Situated at the southern end of Kata beach, Ska Bar is well worth a visit. Whilst I have only sampled the thai selection on the menu, the Ska bar caters for western tastes also. Outstanding som tum and larb gai. Cold beer, great cocktails - and if you catch the Ska on the right day or evening you may even... More

Lovely place to be to watch the sunset. It's located right at the beach, under a tree. Nice cold drinks and delicious food. Free wifi and friendly service too.

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!
