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!

You won't be disappointed. Limited menu offerings, but the excel at everything the make. Service was amazingly hospitable and can't beat the location on the gorgeous white sandy beach on Jost Van Dyke.

The Soggy Dollar derives its name from the days when a buck would buy at least one drink. Sailors without tenders or dinghies would swim ashore with soaked currency. Food is good, but that's not why you are here. Drinks are generously poured and the scene at late night can be a riot. Don't miss it.

This was the highlight of our trip to the VI! So much fun! The people there are super friendly, the drinks were delicious, and there is plenty of beach for everyone! As others have said, you have to swim to the bar which makes it an even cooler adventure. Definitely a MUST!

There are a dozen beach bars ion the BVI's that could claim the title of the "best," but our vote goes to the Soggy Dollar. Other than their claim to fame as the inventor of the "Painkiller," the Soggy Dollar is right on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. It gets its name from the fact that... More

They call it the Soggy Dollar since you literally have to get off of your boat and get in the water (get wet) to get to... More

Best Painkiller on the island... Great atmosphere. A must do when in the BVI..... Laid back and just roll with it, that's what island life is all about.
