British Virgin Islands - Part 5 - Jost Van Dyke and the Painkiller

Our final stop for the day was our longest...

It may be tiny, but the British Virgin Isle of JOST VAN DYKE is among the more famous beach bum stops...

No easy docking, everyone just parks their boats as close to the beach as you can get and makes a swim for it (actually, we were walking, as the water is about chest high).

The most famous of teh bars that line the very LONG beach is the "Soggy Dollar" bar.  Name makes sense, since everyone has to get wet to get there, most of the drinks are paid for with wet money.

Among the most beautiful beaches on the islands, the sand is perfect white.  No rocks, great beach.

Wonder how I would look in one of these two suits... not everyone can pull it off and look good.

Generally, the more pasty white you are, the longer shorts you should wear... just a rule of thumb.  And never write words on your ass.

The star drink is the Painkiller... mixture of rum, orange and pineapple juices, cream of coconut and nutmeg...

The third one is the best one.

A great place to end our day!


  1. Drinking rum on the beach! My favorite pastime. :)
