A few dollars gets you a short (2 min.) boat ride to this unique bay built on conch shells. Don't miss this unique experience. With luck, a kite surfer will swoop down and grab your drink right out of your hand!

Great social site with mixed crowd and lots of drinks, an iconic place in the region with comparisons to Foxy's and Soggy Dollar in the BVI. Built on conch shells and concrete, its timeless.
