Friendly if not slow service, delicious food. Highly recommended! Passionfruit smoothies (sometimes with a shot of rum), hamburgers, flatbread pizzas were all great.

Took a break from the beach and had a few drinks in the shade. Service was slow but we enjoyed the break from the sun.

We loved hanging out here. The chairs are super comfortable and the views are spectacular. They even have a place to put your stuff when you want to go swimming! Plus the pig was really cute :)
