We have driven by this sign many times and finally drove down in. It is well worth the side trip, very neat bar made from a sail boat and big patio and restaurant. The tin scuptures are very neat.

If you get something from the bar, either food or drink, there is no charge for the beach or museum. Food was good. We also took a snorkel tour out of there that we highly enjoyed!
