Create an itinerary including Happy Island
Cozy up with a cocktail in hand at the unique beach bar of Happy Island, where happy hour happens around the clock. The idea for this man-made island was born after a mounting pile of conch shells on the reef starting being used as a makeshift bar. Years later, the island serves as just that--a rum lovers' oasis in the middle of the Clifton harbor. Watch kite surfers nearby, take in the Caribbean landscape, taste some spicy wings, and sip cocktails under the sun.

  • Thus far, we have visited this place twice and both times have been impressive. The first time was during the day and the owner of the place showed us some lovely photographs of when he first started it. He is extremely friendly and clearly works hard. The water was lovely and clear. During the day, it is a relaxing place to read a book and look at the beautiful water. Seriously, seriously strong rum punches. It was an extremely jovial atmosphere when we attended for the second time. There were several people in attendance from some nearby yachts. If you want to go to a place for a quiet drink, Happy Island at night is not quiet, at least not on this particular night. The music was great and there was also an impromptu conga line.
  • What an incredible place. Originally made out of conch shells. The rum punch is strong, the sunset is stunning. A must visit when on Union.
