Happy Island, Clifton

Cozy up with a cocktail in hand at the unique beach bar of Happy Island, where happy hour happens around the clock. The idea for this man-made island was born after a mounting pile of conch shells on the reef starting being used as a makeshift bar. Years later, the island serves as just that--a rum lovers' oasis in the middle of the Clifton harbor. Watch kite surfers nearby, take in the Caribbean landscape, taste some spicy wings, and sip cocktails under the sun.

    Great Rum Punch! Can walk there during low tide if you don't mind getting a little wet.
