From a shakey pre-season start, warm beers, africa food dishes only, but tasty management are now getting an identity together for a smooth running relaxed little beach bar. Here is for passers by or those prepared to hike up the soft sand from Palma Rima...More

This is a great little beach bar. You can lay on the beach enjoying delicious food and drink. Beds and umbrellas are available for free, you just tip the bed boys as you leave.

Hi Yes it was Thursday night. BBQ was more of a warmed up dinner done in the kitchen - In my opinion It`s not worth the trip, If you want a beach restaurant, go to Poco Loco. Great food and music every night
