There's no shortage of great restaurants and bars on the island, but here's a list of some of our favorite places to grab a drink.

1. The Beach Pub 

The Beach Pub is our favorite island bar! The laid back atmosphere makes it the perfect spot to kick back and relax. Cold beer and gorgeous sunsets are served daily. Enjoy live music every weekend from 2-6, and everyday in season. This place quiets down after sunset, so come enjoy your afternoon sitting in the sand. (Be sure to ask about staying in one of our beach pub units, located just above the bar - you can't find a better location for beachfront accommodations!)
