One of the defining characteristics of a great Caribbean Bars is finding the perfect spot for a tantalising island concoction – and our destinations have no shortage of those. Here is a look at 5 of the bars rated highest by visitors from all around the world.
1. Chevy’s Calypso Bar (Nevis)
Few venues in Nevis have the kind of following enjoyed by Chevy’s. In fact, you’ll scarce find someone who has visited Nevis and not stopped here at least once. Chevy, the owner, is always visible and provides a warm island welcome for his guests.
While you’re here, try some of Chevy’s signature drinks. The locals recommend the Stinger and the Pink Panty. They also have what many agree to be the best wings on the island. On Sundays, they also feature some of the best in local Caribbean music for your dancing pleasure.
2. Le Ti (St. Barths)
St. Barths is the ideal destination for night owls. Things really start to heat up here around midnight and when the witching hour arrives, there is one venue that tops all the rest according to numerous visitors to the island: Le Ti St. Barth.
Get here around 10:00 PM for a late night dinner. Their steaks are second to none on the island. Follow it up with a bottle of your favourite champagne and watch as the action heats up around you.
3. Basil’s Bar (Mustique) Caribbean Bars
Another venue whose appeal begins with its stunning views is Mustique’s own Basil’s Bar. It is another rather unassuming building that has quite a lot more going on inside. This is one place that the locals recommend for both great drinks and simple island faire. Order up a bowl of their famous Callaloo Soup and chase it with one of Basil’s signature rum punches. If Basil is there when you visit it will be an even more memorable experience!
4. Elvis’ Beach Bar (Anguilla)
Elvis has gained a reputation over the years as being King of the Long Pour and he is very visible most of the time. He epitomises the easy-going atmosphere that makes Anguilla such an attractive destination in the first place. Elvis’ quirky boat-shaped bar is right on the beach so sit back, relax and feel the warm sand between your toes as you sip on one of those strong signature cocktails.
5. Hog Heaven (Virgin Gorda)
If a stunning view is what you look for in an island bar, you will want to experience Hog Heaven on your trip to Virgin Gorda. You can see the entire North Sound from here as well as Leverick Bay, Necker Island, Saba Rock Resort and much more.
This is a small venue whose looks can be deceiving. Blondie, the owner, whips up a concoction called the Blondie Special that has to be experienced to be believed. Visitors also recommend the Rum Punch as the perfect compliment to a sultry island afternoon.
