Had two visits on two days last week and this great little beach bar. But on third day we went it had closed and stayed closed for the rest of our holiday. Spoke to a few locals and it appears the premises weren't owned by the staff who ran the bar. They "rented" it from the people who owned it, who also own the building on the other side of the road from the bar. We have been told that the owners have decided to redevelop the site (on both sides of the road) so needed the current "users" to go. I guess a new bar / hotel / something, will pop up in its place next season - but for now, sadly, The Beach Shack is no more :-(

Since we visited last year they now have a hard outdoor cover so no concerns from the birds in the trees above!
The craft beer they serve is delicious as is the rum punch! The food is very well prepared and presented with 4 clean plates at the end of the meal.
Right on a great beach with no stones in the water so a little swim between courses doesn’t half help your thirst and appetite!!
Very relaxed with no one in a rush - perfect Barbados.

Food in Barbados is expensive but here is more expensive than you'll be expecting for a beach bar. Is it worth it? Debatable. I'm not convinced but my boyfriend absolutely loved the fish sandwich he had and the alcoholic cocktail to go with it was generously poured as well.

Food and drink purchase means you get a sunbed for free - well, except that the guy going to get it will tell you "I'll get you a sunbed for a small tip" and then later get into a fight (punches thrown) with other vendors on the beach as he isn't supposed to be selling "their" sunbeds.

We also had a discount card as part of a deal for The Beach Shack, Jumas and The Lobster Pot and checked if we could use it before ordering; we were told yes, of course - 10% discount would be added on to food and drinks orders, including alcohol. It wasn't.

Beachside on the same run as Juma's, Nino's, Lobster pot etc. WE only had drinks on a couple of occasions but each time it was full of visitors and a lot of diners.
