Doe Bay Island resort was just what the dr. Ordered for this stressed out east coaster. The staff, the spa, the massage and the treehouse all helped me leave the city and life stressors behind. Thank you for helping me be able to fully vacate.

Definitely a destination to sip on a mixed drink and take in the view. The food was pretty good - small portions, high prices. My boyfriend liked the oysters and octopus. I got the gnocchi - which was okay.

The cafe is 20 minutes or so from Eastsound. Ensure the place is open before making the trek. Six of us sat outside on a glorious day overlooking the water. Busy birds and the occasional boat added to the view. The food and coffee were...More
