This was one of our favorite beach bars, they have great Kabobs, we had the shrimp and chicken, with a side of onion rings that were excellent. Again, this is a beach bar and should be in a different category !

Nice little French restaurant right on the beach but nothing special. A little bit on the winy side but with a nice view on Pinel island, flat Island and green Kay.

I do not know if or when Le String will be re-built. It is such a shame that that stretch of beach has been washed away and that the seaweed is so bad on the eastern side of the island.

The so-called Butler is an employee and does a great job. Great place to visit. Missed this year but will be back June 2017. First time we have missed in 20 years.
