It is never a dull night at the SandBar grill, located on Morning Star Beach just below Havana Blue. With its beautiful ocean view and tropical sport bar vibe, SandBar is an open air beach lounge you won't want to miss during your stay in the Virgin Islands.


Although it is known for its fresh Passion Fruit Mojitos and Nilla Pain 'Killas, SandBar offers a wide range of drinking options, including craft beers, wines, and specialty drinks which can be made on the rocks or frozen. They also offer guests an impressive Latin inspired Caribbean menu, crowd favorites being the tapas, fresh off the grill seafood tacos and juicy burgers. If you're not feeling like staying in the lounge, no worries; SandBar offers full beach services on both food and drink orders.

Dress code is casual during the day, nightclub casual in the evening. The bar takes walk-ins, but making a reservation for a Friday or Saturday night dinner is advised. They have a great wait service and offer take out and catering options to prospective customers.

SandBar is a bar and grill that offers Caribbean and Latin American cuisines, as well as seafood. The setting here, as far as the style and level of formality, is informal. This location is open for brunch, lunch, and dinner, so your family can enjoy this option at almost any meal.


To enjoy its spectacular ocean view, SandBar invites all customers to their open, seaside atmosphere, decorated with white and royal blue accents. Their beautiful white Italian Carrera marble bar and dim ocean blue lighting brings the whole setting together, and customers can relax and mingle while listening to an array of live music and DJs.


Set in Morningstar Bay. It is at 5 Estate Bakkeroe. Guests who are checking out Charlotte Amalie should also think about enjoying a meal here, since it is a mile and a half (two and a half kilometers) to the south-southeast of the city.

Open to the public with free shuttles from Cove & Reef to Morning Star Beach, adjacent to Marriott Frenchman's Reef.

This section of St. Thomas has many popular attractions, proud of its spot in a vibrant area that's an attraction all its own. The nearest points of interest from this establishment include Butterfly Garden and Paradise Point Sky-Tram, both of which are just a short drive from the restaurant.
