Extraordinary experience of a roadside rural Coconut Beach Bar! Served by very happy local folk who love where they live and what they do for a living. A must experience!

A friend took me there for a special drink that is pretty much like Moonshine. The drinks are great! It's kinda weird but ia a unique experience.

Before we visited Tortola I read the Trip Advisor reviews and thought this place can't be as bad as the 1 & 2 star reviews make it sound. I enjoy exploring new places and little hole-in-the-wall type places.. Well, here I am writing my review and I am only giving it 1 star. I didn't mind the junk like structure...it... More

I recommend staying at Sabastian’s on the beach if you want to stay on west side of the island then it is good to watch the sunset at Bumba while you have 1 drink. They have a rum punch I tried but would not order again. Get a beer or a pain killer. Good to watch surf if it is... More

I came to Bomba Shack many years ago, came here in about 1990 with a very good friend I was traveling with. I was young then, and it was a "happening!"

Was skeptical of the mushroom tea and we were right on. The only affect the tea had was to make me pee a lot. When we kept questioning the different people there about when the tea was supposed to kick in, they basically told us a keep drinking. That said, the drinks were heavy on the alcohol, the music was... More
