On an island chain known for its happening beach bars, this may be the most famous beach bar in the B.V.I. Sixth-generation Jost Van Dyke native Philicianno “Foxy” Callwood opened the place in the late 1960s and is a big part of the draw. Foxy plays the guitar and is deeply invested in preserving the environment and culture of his native Jost. In November 2013, several years after the Jost Van Dyke Preservation Society initiated the building of a traditional wooden “Tortola” boat behind Foxy’s bar (with the help of the island children), the 32-foot Endeavor II was launched in Great Harbour to much fanfare among locals and visitors alike.

Most nights feature rock [’]n’ roll, reggae, or soca. The food and drink aren’t bad, either—order up Foxy’s Painkiller punch along with fish sandwiches, rotis, and burgers, lobster, ssteamed shrimp, or the catch of the day. Look for beach barbecues on the weekends and ongoing events all year-round, including Foxy’s Old Year’s Night celebration around New Year’s.
