“Soggy Dollar and One Love Bars”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

When approaching White Bay, do not be fooled by the structures to the right, unless you are not interested in the Soggy Dollar Bar or One Love Bar, those are located to the left. This is a must stop if you would like to try the original Painkiller drink from the Soggy Dollar Bar, which by the way is fantastic!! Also, if you can go over to the One Love Bar for lunch and for the magic. There is a man there who does magic tricks that we all could not figure out, and we were truly entertained!! If you like quiet this is not the place for you, but if you like social fun it is the place for you!!

“Boats pull right up to the shore”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Depending on what you are looking for in a spot, this could be good or bad. The good is that this beach has the famous bar Soggy Dollar (spelling), home of the Pain Killer drink. It is a busy scene with one bathroom. Because the boats are allowed to motor right on up to the shore you are not going to snorkel here, nor feel safe venturing further than 15 feet from shore.

“Clear blue water, white sand and bars on the beach!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We hung out in front of the Soggy Dollar for hours. Calm blue waters and beautiful scenery. Plenty of lounge chairs were available for the eight of us to grab and bring to the water's edge. When we had a little too much sun, we retreated to the shade of palm trees to lie in hammocks. A few cocktails, some great bar food and more relaxing in the sun...this was a great day. Worth the day trip and I expect to make more visits.

“My favorite Beach.”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

My favorite Beach, it's just beautiful. Water is so clear. Love all the boats that anchor in to stop at soggy dollar for the day. Great to meet new people from all over.
