Make sure you swim in and get your money wet. It is a great spot with friendly service even when they are slammed. The Tranquilizer is their invention and a must do.

After the devastation of the hurricanes, we were almost afraid to go back to confront our memories at Soggy Dollar! But the owners, Jerry and Tish, have done a fantastic job of recreating the same vibe and great feeling that the Origin of the "Painkiller"...More

Enough said. Stop in to get a drink and go next door to Hendo’s Hideout to hang out, play volleyball and get real food.

Good food, big portions. Must have the Conch Fritters. Beach is very clean but I didn't like that there were too many boats anchored too close to the shore where people were swimming. No umbrellas on the beach, recliner chairs only

If you have control over your schedule, don’t rush this stop. This one is to be enjoyed at a very leisurely pace. If you are a police officer, bring a patch with you, and they’ll staple it on the rafters with hundreds of others. Thank...More

This is a perfect stop while exploring the BVI. There are only two ways to get there; by dinghy or by swimming. This is more of a drinking spot than an eating spot, but so beautiful that you will fall in love with the warm...More
