I had the opportunity a few months back to head over to the island of Grenada to hang out with a friend of mine there that works for a sailboat charter company. As part of that month or so I spent living on a sailboat, we ended up sailing up to a few islands in the country of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
So the story behind this odd little island is that a local named Janti who was hired to clean up the island and get rid of the hundreds of conch shells strewn all over the place. He decided to…. well, let’s let Anthony Bourdain tell you the rest — he featured the little place as part of his “No Reservations” piece on St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get into the harbor until the evening, so Happy Island was closed down, and we had to leave early the next day, so I didn’t get a chance to have a drink there.
But, I will be back….
