This is a wonderful place to enjoy the Gulf of Mexico. Come play volleyball, swim in the tide and then kick back for a frozen drink and Mexican Style Shrimp Cocktail served like Salsa with tortilla chips.

We have a condo just 0.7 miles down the beach, but like to come here for the Turbo Pina Coladas. In October they hold the Sand Castle festival right there on the beach. There is always some amazing work at that event.

We hit this a couple of times and loved the low key vibe. The drinks and food are what you'd expect from a beach bar. The staff are brilliant. The location is unparalleled. Would I come back? Hell yeah!
