We had a ball of a time at this bar. I think we might have finished all of their South African wine. Nice tapas style food, great people and awesome location! Cholos made up some of my fondest memories of Zanzibar..

We have been to Zanzibar 6 times and no beach bar tops Cholos, by far still our favorite! Love the drinks, love the beach bbq and the best beach in Nungwi!

Amazing location, at what is probably the best beach in Nungui. Great service and crew, amazing food at reasonable prices. The place has a party every thursday, which has a mixed crowed of turists and locals.

Its a fun bar, but has some of the things you need to be wary of in any nightclub. Cool chill out area during the day and they have daily evening activities/parties.
