The location is the Dune Preserve, a two acre strip on beautiful Rendezvous Bay.
Banks built the bar/restaurant in 1995 from salvaged wood and old boats. Over the years it has become known as Planet Dune, and "duneshine" is the signature drink.
Moonsplash attracts locals, tourists, yachts from around the globe, along with neighboring islanders from St Barts and St Martin. This is a more intimate festival where you can have a close up experience with the musical artists as there are approximately 500 tickets available.
