Bomba’s Surfside Shack

Bomba’s Surfside Shack (North Shore Road, Apple Bay, Tortola) – the bar owner, whose name happens to be Bomba, built his surfside shack on the beach in Cappoons Bay, Tortola in 1976. Not having a lot of money for building supplies, he used driftwood, pieces of tin roofing, broken surf boards and anything else he was able to find or which happened to wash up on the beach. The end result is a beach bar like none other, distinctly eclectic, ever changing, collage of trash … which somehow works. In 1989, Bomba decided to hold full moon parties, a tradition which continues today. Much like an island style tailgate party, the full moon party takes place on the road between Bomba’s two buildings and provides an excellent opportunity for people watching, limin’ and having a great time!
