If you’ve been out with Aqua Blue Charters in the BVI, you know, we love White Bay, Jost Van Dyke. This beach is stunning white sand and turquoise water with a back drop of palm trees and beach bars. There is a reason it’s our most popular stop on our boat trips to the BVI, and it just got a little better.
Introducing: Hendo’s Hideout
Hendo’s Hideout is the last beach bar on the left of the beach (when you’re standing on White Bay facing the water). Which means, Hendo’s Hideout is perfectly positioned almost in the exact middle of White Bay.
Hendo’s stands out from the line up of beach bars due to the construction of the bar. Simply put, it’s beautiful. One of the most common questions they get about their structure is “Where did you get such beautiful material?”. Here’s the answer (from their Facebook page): “The majority of the timber we used during construction is reclaimed, as we strive to be as eco-friendly as possible. The wood, known as Cumaru, was sourced from a lake in Nicaragua, where it was lifted up by scuba divers.” If you want pictures of what that process looks like, check out their Facebook page! Liz and Ehren were nice enough to share the process with us further in photos.
We know what you’re thinking, “Who are Ehren and Liz and how did they fulfill my dream of opening a beach bar in the British Virgin Islands?” Liz moved to St. Thomas, loved the island life and stayed with us. During her time in the USVI, she met and fell in love with Ehren, and together they created Hendo’s Hideout. Ehren is a Virgin Islander – not a US Virgin Islander or a British Virgin Islander. Ehren is both. He grew up between the USVI and BVI (ideal childhood to us!). After returning home from college, he worked for other people until deciding to open his own business. What would be more ideal than a beach bar on Jost Van Dyke for him and his new bride?
Back to the beach bar! Hendo’s has all of the drinks you love on the beach – daiquiris, margaritas, mixed drinks, beer, Painkillers, Dark and Stormys – the bar is well stocked and the bartenders are talented. Their kitchen is available for beach snacks or lunch. On Sundays, they roast an entire pig for their guests!
