The Famous Soggy Dollar


After hiking the uninhibited  hermit crab infested trail on Sandy Cay Island, we made our way to Jost Van Dyke to hangout at the famous Soggy Dollar Bar.  This is where the famous Pain Killer drink originated from the 70’s. It is now a staple drink in all the Caribbean!

I have to say out of all the beaches we explored, this one is my favorite! The water is incredibly blue, calm and soft white sandy beach!

They were not kidding about “Soggy Dollar,” lol! We all jumped in treading water all the way to the beach! Ron was a doll and kept my coverup dry!

Swimming to shore we saw a few stingray. I didn’t get to go up to any but since the water was so clear you can see them everywhere!imgI laid in the sand while they enjoyed the chairs sipping some famous painkillers! Which do you prefer?!

imgI watched tons of brown bobbies dive into the water. I’ve never seen anything like it! You can see one to the right shooting straight into the water! I am not 100% sure on the breed of the bird but heres a list here to check outimgThey are not afraid to dive in right next to you either. I was entertained by these guys for ever!imgWe all enjoyed some drinks and conk fritters! imgSoggy Dollar ceiling is filled with t-shirts and badges from all over the country. My friend Erica gave them her Spartan t-shirt to hang so if you see it let me know! imgWe worked our way down the beach and played some corn hole! Gosh, I could never get tired of that view!img

This day was perfect since we got to snorkel, take a hike and discover 100’s of hermit crabs, relax on the most beautiful beach with some great friends… life can’t get much better then that!

I highly recommend spending at least a day here! If you want to see whats going on right this second at Soggy Dollar CLICK HERE to watch the LIVE WEB CAM!

      It was a lot of fun! I actually came across it on Pinterest before I even knew I was going to go! My all time favorite day with the Virgin Gorda Baths, though any island in the BVI is magical in its own way!
