Located about dead center of White Bay on Jost Van Dyke is the world famous Soggy Dollar Bar. It’s called the Soggy Dollar because most people arrive by boat, and there’s no dock, so you’re swimming in. Don’t forget to load your pockets with some cash to try the world’s best conch fritters, chicken roti, jerk chicken or a flying fish sandwich….and wash it all down with a Painkiller, rumored to have been created here at Soggy Dollar. Some say that its illegal NOT to try the BVI’s most famous drink….but they ain’t been heard from since, so you decide! The bartenders will hang your “soggy dollars” on a clothesline behind the bar to dry before burying them in the till. This is a great place to try the Ring Game, made famous hundreds of years ago by pirates, passing the time on ships as they traveled from pillage to pillage. There’s always music, sometimes live, and usually a volleyball game on the sand. There are tables and chairs in the sand, and hammocks strung from tree to tree. Pull a chair up to the shore and let the water wash over your feet as you sip a cool cocktail. It’s a lively place to meet some great people, and a great place for the kids–yes, it’s a bar, but nothing like the ones at home! This is a beach party, and everyone is welcome!
