We love visiting JVD sand ultimately end up at Soggy Dollar. The beach is beautiful and the painkillers are by far the best in the Caribbean! They have great bar food and the atmosphere is always fun and rowdy!

The Soggy Dollar was extremely crowded and loud, but a great place to people watch. The food was very good, if you don't mind the wait. The drinks were, too, but they were a little on the small side for the prices. An interesting experience!
