With pulsing salsa music and a pasta buffet, this beachfront bar attracts a big crowd on Friday nights, starting at 7. There's a mix of ages, and the music is loud and a lot of fun. Tuesday nights there's a beach barbecue with tiki torches and tables right on the beach. Come at 5:30 to watch the sun set; it's a good idea to reserve ahead.
