A potential beach bar just went up for sale on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands and for the small sum of $25,000, it could be yours. The beach bar is the former Guajira Grill and Bar, which looks like it may have closed its doors in late 2011 according to its Facebook page. Details from the Craigslist posting (http://virgin.craigslist.org/bfs/4820110431.html) were as follows but I believe it has sold since the listing is no longer active.

There isn’t a lot to the beach bar and you would still need to find a location and get the permits but once that falls into place, the possibilities are endless. You wouldn’t even need a deck around it – just plop it down on the beach and let the sand be your floor. Beach bars have started with a lot less than this structure offers. And hey, if all else fails, it can still function as a house.
