“Eclectic”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Spent a day driving the north side of the island, which included a mini-tour of this shell "museum", a stop at the Callwood Distillery and the eco, glass-blowing stand at Myetts. The shell museum has a restaurant atop that was not open during our visit but we enjoyed our visit with the owner of this property. Would return to try the restaurant for dinner during lobster season.

“Worth a stop”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

You will be amazed by the quantity and types of shells. Don't need to spend much time there, but worth stopping if you're on that side of Tortola.

“Quaint and unique”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Worth a quick visit and photo shoot. Pretty amazing little bar with shells covering every inch in some very clever designs. Not very friendly staff, however...as with most of the BVIs.

Not much to see there. Might have been interesting a long time ago. Neglected now though.
