Fodor's Review

The restaurant and 9-acre playground—an amazing white-sand beach—is the Exumas' party central, particularly for the famous all-day Sunday pig roasts. Play volleyball in the powdery sand, order what's cooking on the outdoor grill—fresh fish, ribs—or chat and chill. There are dances on the beach from January to the end of April when 200-plus sailboats populate the harbor. The new Conch Bar on the beach serves conch fritters, conch salad, and lobster fritters. The beach is quieter on weekdays, and usually not crowded in summer and fall. Amenities: food and drink; toilets. Best for: partiers.

Good and Bad

OK. The bar and grill was understaffed and cramped. The food was OK at best. The service was verrrrrry slow unless it involved alcohol. The beach was amazing when you got away from the bar and conch station. Lots of stinking conch shells and mountains of garbage. My recommendation is to go very early to interact with the stingrays. That's to beat the drunks. Go for the beach and stay away from the bar.
