Find Foxy in the Shade of a Tamarind Tree
While many may have heard or know of Foxy’s, they may not know what makes it such a special destination in the British Virgin Islands. In 1968, Philicianno “Foxy” Callwood saw the future sailing in. Yachts, sailors, and explorers set out to discover more of the 4 square mile island of Jost Van Dyke. He wanted to create an environment to welcome sailors to his island home, and that is just what he did. Foxy’s Tamarind Bar was built to greet sailors, travelers, vacationers, and beyond to the area of Great Harbour, Jost Van Dyke, and show them what island life is truly like in the BVI. Since then, Foxy’s has been a party every day—fueling visitors with great music, amazing food, delicious rum concoctions, and unforgettable views of the clear blue water.
“Foxy” has welcomed visitors to the island for five decades with his songs, jokes, stories, but he is known for so much more. He received numerous awards for his contributions to heritage and tourism in the British Virgin Islands, including an MBE (Member of the British Empire) from the H.M. The Queen of England, Elizabeth II; and his bar is recognized as the birthplace of the BVI’s yachting tourism industry.
We recommend this restaurant and bar as a travel destination to our MarineMax Vacations customers for an authentic feel of the islands, as well as the legendary Foxy himself. Grab a bite, try a rum drink, sing along to the island tunes, and relish in the extraordinary views of Great Harbour. We promise that this location is one that you won’t forget!
