This place is a must do while in San Pedro! It's the perfect vacation hangout, spend the afternoon relaxing, drinking, kind of place! The view is exactly what you're looking for when you're on vacation.

“My favorite bar on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Not only is this bar in paradise
Not only does it have a chill atmosphere
Not only is it at the end of a dock over turquoise water
Not only does it look directly at the beautiful reef
Not only do they serve the best damn pulled pork sandwich in Belize
Not only do the bartenders know how to make a drink like champs

BUT...
You can sit in an inner tube in the water, and from two stories up in the bar they will lower down buckets of beer on a rope.

This bar, is unmatched.

“Great place to spend an afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We stopped here for lunch one afternoon and ended up spending a little more time hanging about because the bartenders, views, and drinks were so great. We had the fish and shrimp tacos, both of which were very good, not the best ever, but definitely very good, flavorful, and fresh. The bartenders were super friendly and talked to us, offering us some spiced mango they had, and adding an extra shot to my drink to "help my boyfriend". All in all, a great place to spend an afternoon.

“loved this place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Went to this place 2 or 3 times during our 4 days in San Pedro...best ocean view, nice ocean breezes, tasty drinks (you must try a "panty ripper" while in Belize!), and good service.
