Ska bar is a little walk to the end of Kata beach and is snuggled into the cliff face amongst the rocks and vegetation. With Jamaican overtones and Bob Marly playing in the background. It's a very comfortable view and has good cheap food. I recommend this place for a relaxing drink, food and atmosphere. ~David

Went here for a drink, great atmosphere, a fire show and beautiful views of the beach. There was also a BBQwhixh they offered us for free while we were enjoying a drink. It's easy to miss, it's down a little street leading to the beach

Hidden in the back streets of Kata right on the beach. Great staff, who don't mind a laugh. Awesome variety of food that was great. If you go on a monday or friday night you get entertained by some of the locals doing a fire show.

Fantastic spot on the beach, under a huge tree. Delicious meals, great prices and very easy to move to the reggae themed beach bar to continue the night after the meal!

In town on main street some nice bars, but this one, was the one we kept coming back to. Fair prices and then located right on the beach, can´t beat that!! It´s a regae bar, and only play regae music, and serve some nice drinks and ice cold beer.

My first negative review. Came with a group of 12 adults and 4 kids. Dinner was hit and miss and meals came out sporadically. My papaya salad was spot on in heat - not too much so you can't enjoy it. But my pad se ewe had too much soy in it and a bit soggy from over cooking. I... More
