Sandy Bottoms Beachfront Cafe

April 22nd, 2011 by theAddison

Sandy Bottoms is the only beachfront restaurant at the north end of the island from which you can actually see the surf.  They made a few changes last month that make it even a better spot. 

The owners discovered that they owned 30 feet of beach that they were unaware of.  They roped it off and added tables and umbrellas so that you can wiggle your toes in the sand while enjoying a Sandy Bottoms lunch or a cold adult beverage.

Where better to get that adult beverage than at their new outside Tiki Bar?  Artie-The-One-Man-Party runs the inside bar during the week’s day shifts but we caught our friend Russ tending bar at the new patio Tiki Bar.

We have guests at the Addison who are always looking for that perfect beach.  They are concerned that Main Beach might be too crowded for them.  The Main Beach photo shown here was taken from Sandy Bottoms at mid-day, mid-week April.  As you can see, there is plenty of sand between the towels.  If Main Beach does “fill up” on the weekends you just have to drive north or south to one of several beach accesses to find a beach similar to what you see here.

We have guests checking out today that are heading back to Wisconsin.  Kyle and Dawn have been hitting the beaches all week from one end of the island to the other.  At yesterday’s Happy Hour Kyle told me that it was still snowing in Wisconsin.  I think the snow back home just made their last day on the beach that much sweeter.
