My sister, husband and I traveled to JWD on a cruise excursion from Tortola back in April 2010. This day is still talked about in great length regularly. Here we go...
-Pour your own drinks. Yep, you heard right. We were slaphappy within 60-min of being there, and it was only 10am. You pay for a drink, they give you the bottles, and pour away. This was the setup of a rough late day hangover.
-GEORGIA! What a peach! She is just divine, and the nicest person behind a bar. She was entertaining and funny, and kept us laughing all day.
-Beach. The beach iteself is gorgeous. What an oasis away from it all! We would love to come back to JWD and stay.
-Instant friends with everyone around the bar. We were all gobsmacked within and hour, and all instant friends. What a great day!
-$$$... given you pour your own drinks, we walked out with a bill barely over $100 for all 3 of us to drink for 4 hours straight. Best bang for the buck at this place, but make sure to tip generously, they definitely deserve it!
-'Ferry' out to JWD. I was thrilled this thing made it there and back in one piece, I am sure it is a close call every day. Make sure you sit outside (up top), as otherwise your lungs will never forgive you. The exhaust inside is rough.
-I guess the hangover, but really it was worth every single drop.
-Lack of food options. No real place to absorb all the alcohol. I recommend having a hearty meal before traveling over to JWD for the day.
