We drove around the island today, then stopped for a bite here. View was great, food was good. Service was spot on. Even made a little friend while there.Next time we plan on trying the wind surfing here.

Great place to learn to wind surf in waist deep clear water. Nice beach bar and fun place to spend the day or afternoon if you need a break from diving for the day.

A great place to come hangout at Sorobon, Hangout Bar, or Jibe City and spend day relaxing in the great breeze watching the windsurfers. Or learning to wind surf.
