If you agree that all it takes to be a beach bar is a few seats, a bit of shade and someone serving cold beer, then this, let’s just say minimalist, place fits the bill. The bar consists of a couple of planks covering a few cinder blocks, and the seating is an eclectic mix consisting of tree stump stools, a picnic table or two and a few kitchen chairs. The back seat of an old van serves as seating behind the bar. But there is ample shade (and flags) and it occupies the front line on Pinney’s Beach, as close to the water as you are going to get, with an unobstructed view of St. Kitts. Expect a handful of locals and a few adventurous beach-combing tourists. You’ll get an enthusiastic welcome, friendly conversation and a cold beer at unbeatable prices. Don’t expect much more.

What will you have?

Beer: Carib, Stag and maybe others served from a cooler.

Rums/cocktails: I counted seven bottles on the bar: two rums, two vodkas, two gins and Jack Daniels. Could be more in the cellar (the trunk of the bartender’s Suzuki).

Food: Whatever you bring with you.


OK…so I’m not even sure if this is the right name for this place. It’s also known as Ganzi’s Bar. There are no signs, but I’m pretty sure that’s what the bartender said it was called. Let us know if you find out otherwise.


An unpretentious place (about as unpretentious as they come) to grab a beer on the beach and soak up the scenery.
