Home to the famous (and infamous) Full Moon Party! You think the name is just a good title for a beach bar until you get there and realize that it is in fact a ramshackle pile of debris built and run by a guy named Bomba! If you are anywhere in the Virgin Islands during a full moon, this is the place to be! Feels like the entire chain of islands is there, partying all night long to the sweet sound of Caribbean swells in a mushroom-tainted frenzy.
That's right, I said MUSHROOMS. The hallucinogenic kind... They're legal in BVI and a number of entrepreneurs have built their whole business around the sale and distribution of them. They have business cards and everything! The Bomba Shack itself offers up a pretty weak mushroom tea during the Full Moon Parties. Help yourself, it's not very potent. But if you're looking for the real deal, a line of mini-vans will be parked alongside the road to the West of the Shack, each selling various varieties and potencies of 'Shrooms, along with a delicious honey dipping sauce to help them go down.
This is party you'll never forget, at least if you can remember it in the first place! Also, it's just a charming beach spot for cocktails any time of the month!
