Happy Island, Clifton

#1 of 7 in Things to do in Union 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.

  • This cool little rum bar sits on a small island built from crushed conch shells. You can only get there in a dingy or other small boat as the water surrounding is very shallow. It doesn't open till...  more »
  • this little island is a must if you are visiting Union Island. Jonty (the owner) is really friendly and the views over the southern Grenadines and beyond are simply magical, especially around sunset.  more »
  • What a fun and unique experience! We were a group of 16 sailing around on 2 Cats and went to Happy Island for a night of Amazing Food, Drinks and Dancing and it didn't disappoint in the least. We were accommodated with a table large enough to sit all 16 of us and the Food including Lobster, Fish, Bbq Chicken and sides was Amazing and just what we all needed after a long day of sailing. Hint, def call ahead early in the day and let them know you're coming and with how many in your party.
  • Tourist trap? Yes. But it's still worth a visit. If you are in Clifton or on Palm Island anyway, don't miss the chill atmosphere and a chance to chat with other folks on holiday while sipping a slightly over-priced rum punch or two here. There's a great sunset view waiting for you!
