Every year this dive doesn't disappoint! Great lunch while you are at the beach. Set up your umbrella close by because you will want to keep going back for the yummy turbo pina coladas! Ceviche was very fresh - good choice!

Good concession stand food right on the beach. Nice atmosphere and I enjoyed having a drink at the bar and looking at the water. Would recommend and would like to visit again.

Fast & fried food are the only options. Mostly a bar for those on the beach. Food was good, we had fish/fries, fish sandwich/fries, burgers and corn dogs between the 6 of us. Small place, only outside seating not kid friendly really.

Wana wana is just fun. Best ceviche. Best dark rum pina coladas (yes I like getting caught in the rain). Fast service. Sand volleyball court. Great entertainment. It is simple but delicious.
