Fodor's Review

This funky and charming modern beach bar, right behind the airport, serves up fun, great music, relaxation, and a lot of style. The vibe is more like St. Tropez than St. Maarten. Open from 9 am till 10 pm, the restaurant serves up fresh fruit smoothies, tropical cocktails, fresh fruit salads, healthy sandwiches, and tapas. There is live music in the evening. A sign near the shower/bathhouse invites you to "come hang out here and shower before you go to the airport"—in case you want to spend every second possible on the sand.
