It's hard to find, so look for the Fairmont Pavilion and the chic Lone Star Inn -- it's between the two, behind a lime-green house with a "Dive Barbados" sign.
Appropriately, the bar specializes in fresh fish, including the flying variety.

38. Hula Hula Beach Bar (Hvar, Croatia)
If it's good enough for JAY-Z and Beyoncé, who have stopped by for drinks, it's good enough for a top 50.
At Hula Hula, deck chairs rest against the Adriatic Sea offering views of the stunning Croatian sunset.
Come 5 p.m. the bar turns into a massive dance party featuring live DJs, dance parties, table dancing and Grand Prix-style champagne showers.
The town of Hvar, where Hula Hula is located, has an Ibiza-like party feel, but is considerably more low-key and friendly.
Located in West Hvar, a 15-minute walk from Hvar city center, open from June to September, Praia do Rei Costa da Caparica, Croatia; +351 967 777 424
37. Basil's Bar (Mustique, The Grenadines)
Perhaps Mick Jagger comes for the lobster, perhaps he comes to get down with regular Joes -- Basil's prides itself on being a place where "sailors party with business moguls, fashion models, gardeners, rock stars and schoolteachers."
It opens at 8 a.m. for banana pancake breakfasts and the place is still hopping late at night, when DJs and house bands join the party.
Basil's Bar, Kingstown, Mustique, St. Vincent and the Grenadines; +784 488 8350
36. Moomba Beach Bar and Restaurant (Aruba)
This big, open-air restaurant and bar jumps from breakfast till 11 p.m.; not a late, late place despite the efforts of its happy DJs.
Sunday nights are popular for $25 all-you-can-eat barbecues, as well as more rarefied dishes like Tuscan chicken pate with spiced cranberry sauce.
Moomba Beach Bar, JE Irausquin Boulevard 230, Aruba; +297 586 5365
35. Lagoon Bar (Bora Bora, French Polynesia)
Guests of the St. Regis hotel have to climb out of their over-water villas and take a golf cart to the over-water Lagoon Bar. Non-guests are also welcome.
The restaurant and bar is suspended on stilts over the turquoise water so look down and you may catch a glimpse of dinner darting beneath your feet.
World renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongetrichen offers a menu of local seafood with European influence.
It's one of the most extravagant beach stays on this list, with a hotel room running to $1,000 a night.
Lagoon Bar, Motu Ome'e BP 506, Bora Bora, French Polynesia; +689 607898
34. Sunset Beach Bar (St. Martin, Dutch West Indies)
St. Martin's Princess Juliana International Airport is consistently ranked by pilots as one of the world's most challenging landings, given the low approach that has planes coming in right over the famed Maho Beach.
