the place they were made famous. Beautiful beach with warm and calm waters. Food is great too. If you want to be alone don't stop here but it is a fantastic spot to people watch and a place you shouldn't miss!!

Sometimes memories are best left as they are. My experience has often been that the "magic" of a travel discovery cannot be easily repeated. And that makes perfect sense to me because a second visit lacks that rush that a brand new experience evokes. A return to The Soggy Dollar is a case in point. A few years ago I... More

Love love love the Soggy Dollar and have for decades. It is getting crazy busy - like spring break in Daytona! The good news is you can stroll down the beach and enjoy all the beach has to offer.

Best way to see Soggy Dollar. Pull the catamaran up to right before the surf breaks, put your dollars in your swimtrunks and dive in to the turquoise water. Swim up to a beach that seems like what you see in the movies and have the bartender pour you a painkiller! Pay with the soggy dollars and enjoy! It is... More

Great option on the beach. Fun, seemed to be where the party was always happening. Be sure to try to painkillers. We did go when there was a lot people, so service was slow.

We were met by arrogant waitress in Soggy. Her behavior ruined everything. As much we were exited to visit the place as much we were disappointed. Famous Painkiller happened to be not great at all. We had a plan to have a dinner in Soggy, but after pretty rude demands to make reservation within 10 minutes or to leave the... More

HUGE hamburger. But the view was outstanding, boated in, swam in (can't swim); had a life vest. There is no dock. Too much sun, rum and water - had to sit and eat to feel better. wow - what a day. If you have a chance to do this; do it.

Think, crowded bar/giftshop and not many places to sit. Worth an hour but not more. Nice beach to see.
