It may seem like a list of 50 beach bars is a lot. But when we finished compiling this momentous list, we weren’t even breathing hard. That’s because the Caribbean is the beach bar capital of Planet Earth, and we could easily have placed another 100 beach bars on here. But these are our favorites, whether it’s because of the beach itself, the famous cocktail, the food, the service, or the personalities. The primary prerequisite? The bar has to be located on the beach itself — not just on the water, or across the road from the beach. There has to be sand! These are the Caribbean beach bars we’re raising a glass to. Here they are: the 50 best best Caribbean beach bars.
