The 50 Best Caribbean Beach Bars

June 10, 2015 | 6:56 pm 

It may seem like a list of 50 beach bars is a lot. 

But when we finished compiling this momentous list, we weren’t even breathing hard. 

That’s because the Caribbean is the beach bar capital of Planet Earth, and we could easily have placed another 100 beach bars on here. 

But these are our favorites, whether it’s because of the beach itself, the famous cocktail, the food, the service, or the personalities. 

The primary prerequisite? The bar has to be located on the beach itself — not just on the water, or across the road from the beach. There has to be sand! 

Our Island

These are the Caribbean beach bars we’re raising a glass to. 

Here they are: the 50 best Caribbean beach bars.


The Soggy Dollar Bar — Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands

This isn’t just a beach bar. It’s a legend. It’s a place that attracts pilgrims from all over the world to taste its famous Painkiller; it’s set on a spectacular beach in Jost Van Dyke; has warm, friendly service; and makes every guest feel like a proud adventurer. It’s the best beach bar in the Caribbean.

Le Petibonum — Martinique

Guy Ferdinand’s beach bar in Le Carbet is a work of art; everything is done with the eye of an aficionado, from the selection of rums to the menu, which offers the best and most imaginative food of any beach bar in the region.

Sunshines Beach Lounge — Nevis

This bar is about two things: the eponymous host, Sunshine, a famous figure in St Kitts and Nevis, and his secret-recipe Killer Bee, a sweet rum cocktail that packs a serious punch.

# 04:


Ti’ Robinson — Guadeloupe

This is the Caribbean’s great secret beach bar — not even those in the know know about it. Pay a fisherman a few Euro and he’ll take you to this tiny islet off the coast of Grand-Terre, Guadeloupe, home to Ti’ Punches and fresh grilled lobster.

Juanillo Beach, Food & Drinks — Dominican Republic

Tucked away in the tony Cap Cana enclave of Punta Cana, this is a laid-back, bohemian beach bar with a surfer’s soul. And the snow-white Playa Juanillo doesn’t hurt its case.

Sunset Bar and Grill — St Maarten

It’s one of the most famous bars in the Caribbean: Sunset, where thousands upon thousands enjoy their beach cocktails and watch the big jets land right over the heads at SXM Airport.

Cow Wreck Beach Bar — Anegada, British Virgin Islands

Caribbean beaches don’t get much better than Cow Wreck Beach on the island of Anegada. Sit back on one of the bar’s colorful chairs, grab a Wreck Punch and enjoy the show.

Dune Preserve — Anguilla

Music star Bankie Banxx, Anguilla’s Minister of Cool, is the man behind this beach bar-music complex that’s almost beyond classification. But it’s also a destination in its own right.

# 09:


Garvey’s Sunshine Shack — Anguilla

It’s no surprise that one of the Caribbean’s best beach destinations should have quite a few entries on this list. Garvey’s is a terrific little beach shack on a magnificent stretch of Rendezvous Beach.

# 10:


Foxy’s Tamarind Bar — Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands

It’s home to the most famous New Year’s Eve party in the Caribbean, but this legendary bar on Jost Van Dyke is a classic beach bar the other 364 rkys of the year, too.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 

The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST

Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.

However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.

Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
