New owners who did a much needed renovation on the menu and beach. They offer beach service, which they should have at least 2 people. The Pina Colada's were cold but watery and tasteless. We love the new atmosphere

Not 100% sure but there is a shop might be easier to buy one there and if you can not take it back with you leave out with on of the local children who play on the beach there.

If you are staying in Jolly Harbour just let them know. The beach chairs are free for your use if you are staying in the harbour. They will charge you $10 US for an umbrella if you want one.
