The place is in ruins from the hurricane, though Bankie and friends are still playing music under a pitch tent off the beach to a handful of people most nights after 9

Not sure how anybody can give less than 4 or 5 stars. This is what a beach bar is supposed to be! Music, cold drinks, beach-food, and great atmosphere.

Having stayed in Anguilla long term, this was a regular go-to spot for myself and friends. Very funky, casual and original. Best spot to spend an afternoon or evening especially on Live reggae nights. Right on the beach, the bar and it's views are incredible.
