Fodor's Expert Review Karakter Beach Lounge
$$$ Simpson Bay Eclectic
This charming modern beach bar, right behind the airport, serves up fun, great music, relaxation, and a lot of style. Open from 9 am until 10 pm, with nightly live music in the evening, the restaurant makes fruit smoothies, tropical cocktails, pastas, seafood, and tapas. 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.
