great to catch a boat from Sandy Ground and go there for a few hours. Nice environment, good food selection, updated gazebo, can play volleyball, great snorkeling.

This place is incredible. The staff couldn't be friendlier. The food is great! We tried all of the drinks and they work lol We had the best time here. The food was better than we would have ever expected to such a casual operation. When Dion and the crew (Bernard, JoJo, Derrick, and Chef Berry) show up, they set up... More

I can't even begin to tell you all the stories I have had on this amazing little island off the coast of Anguilla! I used to live in Anguilla and even though most people don't do the "touristy" things close to where they live, I went here all the time. The employees were and are my family away from family....

If you want to experience an island surrounded by water to play and sun the day away this place is it. You can only get there by boat and you can stand in the middle and turn in a circle and see water on all sides. There's a restaurant which serves great lobster as well as other things. There are...

We went there trying to find a good spot for snorkelling in Anguilla, what is not easy task to do comparing to other places in Caribe. The snorkellig was not good (thousands of dead corals, we heard was caused by a hurricaine in the 90s), some fishes but nothing special. What surprised us is the quality of the food served.... More

Visited in June 2012. Loved the Mahi Mahi, and the others in my party enjoyed their entrees. We anticipated the food being middling, at best. Instead, this turned out to be a pleasant surprise. It's not Blanchard's, but still worth every penny. Absolutely great experience.

If you are looking for mega beach activities this is not the place for you, however, if you are needing a quiet, tranquil day at the beach, this is the perfect spot for you. It is a small peace of heaven sorounded by sand. The boat ride was wonderful and affordable. The food was good. There was enough places to... More

Great place to spend an afternoon. The staff provided great service. They cared about showing us a good time. We snorkeled, played volleyball, played DJ, ate lunch, drank cocktails and lazed in hammocks. Food & drink was a bit pricey but to be expected. Cash only.

I have eaten here twice now on two separate occasions. It's a cute little island you take a boat too. They are incredible friendly and nice here. My husband loves the ribs. The fish is not fresh. Both times, it was just terrible. Other than that, it's a great relaxing spot with good service. Once you order lunch, it will... More
