Fodor's Review

With pulsing salsa music pumped out by a DJ 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 barbecue with tiki torches, a bonfire, and tables right on the beach. Come at 5:30 to watch the sun set; it's a good idea to reserve ahead.
