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 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 »
  • Great view, tasty drinks, kiteboarders giving you a show feet away and free appetizers. What could beat that? Don’t miss out on a happy hour on happy island.  more »
  • 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!
  • So much fun! It's an island that is a bar. Rum punch is super strong
