We had a really fun afternoon at the Sand Box playing volleyball and hanging on the beach, but there was a little bit to be desired in terms of the responsiveness of the servers. Often times there was no one behind the bar at all....More

We pulled up on a Dingy because it looked cool passing by. We felt very unwelcome. The place was fairly dead other then a family on the beach and the employees acted like we asked them to do hard labor when we asked to buy...More

Pulled up in a dinghy and enjoyed a beautifully cooked snapper sandwich and a rum punch - all while enjoying a stunning view of the North Sound. We were practically the only people there, I guess because it's not serviced by the water taxis so...More
