10 Great Bars You May Not Have Heard of in the BVI

The British Virgin Islands are a sailors paradise and well, face it, sailors are a thirsty bunch. The main islands in the BVI chain are dotted with great bars, some that have become incredibly well known, such as the Soggy Dollar Bar, Bomba Shack, Foxy’s and Willie T’s, but there are dozens of bars that are perhaps not on everyone’s radar, but definitely worth a visit. We don’t know about you, but we’ve made it our mission to check out as many bars in the BVI as possible and here are 10 great bars you may not have heard of in the BVI, but are probably worth putting on your “list”!


Cooper Island Rum Bar, Cooper Island

With over 100 rums to choose from, the Cooper Island Rum Bar boasts the largest selection of rum in the Virgin Island. Order a sampler board and enjoy the variety while learning the origin and history of each rum.

Hog Heaven, Virgin Gorda
Far from one of the beautiful Virgin Gorda beaches, but with a view that will take your breath away, Hog Heaven sits high on a hill over looking the magnificent North Sound. The BBQ is terrific and you should wash it down with a Blondie Special (named after the owner) or a tasty Rum Punch.


CocoMaya, Virgin Gorda
CocoMaya, a newer restaurant/bar on Virgin Gorda is not far from Spanish Town. On a pretty beach with fantastic sunset views, enjoy your favorite cocktail on a comfortable lounge bed in the glow of a fire pit in the sand. (BTW – the sushi is excellent as well!)


The Sandbox Bar & Grill, Prickly Pear Island
Prickly Pear Island, located close to Saba Rock in the North Sound of Virgin Gorda, is a smaller island that was declared a BVI National Park in 1988 – so no additional development will be permitted.  Sandbox Bar & Grill sits on pretty Vixen Beach, on the islands southwestern point. The small bar is nothing fancy, but it’s good place to enjoy a beer or a Rum Punch while enjoying the sun and activity in North Sound. If you’re feeling energetic, take the hiking path over the hill to explore the salt ponds and several other pretty beaches.

B-Line Beach Bar, Little Jost Van Dyke
If you’re heading to the east end of Jost Van Dyke (Bubbly Pool, Foxy’s Taboo) from Sandy Cay or Sandy Spit, you may catch a glimpse of a secluded little bar on Little Jost called, the B-Line Beach Bar. You won’t find large crowds and loud music here, but you’ll find a place to unwind and relax amidst the palms. Be sure to try their signature drink, the Passion Confusion.


Hendo’s Hideout, Jost Van Dyke
The new bar on the block, this really pretty bar/restaurant has a prime location right next to the Soggy Dollar. Sip on a Delirious Donkey while gazing out at spectacular White Bay, or lounge in the sun in one of their oversized hammocks.


Pirates Bight, Norman Island
If you’ve been to the Willie T, chances are you’ve at least seen Pirates Bight sitting on the pretty beach at Norman Island. The original Pirate’s Bight burned to the ground in a fire in 2013, but has been re-built and is nicer than ever. Order a delicious Day at the Beach (cocktail) and a Chicken Roti. Prices aren’t cheap, but the taste is amazing!

Anegada Reef Hotel, Anegada
You may be familiar with Cow Weck Beach Bar & Grill and the Big Bamboo at Loblolly, but be sure to stop at the bar on the beach at Anegada Reef Hotel in Setting Point, Anegada. Try a Rum Smoothie with your toes in the sand and a spectacular sunset at one of the prettiest islands in the Caribbean.


Harris’ Place, Jost Van Dyke
Probably known more as a restaurant than a bar, we had to add Harris’ Place to the list as we enjoyed one of the best Bushwacker’s we’ve had, crafted by the owner herself, Cynthia Harris. Sit at the edge of the water and enjoy a beverage and conversation with other sailors and if you’re there long enough, you might as well stay to enjoy a succulent lobster dinner in season.


Jumbie’s, Virgin Gorda
Belly up to the bar to enjoy a $4 Rum Punch at Happy Hour or try to catch a Michael Beans Pirate Show (in season). Fun atmosphere, good drinks and, if you’re hungry, some delicious food served at the water’s edge.

Dinner at The Longboard, Cruz Bay, St John


The Longboard, a Caribbean-inspired coastal cantina located in Cruz Bay opened its doors in May of 2015, but we had yet to experience it – that is, until our trip to St. John last month.

The Longboard, St. John - copyright Rum TherapyPassion Pitted
The Longboard is easy to find – from the ferry dock, walk straight past Strand Street in Cruz Bay to the next intersection (King Street), turn left and The Longboard is on the right.

