Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

In what will come as no surprise to any of the almost 300 residents of Jost Van Dyke and the countless others who have strolled ashore to his beach bar on Great Harbour, Foxy Callwood, the proprietor and do-everything at Foxy’s Tamarind Bar, is charming. At least that’s how Jake Lamb described him in his article for Yachting Magazine. Foxy’s beach bar and the rest of Jost Van Dyke get an in-depth review as well, as Mr. Lamb not only...

British Virgin Islands Beach Bars – Gertrude’s Beach Bar, Jost Van Dyke

Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

Gertrude’s Beach Bar and Boutique on Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands doesn’t get the attention some of her better known JVD brethren get, such as Ivan’s, Foxy’s and the Soggy Dollar, but make no mistake, the grand dame of Jost Van Dyke has assumed her rightful spot as “queen of the beach bars” (along with Jewel, of course) on this British isle and can stand sandy toe to sandy toe with any of her better known brothers.

Beach Bar Playlist – Tuesday Tunes

Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

Part of the magic and allure of beach bars is the music. Many times, that music is simply the constant drone of a dozen different conversations all occurring at the same time. Sometimes, once the conversations have ended for the night, nature’s symphony comes forth and the gently lapping waves, chirping birds and rustling palms take center stage. Occasionally, as recounted by one of the fans of my Facebook page, it is an impromptu jam...
