Pinel Island beach was so good that we went back on more than one occasion. Located on an uninhabited island just of the north east coast, access is provided by a ferry. Once on the island, there are two restaurant bars serving an array of food and drinks. One of the things I loved was the bar tables stuck into the sand, and the groups of people drinking ice-cold rose around them. The water was clear, the food was delicious and if I could have stayed longer I would!