The Longboard, St. John - copyright Rum Therapy
Focusing on fresh, local and flown-in ingredients, The Longboard continues to innovate their food concept and bring a new approach to dining on St. John with a healthy menu inspired by coastal flavors around the world. We loved the extensive fish and seafood offerings on their new menu including local fresh catches such as rainbow runner, wahoo, conch and octopus as well as Pacific fish such as Hawaiian Opah (Moon Fish) and Hawaiian Ahi.  Non-seafood entrees include Island Wings (spicy mango glazed wings) and Grilled Portabella, Chimichuri Marinated and Grilled Skirt Steak or Spicy Jerk Braised Pork Tacos & Bowls. Delicious new bar offerings and house-shaped cocktails include a Passion Fruit Frosé.

 After being seated on the patio, we ordered a couple of rum drinks – a Rum Julep,

The Longboard, St. John - copyright Rum TherapyRum Julep
and a new offering called Stoked, a tropical concoction of aged rhum, Plantation Overproof Rum, housemade orgeat, blackstrap bitters, housemade pineapple shrub and lime juice – impressively lit afire at our table!

The Longboard, St John - copyright Rum TherapyStoked
Our appetizer consisted of a trio of ceviche’s served with yucca chips and tostones. We then sat back in our chairs enjoying the food, drink, view and the warm St. John air from The Longboards open aired patio.

Dinner at The Longboard, Cruz Bay, St JohnMixto (trio of ceviche’s)
After polishing off our appetizer, we moved on to our entrées, ordering the Longboard Sliders made with a coconut crusted fresh catch-of-the-day,

The Longboard Sliders

and an Ahi Tuna Bowl.


Each dish had its own special Caribbean flair and incorporated local spices, locally-caught seafood and locally-sourced herbs, greens and fruits. Mmmm – delicious!

Our only regret? After our satisfying dinner, we had no room to sample one of their famous Frozen Painkillers. Can you imagine how that would taste after spending a day on one of St. John’ beautiful beaches?


Find out more about The Longboard by visiting their website, and following them on Facebook and Instagram.

Have you enjoyed dinner (or at least a Frozen Painkiller) at The Longboard yet? If so, tell us about it!

A special thanks to The Longboard and Rebecca for arranging our delicious dinner!

Mudjin Bar & Grill, Middle Caicos


Many years ago while staying on North Caicos, we drove over the causeway connecting North to Middle Caicos to explore. Our first Middle Caicos stop? The stunning Mudjin Harbour.

Mudjin Harbour - copyright Rum Therapy
A few months ago we returned to Turks & Caicos and this time we stayed on Providenciales. Hearing that several beach bars that had been built on North Caicos (Barracuda Beach Bar) and Middle Caicos (Mudjin Bar & Grill) since our last visit, we decided to take the ferry over again to explore.

Although Middle Caicos takes a bit of planning and time to get to, Mudjin Harbour was just as beautiful as the time before and we enjoyed the addition of Mudjin Bar & Grill.

Mudjin-2-(600)-O
It’s situated in the Blue Horizon Resort with a fabulous view of Mudjin Harbour beach and Dragon Cay, a rock formation just offshore that resembles a dragon.

Mudjin-6-(600)-O
Mudjin-7-(600)-O
Mudjin-8-(600)-O
We enjoyed a rum punch on the deck while enjoying the warm breeze and the view before heading down for some time on the beach.

Mudjin-5-(600)-O
FYI – we were told by the bartender that the Blue Horizon Resort is for sale and includes the Mudjin Bar & Grill. Hmmm. More details here.

Da Conch Shack & RumBar, Providenciales


For a small island with not even one stop light, Providenciales in the Turks & sure has a large number of simply amazing beaches (see The Stunning Beaches of Providenciales), and a number of really fun beach bars too.

da Conch Shack, Providenciales, Turks & Caicos - copyright Rum Therapy
One of the better known, da Conch Shack & RumBar, is located in the Blue Hills area on the northern coast of Provo (next door to Kalooki’s).

Conch-Shack-6-(600)-O
da Conch Shack & RumBar provides deliciously fresh seafood and a wide variety of conch dishes – cracked conch, conch salad, conch fritters, conch creole, and curried conch.

And if all that delicious conch & seafood weren’t enough, the RumBar serves up an excellent Rum Punch called Jan’s Rum Punch, served by the glass or pitcher.

