On any other typical Monday, our Instagram Monday posts are mostly filled with images from beach bars in the Caribbean with a smattering of images from Florida and other destinations. This week’s post, however, offers us a glimpse at a couple destinations we normally don’t have the opportunity to feature.
Instagram user @11mari gives us a masterclass on how to take selfies at a beach bar (seriously, the lighting and bokeh in here image are on point). Meanwhile, across the country in New Jersey, they’re getting ready for another summer season as evidenced by the still-under-construction The Club at Diamond Beach. Plus, it’s always a good day when favorite Instagrammer @beachesbarsandbungalows shares a post from Florida.
Oh yeah, did I also mention that six bottles of my favorite white rum showed up at Beach Bar Bums HQ? It’s going to be a good summer!
If you’d like your images to be featured on the blog, make sure you’re following @beachbarbums, use the #beachbarbums tag and I’ll try and get you in. If you have a travel blog or personal website, I also try and post links to those whenever possible. I occasionally give away free stuff to some of my favorites so that’s pretty cool, I guess. Plus, the blog gets a BUNCH of views per day and the article is shared to all of my social media sites – you’ll never find a more dedicated group of beach bar lovers anywhere! If you’d like me to write an article featuring just your photos, send me an email at info at beach bar bums dot com and we’ll talk it over.
Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram! It’s the most fun you’ll have staring at your phone. Cheers!

Goombay's Island Grill: not just outstanding food at casual-eatery prices, but now featuring live music! (Also, yes, we've posted Goombays before b/c it ✔s all our beach bar boxes, but ALSO because it's pink! And #ihavethisthingwithpink . And get this: its other wall is TURQUOISE and #ireallyhavethisthingwithpinkandturquoise.) The new owners have brought this perfect A1A location up to speed for that chill island vibe with relaxing tropical atmosphere and a pet-friendly palm tree lined outdoor patio. VIBE: Come as you are, local's hangout but tourists are welcome too. ARRIVE: By car (plenty of parking) or by foot directly from the beach just across the street. SIT: Inside or out. Outside feels more spacious. SIP: Happy Hour is M-F, 2-6. Beer & wine only. NOSH: With their CaribeCajunMexiAsian cuisine, there is something for everyone. LISTEN: Live music Tues Wed Sat Sun 6-9 pm. #WHPcolorpop
