Drinks under the big tree at the end of the beach

Nice bar on the beach to relax for a bit under a big tree and get out of the sun for a while. A great place for people watching.

The food is good but this is not what makes this place magic. It is located in front of the sea and has an amazing view. Thai food is at a good price. Came here often during our stay in phuket.

What a great little place for an afternoon drink! Perched up on the rocks at the southern end of Kata beach - how gorgeous!

What's not to love about this too cute regae bar built into the rocks at the end of Kata beach. Cocktails at night sitting amidst all the paraphernalia. Staff nice, great location.

Great restaurant at the end of Kata beach with a stunning view of the bay. The food was good, the service was great. Overall a fantastic place to spend a few lazy hours over good food and a few drinks.

Had a few drinks after dinner at this bar and had a great time. It's right on the beach at the very southern end of Kata beach so the sound of the sea goes well with the reggae music Worth a visit

Great place to chillax at sunset, have some cold ones, and watch the beach. We ate there (2 families, 4 adults and 5 kids), and I probably wouldn't rush back to eat there, 2 of our family had upset tummys next day (I had red curry fish, son had red curry prawn and didn't think they were cooked properly). Will... More

Perfect dive bar that really makes you appreciate the beach. Very easy to get swept up in the mood of such a bar. Beers ice cold and so chilled out. I could have this as my regular hang out no problem.
