1. Executive Chef Fábio’s Signature ‘Zero Miles’ Tuna
As delicious as it is beautiful, ‘Zero Miles’ Tuna starts with seared, sushi-grade tuna hand-caught by local fishers and is crafted with sustainable and seasonal local ingredients, including fresh mango, ginger, and shado beni (a local herb similar to coriander/cilantro) foraged at Secret Bay.

Sweet, savory, and slightly spicy—this signature Secret Bay delight is comfort for your taste buds, mind, and body. Cocoa, fresh cinnamon bark, and bay leaves blend perfectly to make a beautiful morning beverage or afternoon treat. We recommend enjoying the tea outside to bring a meditative moment into your day.
