What a great place to have a cool drink on a hot afternoon!
This is a surprisingly polished and beautiful beach themed bar and restaurant. Definitely worth a look when you're away from downtown.

“The museum is okay, the site is fantastic!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

The area around this little museum was the nicest restaurant/lounge/bar I went to on the island. They have put a lot of money in to the property and it has a beautiful view, beach and new chairs/tables/bar. I would have stayed all day if I could. Defiantly a stop to make. Best guacamole I had as well :)

“a neat place to visit”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

This is really a cool place. Only thing missing is a nice beach. One of the nicest and cleanest bars you will visit while on Isla.

“Stopped by for a few hours on the beach”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

We were wanting some chairs and umbrellas to enjoy the water. Stopped in and tried it out. Service was good. We just had some drinks and some nachos to tide us over as we had a big breakfast. Water bottom was a little rocky, but not much can be done about that. The reason for not getting 5 stats was that the prices were kind of high compared to other stops on our trip. Not a deterrent though.
