Bomba Surfside Shack, Cappoon's Bay, Tortola

Cappoon's Bay , Tortola
British Virgin Islands
Tel: 284 495 4148's insider take:

To call this beach bar on Tortola's Cappoon's Bay a shack is an insult to shanties everywhere. Still, this jumble of flotsam and jetsam—held together, it seems, solely by the elastic of the panties and bras that hang from every available inch of rafter—has become a must-do for Caribbean pub crawlers. The main attraction is the Full Moon Party, when the grizzled Bomba himself hosts an overflowing horde of partiers, many of who come to sample the infamous hallucinogenic mushroom tea (weak, but $10 gets you a bottomless souvenir cup). And with beverages like that, you can understand how people eventually feel the need to donate their undies.

Opens daily at 10 am. Live bands play Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday.
