A really nice, tiny bar on the northern edge of Kata beach. Very unique decor and a romantic place to have a drink at sunset.

Tucked away in the corner of the beach, this is a great place for watching the sun set in the evening or even as somewhere to seek shade and a drink when sunbathing. It is only small however and does get very busy so if ordering cocktails in the evening, you need to be patient as more often than not... More

We had lunch here a couple of times. It was very handy to just walk along the beach and grab something whenever you felt like it. The food was fine. Nothing amazing but pleasant enough. The staff were ok. Not overly friendly but not rude either. A good bet if you are spending the day on the beach and nice... More

£4 for a rum and coke?! I had one an moved on. Decent spot on the beach but doesn't warrant charging you that kind of cash.

We ate here twice over our stay. Icy cold beers and amazing spring rolls. The food was really good here with quick service and large portions. Really great thai place.

This is a great setting for an after dinner drink looking over the beach. It's very laid back and an ideal way to finish the evening, we went two or three nights on the way back to our hotel, good prices and choice of drinks. It's defintley worth a visit if your local and fancy a relaxing drink listening to... More

This is a great place to relax, take in the incredible views of Kata Beach and have a cold beer - in the shade. It's a bit tired looking, swarming with ants the day we visited and the service is a little lacking, and but I would still return. The food from the adjoining restaurant is great.

Cozy little bar right on the beach between Kata & Kata Noi. Cold Beer, Good Tunes and friendly staff. A nice way to wind down the evening.
