Instagram Monday Weekly Worldwide Beach Bar Tour – Looking Back at St. Maarten/Martin and Anguilla

Tagged: , , , , ,

With our recent trip to St. Maarten/Martin and day trip to Anguilla wrapped up, the time to look back begins. There were highlights, along with a few lowlights, but there will be plenty of time to discuss those in the future. For now, we’ll take a look back through our Instagram posts where beach bars, as always, took center stage.

Mullett Bay Beach was not a complete surprise. What was surprising was how beautiful it was in person. If you’re staying on the island, it’s a must visit … along with a visit just north to the French side and Kali’s Beach Bar. Located on Friar’s Bay, Kali’s is a front runner for my new favorite beach bar on the island. Friar’s Bay Beach Café, on the other hand, is not.

We also visited Simpson Bay where despite Karakter disappointing, we discovered a surprise at the beach bar at El Zafiro. It’s another must visit on the island and I envision one of my future stays taking place at this beauty of a boutique.

Last but not least, there was the always dependable Sunshine Shack – still a favorite, still with Garvey large and in charge. If you visit Anguilla and don’t find your way to Garvey’s beach bar, don’t tell me. I’d be sorely disappointed in your life decisions.

I’ll be posting more about the trip as time allows. If you want to see what I’ve posted already, you can search for the hashtags “bbbsxm” and “bbbaxa” on this blog and all of the associated social media sites. See ya online!

If you’d like your images to be featured on the blog, make sure you’re following @beachbarbums, use the #beachbarbums tag and/or tag us in your pics. 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!
