Chill out heaven

Literally a 2 minute walk from Boathouse to the most laid back bar in the whole of Kata Beach Relax,unwind and watch and listen to the surf coming in or going out against a backdrop of Carribean Ska / Reggae I wish I was there now

Cheap tasty food on the beach. Atmosphere is memorable especially the music and lights at night . Views are of the beach and sea. Everyone catered for as the menu is extensive.

Sadly, the deck area and covered bar with seats is now gone as part of the removal of unapproved structures on the beach I assume. All that remains are a few plastic chairs and benches clinging to the edge of a... More
