This bar is located opposite a good surf break. Good spot to sit and have a mojito while you wait and watch surfer partner out on the break out the front. Plays good music and nice atmosphere at sunset.

Awesome food and great spot to watch surfing and sunset as it's right on the beach and high enough to see over the crowds walking past. Also a great place for a party after a few lions!

We went to the beach party on a Thursday night. Nice setting directly at the beach. Loud DJ music, sitting on the beach, our feet were dipping into the water. The place was packed with tourists and some local guys flirting with the tourists. We enjoyed it.

We came with our group on our last night together for drinks and karaoke - the best night of our entire trip! The drinks are affordable, especially the cans of carlsberg! Loved singing my heart out to some girl band classics and the bar staff were amazing too. Perfect place to meet other travellers and let loose!

A funky place with funky drinks. A nice chilled out venue right on the beach and quite popular with the tourists. Great place to see the sunset. Went for one drink and ended up staying there for a couple more. Turns into quite a fun place at night.

We went here twice. Right above the beach with friendly staff and good music,although the second visit moved a bit further from the speakers as quite loud. The tuna baguette was fantastic, moist fresh tuna with Cole slaw and crispy fries. I had a mixed fresh fruit platter on the first visit, very good. The omelette on the second visit... More
