Took a charter to the BVI with Iggy. Hopped off the boat and to a beach side table. Fantastic Bushwacker! Great staff, great location. Iconic beach bar!

You haven't visited St.John until you have had refreshments and food at the Beach Bar. Entertainment is watching the boats come in, people coming to the dinghy dock and the locals and visitors all mixing together. The drinks are awesome and the food is very very good!

This bar is right by the harbor and is by far one of the most fun, beautiful places I've been. The bartenders are friendly and fast every time. The drinks are great and the view is magnificent. The food is always good.

My friends and I decided to walk to the beach bar one night on a whim. There were around 15 of us, and when we arrived, the bar staff was super accommodating. We were hungry of course, and the kitchen was closing in 15 minutes. They happily took our orders, and the food was very good. We had the nachos... More

We enjoyed happy hour at the beach bar, you get a nice view of Cruz Bay as the sun goes down. Bushwackers, painkillers and beer were all offered at great prices. My husband enjoyed a generous portion of mahi fish and chips. This was also a great place to meet local people and find out more about the island life.... More

Very close to everything and a wonderful spot to hit after a day of diving. Drinks were great! My salad was very good as was the fish and chips. Location, location, location. They've got it all!

Located off Cruz Bay and perhaps one hundred steps from the ferry, it offers killer drinks and simple food in a busy, friendly atmosphere.

My wife and I took a day trip to St. Johns to check out their beaches along with another couple who we were vacationing with. We got off the car ferry, parked near the center of town, and headed over to The Beach Bar in Franklin Powell Park. It was the most colorful bar right in the middle of town... More

The location simply can't be beat. From your perch, you watch the boats come in, some go out, and enjoy something cool to drink. You will not go wrong with the burger, it is great.
