We took a group outing one day to this fabulous place and the food and drinks were amazing! So fun to sit out in the ocean like you’re on a deserted island 🌴.

We took a private charter for lunch here after sailing around the island. Small island and not much shade but the sand and water is unlike anything you will experience on the mainland. This is deserving of 5 stars as the food is almost as...More
