Photo of the Day – Soggy Dollar Bar, Jost Van Dyke

Soggy Dollar Bar Jost Van Dyke BVI

One of the best experiences of my Caribbean cruise with Carnival a while back was our stop in Tortola.

Thanks to a tip from a fellow cruiser, we’d booked a catamaran trip to the beautiful island of Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands.

Our specific destination? The infamous Soggy Dollar Bar.

Home of the original “Painkiller” and the self-proclaimed most famous beach bar in the world, the Soggy Dollar Bar sits on one of the most perfect stretches of sand in the Caribbean, White Bay Beach.

The Painkiller is a top-secret tropical concoction of premium dark Rum, Cream of Coconut, pineapple, and orange juice topped with freshly grated Grenadian nutmeg. Conveniently, this delightful adult beverage pairs perfectly with a hammock and the gentle swaying of palm trees.

There’s no dock on White Bay, so when you arrive plan on getting a little wet to get ashore (hence the bar’s name). But it’s well worth the brief dip in the turquoise Caribbean sea. I mean, you were going to get in eventually anyway, right?
