To experience a different side of the island, away from crowds and development, head east to Cas en Bas Beach for a quiet escape. In addition to the charms of its rustic setting and the floor show provided by kitesurfers and horseback riders, Marjorie's ramshackle beachfront bar delights with simple and affordable meals. The owner's warm personality has won her many fans: A photo of her posing with singer Amy Winehouse hangs in the restaurant. On the deck of the bar, loungers are set up for post-meal naps.
