Discovering a Deserted Beach Bar in the US Virgin Islands

Tagged: , , , ,

One of our favorite videographers on YouTube, Captain Birch, recently released a video of an abandoned/deserted beach bar on Water Island in the US Virgin Islands. For those of you who don’t know, Water Island is the oft forgotten fourth island in the USVI. Located just across the West Gregerie Channel off the southern coast of St. Thomas (or about 1.5 miles southeast of the airport terminal), Water Island is the fourth largest...

It’s only 22 seconds long but for those of you itching for an update on the US Virgin Islands’ Beach Bar on Cruz Bay in St. John, it’s a welcome sight. Still not fully operational or back to its normal hours, the beach bar’s customers don’t seem to mind, soaking up whatever time they can. The beachfront structure, seemingly built to be temporary, appears to be serving its purpose, if one can judge based...

St. John’s Trunk Bay Beach Bar Reopens

Tagged: , , , , ,

One of the surprises on our last trip to St. John in the US Virgin Islands was the beach bar at Trunk Bay. For some reason, it had never come up in my research on the area so I hadn’t planned on visiting it. I happened to spot it on the way out of the beach and immediately regretted not finding it sooner. While the bar doesn’t actually sit on the beach, if it wants to call itself a beach bar, we’re going to let it....

News of St. John Announces Details on Reopening of The Beach Bar

Tagged: , , , , ,

It looks like the reopening of The Beach Bar, located on Cruz Bay in St. John, isn’t just big news for beach bar bums but for the island well. It’s big enough news, at least, to prompt News of St. John to post an article on a Friday evening (prime happy hour time) announcing that the Beach Bar had scheduled its reopening date. Granted, I would figure out a way to jolt myself out of a deep slumber if I was somehow informed mid-sleep...

High Tide Bar & Seafood Grill, a beach bar located steps away from the ferry dock in Cruz Bay on St. John in the US Virgin Islands, is one of a handful of beach bars that make this bay a popular choice for visitors and tourists alike. Music streams from the bars as this stretch of beach keeps its own beat, functioning not just as the island’s unofficial greeter but that of the pulse of the island’s nightlife. That’s why it’s nice...

Thanks for the Memories – The Beach Bar at the Island Beachcomber Hotel, St. Thomas

Tagged: , , , , , ,

I don’t know that the Island Beachcomber’s beach bar actually ever had a name. Located on Lindbergh Bay on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, the beach bar at this well-worn but respectable resort became one of our favorite spots on the island. About a 5-10 minute walk from the airport, it also served a function as the island’s unofficial greeter, a favorite place for locals to take their guests when they first arrived on the...
