A great little excursion! Water taxi over for some rum punch and to play in the shallow waters around it.

This is a really cool island. It is made of coral by the owner of the bar. Beautiful views. Great drinks. The only negative is some of the locals are begging for money.

Yes, the rum punch may be pricey, and a tad small, but they are delicious and the staff are very friendly. We came here with Clem on "Fair Deal" water taxi - the perfect end to our Tobago Cays tour. Can't think of a better...More
