We stayed at the sand castle on the beach Resort! And I believe that the best food on the island is here ! The menu is very eclectic to every taste! They have the best chef on the entire island!

Had brunch including breakfast bowl, crab blt and shrimp and grits. All very filling but we had to try dessert. Scrumptious rum cake and bread pudding to die for. Beautiful beach and blue water!
