We enjoyed a few drinks at Happy Island and would recommend it. You can get to it with a quick water taxi ride.

I thought this sounded like a real tourist trap and wasn't very keen on the idea of stopping off here but actually its such a quirky little place that it was quite fun. One of those that's kind of so tacky that its hilarious! The owner is obviously a bit of a character and I can imagine its a fun... More

The location and history are interesting and the kite surfers are fun to watch, but you don't need to leave your boat for any of that. It's a pretty dingy bar and the rum punch was no better or worse than others throughout the islands. I recommend taking a picture as you pass by.

Great place to spend an afternoon, but be prepared for a long session at the bar. Get a water taxi out - Pedro did the job for us

This is a must-do if you are cruising anywhere near. Anchor out, take the dinghy to the bar, get a rum punch and watch the show. Kiteboarders demonstrate unbelievable control and skill. A young girl stretched her hand over the seawall with a bottle of beer. A kiteboarder cruised up, wheeled almost to a stop, and gently took the beer... More

Stop on the island for drinks, but be careful with rum punch and other substances you might be offered. We were a bunch of girls and could barely make it back to our boat haha!

Great fun place with fantastic bar staff and a wicked run punch! This is the place for sundowners and party time - just don't drink too much if you need to drive your dinghy back through the reef!

Drink what you want, smoke what you want and play whatever music you want on the cozy but great fun island with a bar and big smile for all guests.
