Skinny Legs is an open air bar and restaurant with a sail cloth for a roof -- it doesn't get much more casual than that. They are a laid back, family-friendly spot on the quiet side of the island, where guests can get in a game of darts or horseshoes while grabbing a bite to eat. They also often host fundraisers and have live music for their guests during the high season, as well as parties for Halloween and the Kentucky Derby. They are also the home base for the Coral Bay Yacht Club which hosts several regattas each year.
