Beach little bar at the end of Kata Beach. Food was good, service was friendly and good. Food was good value. We ate Thai mostly. It poured rain one of the afternoons we were there (we went there 3 times)and the staff made sure everyone possible got reseated out of the rain. Nice atmosphere.

Nice vibe in this place up in the rocks overlooking the ocean. Easy listening reggae but little ska.

I was expecting so much out of this place, however the drinks were terrible! If you want a watered down fruity cocktail then this is the place for you. Check out Patong Beach instead!

Sitting in this beach bar set up in the rocks overlooking the bay was a particularly pleasant way of spending an evening! The music was easy reggae & the waiters helpful.

I really enjoyed it here - especially later in the evening - cool vibe, friendly service & a nice place (beachfront) to relax and enjoy a drink or two.

This is an interesting bar overlooking the beach. The tables are nestled under the trees with seating directly on the rocks. The service is good with a wide range of drinks and cocktails, priced well. Worth popping in for a quick drink.

Cozy bar right on the beach between Kata & Kata Noi. Beer, drinks, and friendly staff. Nice place for a relaxing evening.

Just love this bar, shade if you need it, cool tunes, great food, and a fire show on a Tuesday and Friday. Great view of the beach, and the sunset.

Lovely, small and secluded. Enjoy the cocktails here and the reggae music - it's not traditional Thai but the combination, next to the beach - especially at night - is lovely...!
