Lovely setting on Lower bay beach. Friendly staff, if a little too 'Caribbean' in speed of service (!), and just far enough away from Bequia's port to deter ALL of the cruise ship day-trippers from ending up there.

I chuckled, having orderd a shot of Strong Rum, when the barmaid asked me if I was sure I could handle it, followed by the bar manager saying "Do you mind if I ask you a personal question? Is your wife with you?! Because that's a divorce in a glass right there!"

Thankfully I was travelling on my own and have been visiting the Grenadines for more than 25 years so I was able to handle a shot or two of their wonderful 84.5% ABV rum!

Prices and attitudes at Keegans are much less extortionate than at so many of the newly built bars and restaurants which have popped up in Bequia over the last 5 years. This place still feels like it used to 10 years ago (if not more) before cruise ships started to ruin this tiny jewel in the Caribbean.

My advice is this: check cruise ship timetables (readily available online) and choose a day when there are no ships due in to really enjoy what this wonderful island has to offer. Princess Margaret and Lower Bay beaches are just stunning, but only when there aren't 1000 people adorning their white sands!

Anyway, thumbs up to Keegans. I had much fun there!

Location superb on Lower Bay beach. We hired their sun beds 10 EC per day, had good sandwiches, rum punches and outstanding Bloody Marys plus attentive pleasant service.If you are staying in Port Elizabeth it is worth the 20 EC each way by taxi for a good day out on a lovely beach.

Great setting for a beach bar. There's a rocky outcrop holding up a steeply shelving beach that could be a surprise for the unwary. Watched the 6 nations match between Wales and Scotland. Good selection of drinks and food. Dirty lavatory.

I had lunch at Keegan’s today. While the food was good, it should not take one hour to get an order of fish and chips, especially since the restaurant was not too crowded at the time. The server was pleasant enough, but the kitchen was way too slow.

The location of this place is great, right on the beach side. You can easily walk to princess Margaret beach and it's just a short taxi ride to anywhere.

The room thought, is small and depressing. we used it strictly for sleep and we try to stay away from it as much as possible. cheap and plastic sheets and it was the only place where I got mosquito bites in my 2 weeks travel around Caribbean- with a lot of mosquito spray on and mosquito net.

Food was average, however I had the best punch rum there- they also have happy hour from 5-7, you must try it. great sunset view and location.

Again, if you are there for 1-2 nights and it suit your budget, go for it. Location and views are great. But sure you can find better.
