Foxy’s Bar in Jost Van Dyke is no doubt the most famous beach bar in all of the British Virgin Islands. A haven for yachties from all around the world, it’s built entirely around seventh-generation Jost Van Dyke native Philicianno “Foxy” Callwood.
In the late 1960’s, Foxy erected a temporary bar that would eventually become the household name for tourists looking for a relaxing time in the BVIs. A big part of the draw is Foxy himself, a highly entertaining character with incredible skills as a songwriter and an entertainer. He whips up an impromptu calypso — almost in perfect Jamaican tradition — for the enjoyment of his guests. But this is not an ordinary guitar-slinging islander we’re talking about here. Foxy is actually “Sir Foxy Callwood.” In 2009, He was knighted by Her Royal Majesty, the Queen of England, for his contributions for tourism and the preservation of the environment of his native island.
Foxy’s is also known for wild parties. On Fridays and Saturdays, Foxy and crew put on a Caribbean Bar-be-que like no other with their “Grillzebo.” Their specialty Rum drink menu is must-try. Celebrate island style with any of their sweet libations like the Vanilla Killa, Sly Fox, Dread Fox, or one of their distinct microbrews on tap. There’s usually live music, and you can lie on one of the hammocks and take in the view of Great Harbour, or socialize over lunch with tourists from every corner of the world.
If you visit the British Virgin Islands, don’t miss a chance to spend some quality time at Foxy’s Bar.
