Karibuni, a beach bar and restaurant located on the small island of Pinel in St. Martin, was heavily destroyed in the 2017 hurricane season. One of a few beach bars located on the touristy island just off the island’s northeast coast, the beach bar had to be rebuilt from the ground up after being devastated by Hurricane Irma.
In the video posted by SXM Strong, the owner of Karibuni, Erick Clement, is shown boating one of their staff to the shores of the island. A barge, used to transport debris off the island, greets the videographer who goes on to explore the restaurant and its surroundings.
According to the video, Karibuni has a tentative reopening date of around January 24th.

We were staying in Grand Case when Hurricane Irma hit and evacuated 5 days later to Guadalupe. We were hoping to return this month but did not with current state of affairs.. Thank you for updating us with the Karibuni Rebuild. Pinel Island is one of the highlights of our visit on the island of St. Martin. Our hearts are with you.
