Bequia is the second-largest island in The Grenadines. Home to the incredible Friendship Bay, Princess Margaret Beach, Admiralty Bay and Lower Bay Beach you are never far from the glorious sites of the Caribbean waters, sandy beaches, palm trees and shining sun.
After a day in the water, strolling the beach, exploring the island or soaking in the sun, there is nothing quite like finding the perfect bar for the evening. Whether you want to relax with just the stars for company or party through the evening with friends, here are our recommendations for the top five bars in Bequia.
Bequia Beach Hotel Bar & Blue Tropic & Bar
Bequia Beach Bar is located right on the gorgeous Friendship Beach, offering sweeping views of the sea. During the season, it puts on fantastic live music and entertainment. On certain nights it is host to famous Caribbean beach parties, where you can slip off your shoes, and dance the night away, right on the sand.
Open seasonally, Blue Tropic & bar sits nestled just up the hill. The ideal location for a more relaxed or romantic evening. Laze on the chairs under the stars with just the sounds of the sea and garden to accompany your cocktail.
With locally inspired cocktails, you will taste passion fruit, pineapple, soursop and more, like you never have before. An intriguing, refreshing and downright delicious way to spend any evening.
Jack’s Bar belongs to the wonderful Bequia Beach Hotel, though it is on Princess Margaret Beach, in a different part of the island. Open from 11-11 this place will be just what you’re looking for, no matter the time of day.
With an extensive beer, wine and spirits menu, not much beats it except for their own signature cocktails. Playing homage to different parts of Bequia culture there is the Gibbon’s Rum Punch, named for Tony Gibbon. Rusty the dog, named after the trusty bar dog, who you can still see lazing at the bar or playing on the beach. And Union Island Iced Tea, containing six different types of alcohol – one for every beach!
Right on the waterfront, you can relax and watch the waves and boats during the day. Relax and enjoy romance with wine and the sunset. Or enjoy music and dancing in the evening.
Bequia’s one and only floating bar, located in the middle of picturesque Admiralty bay! You can rock up on your own boat or dinghy, or call and have a water taxi arranged to pick you up. Float, relax and sip on delicious and innovative cocktails like mango peppercorn gin & tonic and cucumber basil martinis.
Built on the grounds of an old sugar plantation, Firefly Bequia offers guests a secluded and intimate experience tucked amongst the hills and palms. Their original list of gin & martini speciality cocktails never disappoint! Try something different like the Praying Mantis, it combines tamarind infused vodka with fresh honeycomb and soda.
Mac’s Pizza and Kitchen
Right on the waterfront, Mac’s sits at the mecca of coastal activity. If you’re looking for a bar from which to enjoy the hustle and bustle of beachside nightlife, this is the place to be. Enjoy their scrumptious signature rum punch on the cosy outdoor patio and watch in awe as the sun sets on the horizon.
