Coconut Shrimp and 10 Saints beer please !! Once you have discovered the Nest and Valley Church Beach you will not need to search any more for... More

We visited multiple beach bars throughout the island. Nest won for speed of service, friendly service and Coconut shrimp. We tried these at over 15 restaurants and the Nest won, prices fair and drinks were great as well. Pain killer was particular strong.

Unfortunately it was a day when they had a lot of cruise visitors and they were very busy. This meant that the service was rather slow and we had a long wait for our food,... More
