The funky family-run bar and restaurant on the island’s southwestern shore is the heart of this lodging/dining establishment. Neptune’s Treasure hosts a lively mix of yachties and locals. The Soares family (a legendary local fishing clan) serve heaping platters of lobster, fish, chicken, steaks, and ribs in the spacious indoor dining area, which also has a bar and scrapbooks of the family’s record-breaking fishing catches. The family is happy to provide tips on local snorkeling sites and fishing spots, and deftly maintain order amid the festive atmosphere.

The restaurant also offers nine guest rooms and two cottages, all with beach views and air-conditioning. Depending on the season, rooms (with a private bathroom) rent for $97 to $150 per night, and cottages go for $300 to $370.
