We stopped at here after snorkeling at Sandy Point. The service and food were excellent. As with everything in Frederiksted, the people are laid back and friendly.

If you are carrying your beach gear then we suggest taking a very short taxi ride. A few minutes in the van and $6 later and your at the beach!
