One of the requirements for many of the classic beach bars I’ve visited in the Caribbean is a Sharpie. It’s not for labeling bottles, taking down orders or such. Rather, it’s to allow the patrons to sign their names, leave messages or something similar on the structure. A practice that most establishments label as “vandalism” is encouraged as some of our favorite beach bars. After all, who better to decorate a beach bar than its patrons? Walk up to a beach bar and see it emblazoned with markings and you’ll know you’ve found a dandy one.
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!
