Sustainability spotlight: LimeOut
THE Caribbean’s first floating swim up bar opened off the coast of St John in March, and it’s hitting all the right notes with the tropical island’s tourists.
Called Lime Out, the green coloured boozy barge bobs around 60 metres offshore from Hansen Bay Beach offering “drive-through-style” service for boats as well as a sea-level wooden bar with submerged bar stools on the other side, encouraging visitors to relax, take a load off and let the turquoise waves do their thing. Customers can select specially crafted cocktails, which are outdone only by the handmade tacos. And not only is it a holiday-maker’s dream, it’s also good for the environment. The boat is completely operated by solar power and only uses biodegradable, recyclable or reusable packaging.
