  • Fun tourist spot. It's worth the price though of 50 bbd and you get 40 of that $ in credit at the bar. They also have a great private catamaran tour with some great staff. (Ben and Gregory)
  • Entrance is a $20 package with free shot on arrival. Great location and not far from the cruise port. A lively place with great staff/service. Good food on offer too!
  • Value for money. Lots there to keep you entertained throughout the day. Friendly staff, great beach, clean, variety of seating, reasonably priced.
  • Looked like a cool place. Only problem was I was just taking a stroll down the beach and wanted to stop in for a quick drink, that was until a man in a boatyard shirt stopped me and asked how he could help me. I knew he would try to sell me a package of sorts, like a snorkel toor or a beach chair, or banana boat ride or something which is fine, he's just trying to do his job. So I told him I am not interested in a package, just stopping by to purchase a beer. He told me I cant buy a beer that I need to buy a package. I told him again I am here to pay for drinks, not looking for anything free, to which he became rude and said "what don't you understand? You cannot buy just a drink here" I know many of theses bars make their living off tourist packages so I am used to being talked to by the locals who push these packages, but never came across a place who wouldn't let me just pay for a beer. Needless to say I went elsewhere, fortunately the beach is lined with other places just like this one and just as nice.
  • Great beach bar and restaurant. Alot of amenities. Rope swing, pier, water trampoline, snorkeling tours etc... Shuttles to cruise ship terminal. Good vibes only.
