The Best Beach Bars in the Caribbean

Step on a Moorings yacht and you’ll have near-instant access to some of the best beaches in destinations like the BVI, the Bahamas and more. Add a one-of-a-kind bar to the mix, and you’ve got all the ingredients for a fun-filled adventure ashore.

B-Line Beach Bar – BVI 

B-Line Beach Bar is the place to be if you want to get away from it all. Tucked away on the sandy shores of Little Jost Van Dyke, this locally owned watering hole offers mouthwatering eats, cool beer and cocktails to match. Their signature drink, the Passion Confusion is a delightful blend of coconut, orange, pineapple, and passion fruit juices, rums, and a rum-soaked pineapple to top it all. Pair it with a signature meal like fresh mahi tacos or barbecued ribs, and burn (some of) it off with a couple games of cornhole on the beach.


Sandy Island Restaurant – Anguilla 

Just a short sail from St. Martin, Anguilla’s Sandy Island offers one of the best views in the Caribbean. Shore up for sunset, find a spot on the powder-white sand and bask in a view you could virtually frame up and hang. Afterward, stop by the restaurant for an amazing array of fresh seafood and fruity cocktails made to order. From crispy grouper to grilled lobster and great drinks like High Tide and JoJo's Rum Punch—your palate is sure to be pleased at Sandy Island Restaurant.

Restaurant Le Karibuni – St. Martin

About a half-mile east of north St. Martin sits Pinel Island, a beach-bustling paradise that’s home to the widely-acclaimed Restaurant Le Karibuni. Sink your toes in the soft beige sand as you sip some ice-cold champagne from the bar, a literal stone’s throw away from the shore. Or, refuel with a variety of locally inspired fare like grilled whole Snapper, tuna fish steak, fresh calamari and more. Le Karibuni offers beachfront recliners (upon reservation), bottle service and an adjacent hotel/activities facility.


Nipper’s – Bahamas


Nipper’s Beach Bar & Grill is a mecca for all things fun on Great Abaco Island in the Bahamas. Aside from all the great food and drinks (we’ll get to that in a second), this colorful wooden complex features two swimming pools, beach volleyball and live music, all adjacent to soft white sands and the third largest barrier reef in the world! When it comes to the food, Nipper’s is no joke. Stop by on Sunday for their weekly Pig Roast Party, which is just as tasty as it sounds; or cool off with a frozen cocktail like the “feared and famous” Nipper Juice.


Happy Island – The Grenadines


Right in the middle of Clifton Harbour and only accessible by boat, this man-made island was practically built for partying in paradise. The owner, Janti, built this entire island from conch shells with power derived from the wind and the sun. Tie up, hang out and kick back as you sip a fruity rum punch and feel the rhythm of the reggae emanating in the distance. Pull up shore-side for a spectacular view of the water, and the occasional dolphin, or kiteboarder, flying high above it.
