A few dollars gets you a short (2 min.) boat ride to this unique bay built on conch shells. Don't miss this unique experience. With luck, a kite surfer will swoop down and grab your drink right out of your hand!

Great social site with mixed crowd and lots of drinks, an iconic place in the region with comparisons to Foxy's and Soggy Dollar in the BVI. Built on conch shells and concrete, its timeless.

Just go there, see sunset, enjoy the reef and support the owner of the bar and the island! You will need a dinghy or smth like that to get there and get back. Make sure you've taken care of a designated driver before coming back.

Quirky, interesting place for a sun downer. Watched the professionals kite surfing, incredible. A bit expensive for a rum cocktail in a plastic beaker -$20 EC

It's pretty impressive how the owner has built this little island bar of conch shells and how the kite boarders give displays. Just felt like us that we were taken advantage of at 20EC for a very small rum punch. It is double what you...More

Can't say much about this location. It was something to see of of union island but is basically a sea bar. A kool place to take a drink if you need to but. Nothing to special to me.
