So, this place is on the very scenic and popular beach in Rendezvous beach. It's a small shack and offers BBQ - chicken and ribs and fish. I got there for lunch at 1 pm and the fish was sold out! Surprising for an island! I ordered the chicken, which was a very small portion - including a paltry amount... More

Between the music, the staff, the beach, and the vibes... this place truly stole our heart! If you're looking for a laid back way to spend your day, go here. You won't regret it. Just be warned, they run out of food early!

Slap bang in the middle of Rendezvous Bay with the music pumping and the drinks flowing, Garvey runs this place with a cool vibe. Seating in front and to the side, with loungers too. Food is good, however the service can be slow, especially if it isn't Garvey serving you! However if you just chill, dig your toes in the... More

For a group of 10 our bill was about $250.00 which included beach chairs and umbrellas and only 7 dishes. There is no question that chicken and ribs were tasty but the portions were barrly enough for an average eater with tiny portions of side dishes. Snapper was not available when we visited and was replaced by mahi-mahi stake for... More

We spent Christmas Day here and Garvey and company made us feel right at home! The ribs and chicken are delicious! This place is a must visit. After lunch we played some beach games and Garvey taught us how to play the ring game. We will definitely be back!

We enjoyed our day at Sunshine Shack. It sits on Rendezvous Bay which is a beautiful beach and is great for swimming. There are beach chairs and umbrellas for use. Garvey, the owner, is friendly and cooks delicious ribs, chicken, fish, or lobster. The staff is friendly and continually assures you have what you want. There is a bathroom on... More

Nice little beach shack with chairs and umbrellas. We were walking the beach up to the Dune Preserve and needed some cold drinks, found them pretty expensive but being able to lounge at the beach with a cold drink , priceless!

Rum Punch was great. Chicken, Ribs and Snapper all excellent. Expect to wait awhile for your food but it is really good. Can't beat the beach location.

Very nice place to chill, playing cool songs in a beautiful beach! The food is delicious, especially the ribs! So good that we returned the next day. The food takes quite a while to be ready, because Garvey prepares it carefully. The second day he promised me some extra ribs but it took so long and I had to go... More

This is an excellent beach day spot. The beach is incredible, fantastic for walking. The sunshine shack offers beach chairs, unbrellas, tables, beachside drink and food service. They have so much to do, cornhole, washers, tons of balls, etc. Everyone that works here is so nice and friendly.
