Windsurfers are added bonus to devastating rum punches. Only reachable by water taxi so expect to spend money for a good cause!

As others have said, it has a great sunset view and I loved that you could see all the kite boarders . Drinks were nice and also this is a cash only bar. best to have a dingy to get here.

Opens about 3pm'ish, closes after sunset, built from coral about half a mile off Union Island's main harbour. It's just the place to be for happy hour - get your dinghy out, fill it up and motor out. Take cash as there's no credit card machine and of course it has sunsets to die for.

It is not fancy, but it is a unique bar, in a unique location, with a GREAT vibe and a very Caribbean friendly atmosphere.

This is another "must do" experience when sailing in the Grenadines. The drinks ain't cheap but they are rather intoxicating ! Measures are generous. Ensure someone is nominated to drive the dinghy back!

Great place for a sunset and beverage. If you are lucky a kiter will come do tricks right out front for a beer or tips!!

I thought this sounded like a real tourist trap and wasn't very keen on the idea of stopping off here but actually its such a quirky little place that it was quite fun. One of those that's kind of so tacky that its hilarious! The owner is obviously a bit of a character and I can imagine its a fun... More

The location and history are interesting and the kite surfers are fun to watch, but you don't need to leave your boat for any of that. It's a pretty dingy bar and the rum punch was no better or worse than others throughout the islands. I recommend taking a picture as you pass by.
