Let's taco 'bout Olas! A cute beach shack right on Shoal Bay beach, Olas has been making waves. It is the talk of the island for two reasons that pair perfectly: Tasty beach tacos and a rum punch that contends for "best on-island!"
Welcome to Olas!
Situated in the middle of Shoal Bay, near Madeariman, Olas is perfectly placed. It is within a few steps of the bay's enticing blue water.
Breathtaking Shoal Bay
This wooden beach shack is owned and operated by Bev and his girlfriend, Eulandy. Some of you may know Bev, who also runs The Fountain Resort in Shoal Bay.
Olas is decorated with dried coconut and palm tree leaves, giving it a warm Caribbean vibe...
We settled in at the bar where the blue views are plentiful and the relaxing music soothes your soul.

Eulandy's Fresh Margarita!
Eulandy fills her cocktails with passion, love and care. Her margarita is prepared with pride. Made with freshly squeezed lime juice, it is extra-refreshing.
Fruity Fresh Rum Punch
Eulandy has also perfected the recipe for a potent rum punch! We watched as she sliced fresh fruit - and she did not skimp out on the rum! These rum punches are as strong as they come.
From the frozen section we also sampled the pina colada which had a unique twist. It is made with plenty of fresh ingredients and real chunks of coconut.
