Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands
At only 3 square miles, it’s easy to walk around this petite island, but remember to wear the right shoes! Although Kenney Chesney filmed his video for “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems,” on this island, proper footwear is necessary for navigating...

British Virgin Islands
There’s no dock at the Soggy Dollar Bar, so sailors have to swim to shore to spend their “soggy dollars” on the strong drinks mixed there. The bar is the birthplace of the “Painkiller,” a cocktail made with Pusser’s rum, pineapple juice, cream of...

Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands
Caribbean lobsters don’t have pinchers or claws, and it seems like the best ones flock to the shores surrounding Sidney’s Peace and Love. This place has become popular over the years, so it’s a good idea to call ahead to reserve a lobster before...

Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands
Jost Van Dyke has some of the best beach bars in the Caribbean, and the best ones are located on the stretch along Great Harbour and White Bay. Many are “pour your own” style, so take it easy on the Painkillers as you walk from one bar to the...

Stevens Pasture, Spanish Town, British Virgin Islands
AFAR asked me what my favorite local hangout is and it's this spot. CocoMaya, not even a year old, is the new restaurant on island. With a Latin Asian fusion menu you can get things like Duck Nachos, Pad Thai (it's seriously out of this world),...

On one of the highest peaks in Virgin Gorda, overlooking the North Sound, you'll find Hog Heaven, a bare-bones scenic lunch spot famous for its pulled pork sandwiches, conch chowder and fried plantains. The dramatic view is the real draw here, but...

Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Set inside a 17th century sugar mill, this open-air restaurant is lit by candlelight and is perfect for a romantic dinner on Tortola. The restaurant is famous for their lobster bisque and lobster Thermidor, but make sure to save room for their...

Conch shells line the beach at this amazing local bar, where the lobster is caught fresh and even the serving is larger than what you’d get for a whole lobster at most restaurants.

Devils Bay, British Virgin Islands
Devil's Bay in Virgin Gorda is, in my opinion, the best beach of the Caribbean. It is secluded ( I was literally alone for more than half the time). The sea is gorgeous, the sand is perfect, and is it truly a magical experience. If you are looking...

Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands
Although the food and drinks are great at Mermaid's Dockside Bar & Grill, part of the overall experience is to sit back and watch the giant tarpon swim beneath the dock. Looking to see the tarpon at their finest? Go at sunset when they crowd the...
