We found The Whale 5 years ago and we keep going back and sadly we always have the coconut shrimps. Lunchtime at The Whale and afternoon on the beach, beat that?

The second floor bar was where we had our first sighting of the beach. The wings are fantastic and the beers were delicious. The staff was very helpful and kind. A must stop.

This is a must go-to restaurant. The mussels are a must (order extra bread for $1). Great service (thank you Elissa!), cold beer, great food. Give it a try...you're welcome!
