The cocktails...Painkillers and my personal favorite, the Bushwacker, are delicious and well worth the drive over to Skinny Legs. Delicious burgers and fun shopping in the little shops as well. Be prepared to see donkey, cows and deer on the way over.More

I rarely write negative reviews but this place is over-rated. The burgers were charred until inedible. The waitresses were unhappy and seemed more annoyed than helpful. The gift shop has a cool selection but is very pricey. This is a hole in the wall tourist...More

Great drink specials, delicious burgers and fun atmosphere. Downside : Surprised that they don't improve the place a bit. The parking lot and road leading into the place need some major repair. Doesn't look like they have maintained the place at all. Also, surprised after...More

The cheapest way to Skinny Legs from Cruz Bay is via the public bus which leaves from right near the ferry dock and will take you here for $1 each way.

Hi CaptOzzysWench, You can get to us by boat. There is a dinghy dock in Coral Bay just a short walk from Skinny Legs. Thanks for checking in with us! Have fun!
