Fodor's Expert Review Sand Bar
Run by two Canadian sisters, this popular beachside bar is very good value and the perfect spot to enjoy island time—no shoes or shirt required. The menu includes fresh-caught fish, lobster, and conch, as well as typical North American fare—burgers, quesadillas, and chicken and ribs—served island-style with peas and rice. On Friday, they pull out the barbecue and throw on whatever they were able to get from the store or the dock. The covered wooden deck juts out over the beach offering shade during the day; it's also a great place to enjoy a casual dinner while watching the sunset. The atmosphere is relaxed and the service friendly, and locals often meet here to socialize. If you’re just over for a day, be sure to arrive before 2:30, as service stops for a couple of hours midday to gear up for the evening crowd. If you're staying the night, drop by for some late-evening conversation.
