  • Address: White Bay, Jost van Dyke, British Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands
Yachties and Caribbean sailors are a regular fixture at the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost van Dyke, in the British Virgin Islands. This legendary bar is reputed as the birthplace of the BVI’s signature cocktail, the Painkiller made with the iconic Pusser’s British Royal Navy rum. The bar’s name comes from its remote location on the sands of White Bay, accessible only by boat. There’s no dock, so patrons simply toss anchor in the protected bay and swim to shore, rendering their dollars soggy in the process. Its arguably one of the most popular and quintessentially Caribbean ways to spend an afternoon in the islands, swinging in a hammock, lounging in a beach chair, and sipping strong boat drinks.

Practical Info

The Soggy Dollar Bar is on the beach of White Bay on the south side of Jost van Dyke. The bar is only reachable by boat, and requires a swim to shore. Once there, you can play island castaway—with a bar full of rum.
