MAR­JORIE'S AT CAS EN BAS

What started off as a hum­ble rum shop at the north end of Cas-en-Bas beach has be­come a beloved haunt of lo­cals and vis­i­tors who en­joy the sweep­ing arc of At­lantic-fac­ing coast­line and its high-fly­ing kite-surfers. Mar­jorie's is named after the owner who wel­comes one and all to the rus­tic wooden beach bar, in­clud­ing the rich and fa­mous should they stum­ble upon this is­land favourite. The food is Lu­cian home­style and the beers are good and cold, so seek out Mar­jorie's and spend a few hours watch­ing beach life at one of the north's hid­den trea­sures.

MARIE'S AT RE­DUIT BEACH

Zesty rum punch and fresh fish on the grill—lovers of Marie's Beach Shack at the south­ern tip of Rod­ney Bay's Re­duit Beach are a loyal lot, whether they are reg­u­lars at the bar or vis­i­tors who stum­ble upon the brightly painted lo­cal hang-out. Marie is a lovely lady whose hos­pi­tal­ity and ex­cel­lent cook­ing have put her on the map for many years, and at week­ends her lit­tle cor­ner of the beach is of­ten the busiest. Catch of the day is the way to go if you love the fresh­est seafood, but what­ever she cooks is al­ways good, so head to the far end of Re­duit and see why the lo­cals love Marie's.

THE REEF AT SANDY BEACH, VIEUX FORT

Open 7 days per week The Reef of­fers a sim­ple but nicely var­ied menu of Cre­ole and in­ter­na­tional (sea)food, a range of fast foods (in­clud­ing home­made pizza), break­fast, fresh milk­shakes, cap­puc­ci­nos, cold beers and hot cock­tails, at prices as low as they can keep them. The Reef Kite + Surf is lo­cated right next to the cafe, and there are ta­bles inside as well as out­side un­der the gum and sea grape trees right on the beach. Wind­surfers and kitesurfers bring a cool, in­ter­na­tional vibe to The Reef, but the lo­cals love it too, and week­ends are al­ways busy and bustling.
