Right and I mean right on the water, adjacent to the seafood restaurant. Good tunes and one of the greatest locations for intimate cocktails in the evening.

Spent a few nights at Ska Bar and loved every minute. The drinks are a little more than other places but still very reasonable. Sitting on the stools outside in the breeze is just perfect Phuket.

This Bar would not know Ska Music from Prince Buster to Madness, Specials to Selector. Music preference is Club Music or J-lo or Pit Bull Definately NOT for Ska Fans. Only Sits about 25 people. Definitely OverRated as a Name to all Ska Fans

Loved this place. It's just a tiny spot clinging to the rocks at the south end of Kata Beach. Perfect place to hang, listen to some reggae (a little blues, jazz, rock) and have some beers as the sun goes down. Definitely will make you...More
