Every time I see an image of Bikinis on the Beach, a beach bar located on Honeymoon Beach on the island of St. John in the US Virgin Islands, I want to be there. Luckily, I will be in less than a month. That’s the plan, at least. With a week in St. Thomas planned, I can’t imagine a day on St. John not working its way into our schedule. That’d be like going to Cancun and not visiting Isla Mujeres – an unforgivable sin in our book. What...

Isla Mujeres, Buho’s Beach Bar and the Spot/Swing Seat That Started It All

I’ve been writing articles about beach bars all over the world for over eight years on this blog. Even though I’ve visited countless beach bars during that time and before and imbibed in more rum punches, tings with a sting and margaritas that I care to recall, I can still remember it like it was yesterday when I realized I was going to be spending a lot of time bellied up to beach bars.

In our weekly beach bar virtual tour around the world, we often feature the same places, due to the support we receive from some of our favorite Instagram accounts. Without them, this weekly column probably wouldn’t be possible, at least not on a weekly basis.
