Beach Bar Pic of the Week – Rancho Tranquilo, Jiquilillo Beach, Nicaragua

Tagged: , , ,

When one of my fellow beach bar bums submitted the below picture of a beach bar in Nicaragua for consideration in our “Beach Bar Pic of the Week” column, I was pretty excited. The blog is so heavily focused on certain areas of the world that we don’t often have the opportunity to explore regions that are less visited by the majority of our readers. That’s why this image, submitted by Eric von Winckler, is...

Beach Bar Pic of the Week – Kali’s Bar, St. Martin

Tagged: , , , , , ,

Kali’s Bar, a St. Martin beach bar located about three quarters of a mile southwest of Grand Case, is often overlooked by visitors to the island. Situated on the picturesque Friar’s Bay, tourists and cruisers often drive right by the beach without notice, opting for the more popular and well known Grand Case. Those familiar with Friar’s Bay are just fine with that as the small beach (well under 1000 feet in length) can remain their...

Beach Bar Pic of the Week – Hank’s, Anguilla

Tagged: , , , ,

Head down to Shoal Bay East in Anguilla and its myriad beach bars and you wouldn’t be to blame if you missed Hank’s. Formerly Mac and Hank’s and currently referred to online as Hank’s, Hank’s Island Carousel, Hank’s Beach Bar, Hank’s Bar and Restaurant and various other iterations, Hank’s sits back a tad bit from the beach, tucked among various foliage that is creeping onto the beach. Maybe that adds to its appeal. It won’t be nearly...

Beach Bar Pic of the Week – Capt. Andy’s Oceanfront Tiki Bar and Grill, Nags Head, North Carolina

Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Capt. Andy’s Oceanfront Tiki Bar and Grill, located in the Outer Banks (OBX) of North Carolina at the head of the Nags Head fishing pier, sports the “tiki bar” nomenclature but could be just as comfortably described as a beach bar. With a covered bar area, an expanded outdoor deck for additional seating and sand everywhere (as is typically the case in the OBX), it’s a beach bar fan’s dream come true. With its positioning at the head...

Beach Bar Pic of the Week – The Right Side of Driftwood Boat Bar, St. Maarten

Tagged: , , , , , , ,

If it wasn’t for all the car traffic zooming by, Driftwood Boat Bar, a beach bar located on Maho Beach in St. Maarten, might be the clear cut winner in my declaration of the best beach bar on the Dutch side of the island. Located opposite the beach from its more well-known counterpart, Sunset Bar, Driftwood is where you can find six beers for $15 and pizza that some will claim is the best on the island. The beach bar’s location...
