First off, the Soggy Dollar apparently invented the Painkiller, and I sure believe them because they were the best we had in the BVIs. We swam to the bar from our boat right after lunch, and the bar was certainly crowded, but not in a bad way. The beach was packed with families, couples - a whole mix of people just having a good time. There were kids playing games and people hanging around to eat/drink/relax in the sun. It was very busy but we were still able to snag a table and chairs for our large group. Bartenders were very friendly and we loved the bustling, party-fun atmosphere which is a change from many places in the BVIs that tend to be on the quiet side. After walking next door to Gertrudes, we came back to Soggys for some snacks which were pretty good too. Definitely worth a visit - bring your party pants!

We had to try out the infamous Soggy Dollar and I have to say, the bartender was great and beach didn't disappoint... But a short walk down the beach gets you your own chaise lounge, the shade of palm trees, not as many boats blocking your view and killer drinks. One Love bar was much more our taste! Highly recommend you grab a Pain Killer @ Soggy Dollar, but then explore

We went mid afternoon on a thursday and the were 100's of loud drunken people there, on the beach outside and in the sea.

This was not what we were expecting in the BVI. We realised a little later that they were ferried in on all sorts of vessels and left late afternoon.

If you are after a Benidorm experience in the BVI then this is for you, but it was crowded, drunken, raucous and loud.

Not sure if it is like this everyday so chose your days wisely!!

Have been coming to Jost since 1995 and taking the taxi over the hill. We have continually rated Soggy as one of the best bars in the Caribbean. NO MORE. Too many day trippers, cruise boats anchored off shore. 20 minutes to get to the bar, not worth it. Better off going down the beach to Seddy's, Gertudes or one of the other. Times have changed and so has the Soggy Dollar Bar.

When you go to the Soggy Dollar you must order the Nilla Killa. It was recommened to us by the Captain of New Horizons. It is a must have when you are there.
