Excellent location to hang out and enjoy the beach. There is a conch salad shack which is excellent, but you have to catch them early before the finish the conch. Pretty cool to play with the rays that show up when the conch salad is being made. As far as the main restaurant/bar - I would order what I had... More

I would recommend going to this island and hiking to the stunning beaches Just make sure you try and visit when it's a nice day. We got rained on pretty good and there was no shelter and the winds picked up and it was cold.
