RELAX!

This is what an island bar should be. Nestled into a hill on the south side of the island this is a great place to relax and get away from all of the hustle of the north end. Just sit back, relax, get a frozen mojito, and some guac. Great atmosphere and staff.

Sure could have sat there all day! So relaxing and a total escape from everything. Loved the Reggae music and the frozen mojitos that are like nothing I've ever had before. The only bad thing is that we didn't discover this place until the last day of our trip. Oh well - we'll be back!

Looks like a page out of Negril. This spot is a Rasta hotspot. Tucked in off the road it appears to be a spot for not only locals but tourist spot to drop in for a beer.

It was a rainy beautiful day on the island. We rented a golf cart and were just tripping around the island getting wet in the rain and loving it. We came randomly discovered this rad place as we were zooming by and decided we had to flip a U-ey and check it out. It did not let us down. The... More

Drinks were good and food was as well. Nice people running it. They have a sister bar in town. The iguanas were resting on the wall which was fun to watch. Good music and relaxing atmosphere.

If you get the connotation, why wouldn't you stop? Cheap breakfast, fabulous drinks, tasty food, excellent vibe, fun music and entertaining décor. The frozen Mojito really is amazing. Mango margarita? You betcha! This is a classic outdoor bar and grill, situated along the roadside. It is nestled into the trees with a dog, cat, random iguanas and a groovy state... More

Nice place to stop for a quick cocktail. Very small place, but that is ok. People bring their dogs there and none of them cause an issue, they were all very friendly and peaceful. The cocktails and snacks were very good. They were a little slow regarding wait service, but we just called them over - all good. It does... More

While traveling around on our golf carts as we were heading towards the South end of the Island, we came across this Bar on the side of the road called the Joint. Looked like fun so we stopped for a drink. Didnt try any food. But the drinks were different. they have the usual, but also fun, different ones.....Very good!

We stayed at a rental house across the street and visited here more than a few times during our stay. Breakfast and lunches were had, and both were good. Their hours are a bit non-traditional (but normal for that end of the island) as they are only open from 10-6. The frozen mojitos are delicious! And the habanero tequila shots... More
