Guidebook for Politilly Bight

Food Scene
West Enders have their night scene, but East Enders have Cal's. Best food, great drinks (Monkey La La is a must try) great views, super unusual dishes. The food is spectacular! Some things you can only get at Cal's. One of the places the Expats hang out. Great conversation there too.

Best seafood in the area, hands down. Sit out on the deck by the water. Stay for a while.

We always go there when we go to West End. Vincent is a great cook and the food is reasonably priced. The bar is an adventure - be flexible, since you might order one thing and get another. Views to the water up on the deck. Nice spot! Be sure to park in the lot outside West End- very little parking these days in West End itself.

Carambola is a labor of love of Irma and Bill Brady, working to preserve and display the fantastic ecology of this island paradise. Carambola is beautiful, the guides are wonderful, hike up the trail to the top and be rewarded by spectacular views of the ocean. If you are lucky, you might catch Bill or Irma there and be treated to two of the most amazing ecologists you will ever meet.

Essentials
ooh, when I am missing La Diosa and Roatan, which is often, I think of Snappers, an unassuming looking store in the MegaPlaza in French Harbor. They have fresh caught grouper! Strawberry, black, and several other kinds, plus fresh shrimp, hogfish (spectacular fish, and it needs a different name). And the fish is CHEAP! Stock up and become healthy. Grill it on our outdoor barbecue, life is good.