O’Brien, the bartender at the RumBar was great to talk “rum” with and delighted in sharing his favorite rum selections.

The Stunning Beaches of Providenciales, Turks & Caicos

If you ask anyone that has visited the island of Providenciales in beautiful Turks & Caicos what they think of the beaches, you’ll probably get an enthusiastic thumbs up. From the very well known Grace Bay Beach which is frequently included on lists of “Top Beaches”, to some of the lesser known and less visited beaches, the stunning beaches of Providenciales are sure to leave an impression on you.

Leeward Beach, copyright Rum Therapy

Unfortunately one week was just not enough time to fully explore every beach on the island (after all, we had to reserve some time to check out the impressive list of great bars & beach bars on island too!), so we will just give the lowdown on what Provo beaches we’ve gotten to see so far. Be sure to leave a comment below with any others that you’ve enjoyed.

Check out our Turks & Caicos Island Map to find the locations of these beaches.

Grace-Bay Beach - copyright Rum Therapy

Grace Bay Beach
Frequently listed as one of the Top Beaches in the world, this very long stretch of stunning white sand and turquoise blue water is a beach lover’s paradise. Many of the major resorts and accommodations in Provo are found along this stretch  of beach.

Grace-Bay Beach - copyright Rum Therapy
The Bight Beach
Although it seems just like a continuation of Grace Bay Beach, The Bight Beach is west of Grace Bay along the same stretch of sand. The Bight Beach is best known for it’s snorkeling with a good amount of lush sea grass just off the shore.

Somewhere-Beach-Bar - copyright Rum Therapy
A view of The Bight Beach from Somewhere Café & Lounge

Leeward Beach
Heading east from Grace Bay you will find another long and beautiful expanse of white sand beach called the Leeward Beach. We read that from Leeward Beach it is possible to walk 7 miles of beach passing Grace Bay and The Bight Beach and ending at Turtle Cove. We originally thought that Pelican Beach was a separate beach on the northeast side, but found it included in Leeward Beach in some maps.

Sapodilla Bay
Heading down to the south part of Provo, Sapodilla Bay lies on the Caicos Banks side of the island adjacent from Chalk Sound. With blue, shallow, calm, clear water, it’s a pretty place to pull up a beach towel and enjoy a quiet afternoon in the sun.

Taylor Bay
Not far from Sapodilla Bay is another pretty, shallow bay called Taylor Bay. Taylor Bay is very shallow for yards out into the band has a long expanse of white sand that is perfect for walking. Parking is very limited next to the path that opens up to the bay.

Bugaloo’s Conch Crawl, Providenciales

If you like conch, live music, good drinks and a great atmosphere, you should probably put Bugaloo’s Conch Crawl on your “list”.

Bugaloos Conch  Crawl Drinks - copyright Rum Therapy
Located in Five Cays on the T&C island of Providenciales, this laid-back beach bar serves up fresh fish dishes (they’re located next to Sunny’s Fish Plant, so very fresh) for lunch and dinner along with tasty drinks, live music and a great view.

Bugaloos-Conch Crawl - copyright Rum Therapy
There is a front door and inside seating,

but when we pulled in to park, we were immediately drawn to the great looking deck and outside seating.

Although there was some great seating on the deck under the palms, we chose a small table in the sand, about as close as we could get to the shallow, blue water.

The live music at lunch was mellow and relaxing – perfect for that time of day, but were told the music on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights is lively and perfect for partying.

We ordered Red Snapper and Coconut Cracked Conch and thought both dishes were tasty.

Then we spent some time walking in the shallow, watching people jet skiing in the bay and enjoying a beverage at one of the cool “boat” tables.

Barracuda Beach Bar, North Caicos

Always following the feed of everything Turks & Caicos, we’d run across some photos recently of a bar on North Caicos that had been built since our last visit. We were familiar with the area and the gorgeous beach that it sits on and knew we needed to stop by to check it out.

Barracuda-Beach Bar copyright Rum Therapy

Barracuda Beach Bar is the name of the establishment built behind the Pelican Beach Hotel in the small town of Whitby.

Barracuda-Beach Bar copyright Rum Therapy
Pelican Beach Hotel is far enough from the ferry building on North Caicos that you will need to either rent a car, get a taxi or take a tour that will get you there, but if you like quiet, scenic places to hang out and enjoy a rum punch or two, you might really enjoy spending some time at the Barracuda.

Barracuda serves food as well, but we were satisfied sipping on a rum punch and just taking it all in…
