Four Top Caribbean Beach Bars

Four Top Caribbean Beach Bars

Lat year I took a Caribbean crewed yacht charter holiday, and had the time of my life. Here I list my four favourite bars of the many we visited during our fortnight in the Caribbean.

Basils Bar – Mustique

Famed for being the playground for the rich and famous who own large villas on Mustique, Mick Jagger amongst others would frequently drop by for an impromptu jam.  Sadly since Basil sold his ‘tell all story’ in the form of a book a few years ago, the rock stars tend to stay away these days.  It’s still a great spot to visit and look out over the yachts at anchor whilst sipping something cold; checkout the hand carvings in the teak roof .

Favorite tipple – Mojito

Roger’s Barefoot Beach Bar – Hog Island Grenada

This is a Sunday institution in Grenada; all the locals visit Roger’s Bar, which is nothing more than a shack on a tiny island.  Several years ago the Four Seasons Hotel purchased the island where Roger’s Barefoot Beach Bar is located.  Thankfully due to both the global recession, and also the finding of a rare Grenadian Dove, all development on this totally natural little island stopped.  So it’s just Roger’s.  A word of warning, the price of soda’s are more expensive than Rum so you’d better watch out!

Favorite tipple – Rum & Ting (local grapefruit soda)

Tiki Hut – Prickly Pear Beach Anguilla

This little thatched roofed bar is located within Anguilla’s marine park so you can only access it by boat.  Allan the bar tender spent most of his time growing up in London whilst his mum Agatha established the bar on this island.  Now Allan will blow your socks off when he says ‘can l get you a drink guv’ in his cockney slang.

Favorite tipple – frozen Pina Colada

Do Brazil – Shell Beach St Barths

The only beach on St Barths that is covered with tiny shells as well as beautiful white sand.  This laid back chic bar also has a restaurant upstairs.  It’s a great place to hang out & be entertained by one of the many local musicians.

Favorite tipple – Vanilla flavored Rum Shot
