West End Nightlife

  • Music and BEER

    Another great place to eat and drink is the Eagle Ray. The place sits out over the water and about 20 feet in the air so you do not get "bugged" from the flying pests that are everywhere in West End.(UPDATE) Sadly the patio of the Eagle Ray fell down when Hurricain Willma went through)

    If you are staying in the West end or in West Bay beach area you really do not need a car and the taxis are just at the end of the street if you feel you must get out and about. I you do want to rent a car you can get a small on for around $60 to 70 a day with all the insurance and tax.

    I think you are better just taking the collective or a taxi for those shopping trips or for that trip to Coxen Hole.

West End Warnings and Dangers

    by TinKan Written Apr 17, 2004

    Drinking and scuba diving do not mix and if you have a drink your diving should be over for the day.

    Fill up with water in between dives and you will always have a good dive.

    NO drinking and diving

West End What to Pack

    by TinKan Written Mar 9, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: A back pack for when you are walking around.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Shorts, light pants, light longsleve shirts for the night time to keep the bugs off of you.

    Photo Equipment: Camera both digital and underwater

    Miscellaneous: When traveling around anyplace that has mosquitoes and other biting insects it is best to arm yourself to the teeth with bug guards of some sort.

    Skin so Soft is sold by Avon and works real well to keep the little buggers from biting you and Cactus Juice works as well.
    Cactus Juice can be purchased online at www.cactusjuicetm.com or you can find it on the island in the local shops.

    Cactus Juice also sells an “after the fact” cream that will take the itch away and sooth the sunburn as well.

    At the end of West End there is a little store for all of your grocery needs. You can find most things from home just do not expect to find every brand.
    I do not think you will miss this building.

    Favorite thing: There are many places to eat and drink here and some awesome places to watch the sun set.

    Fondest memory: Watching the sunset after having a few cold drinks with our friends then going back to our swing to have a few more cold drinks.
