We ordered drinks from the bar and it took almost 30mins for 2 bloody mary’s a beer and a frozen drink. We were the only customers there, maybe for good reason. Nice atmosphere right on Sorobon bay made famous for the great windsurfing.

My husband and son did the beginner windsurfing lesson, which they enjoyed. The water is so shallow and blue it almost does not look real. My younger son walked out to snorkel, which he enjoyed. You do need to pay attention to the windsurfers as...More

It's a Nice spot but dangerous for little kids. The surf students can run over them. You better pay cash otherwise it's possible they charge you twice.
