Happy Island Bar on Union

There is an famous bar on Union Island. The Happy Island Bar is a hand made small island located on the reef outside Clifton village with just a bar on it. You need to take your dinghy to get here and they serve only Rum Punch or Beers.

Tobago Cays beautiful anchorage behind the reef

After a nice short down wind sailing from Mustique, we drop our hook behind the Horseshoe Reef in the beautiful Tobago Cays.

It was a tricky navigation as the reefs is 0,5 -1,5m below the water surface. The draft of Mon Ami is 2,7 m. I do not recommend to arrive at or after sunset.

Impressive to have just a reef between our anchorage and the swell caused by the Atlantic Ocean trade wind.
