The Boom Boom Bar, Sunset Beach

Sunset, Hanging Out at the Boom Boom Bar

The Boom Boom Bar is not to be missed on Sunset Beach.  Run by a man named “Man” it is rebuilt after storms each year out of driftwood.  Platforms made of planks with mats and pillows keep you off the sand.  Hammocks are above the platforms and friendly dogs (and sometimes people)  greet you. Yachties park their dingys for the day  and sometimes too far into the night.  Food is available to eat there from Flour Power and the Porn Resort restaurants next door.  “Man” makes fruit smoothies, a variety of mixed tropical and standard drinks and serves cold Thai Beers.  He has a good sound system and CDs for the day and “The Sunset”.  (I and a few other people have burned CD collections for him.)

From the song “Millionaires Holiday”-  “A glass and a shaker, our host is a real scene maker.”

(Bring mosquito repellent and  a flashlight (torch) so you can stay late and find your way back to the other parts of the island.)
