Cafe-bar-supply center opens in the Sheffield Desert

On New Island's wild northern coast, where the Sheffield and North Bight Paths meet, a combination café, bar, store and restaurant called Sheffield Corner, has opened. Now travelers on the Paths can get a fresh coffee, drinks, or a full meal along with trekking supplies and water.

In the evenings, the proprietor, Jason, hosts as DJ on the main terrace, offering weary hikers a break for refreshments, music and dancing. This promises to be THE spot to hang out and meet other wanderers on the desert.
