Sitting in this beach bar set up in the rocks overlooking the bay was a particularly pleasant way of spending an evening! The music was easy reggae & the waiters helpful.

I really enjoyed it here - especially later in the evening - cool vibe, friendly service & a nice place (beachfront) to relax and enjoy a drink or two.

This is an interesting bar overlooking the beach. The tables are nestled under the trees with seating directly on the rocks. The service is good with a wide range of drinks and cocktails, priced well. Worth popping in for a quick drink.

Just love this bar, shade if you need it, cool tunes, great food, and a fire show on a Tuesday and Friday. Great view of the beach, and the sunset.

Lovely, small and secluded. Enjoy the cocktails here and the reggae music - it's not traditional Thai but the combination, next to the beach - especially at night - is lovely...!

We like this resturant and have used it a lot in the last few years and never had a bad meal,the bar at the side of the resturant is also good for a chill out with a beer.

Chilled out cool place with good food and great music. Dinner was nothing extraordinary but a good meal for a great price. The location and vibe of the place was great and enjoyed a few beers while listening to reggae. Would visit again for sure.
