Tiny, volcanic, and every sailor’s favourite desert island, Jost Van Dyke is only eight square miles in size with just 222 permanent residents. With White Bay, it lays claim to what is consistently voted one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, and the Soggy Dollar Bar only adds to the sheer sense of Caribbean fantasy-come-true and is only accessible by ferry or private boat. The Soggy Dollar bar is appropriately named as there is no dock at the beach, the only way to reach the bar is to anchor off the beach, swim to shore, and then pay for drinks with wet money. This is the birthplace of the legendary Painkiller cocktail (dark rum, cream of coconut, pineapple and orange juice, topped with Grenadian nutmeg) and you’d better watch out because it’s more potent here than anywhere else in the BVI. But if you start to feel a bit woozy, don’t worry. This place is so laid-back they won’t bat an eyelid if you take an extended siesta in one of their palm-shaded hammocks for the rest of the day.
Born from the smooth handcrafted dark rum then infused with a secret blend of oak, vanilla, coconut, pineapple, orange, nutmeg and other native spices. Soggy Dollar Island Spiced Rum, ginger ale and a lime wedge delivers a refreshing Caribbean experience, the perfect way to keep life simple and get on island time.
