Spent a fabulous afternoon hanging out at the Palapa. The guys at the bar were great and even knew how to make my Caesar! We lounged in the floating tubes, hand drinks and snacks. A perfect way to spend our last day on the island, only wished we had found it sooner.

2 story thatched hut out over the water! The drinks and the food were great! Spent the entire evening there drinking with the locals and telling jokes- it was a blast!

This place was wonderful. It sat out on the water so you had the breeze from the ocean to keep cool. And if that didn't do the trick you could get in the water and float on an inner tube with your drink. Don't worry about getting out of the water for a refill just yell up to them and... More

Wouldn't call it "fine dining: by any stretch of the imagination, but good burgers and pulled-pork, and very superb drinks in about the best setting you can imagine. Need a golf-cart to get there, just north of San Pedro, and don't forget to slow down and pay the bridge toll!

We are currently in San Pedro and went to the Palappa Bar just today. We came last summer and went there - for dinner - and that was good. No complaints. So this time we wanted to go sit in the tubes and relax on a beautiful day, and had heard about drinks being dropped down to you. Sounds magnificent... More

Awesome venue day and night. Love the whole menu, sometimes difficult to decide what to order. My favorites are The Superwoman Panco Shrimp, deep fried bacon and shrimp burrito also the burgers are huge and wonderful. Ivan and the crew are excellent!

The view from this bar couldn't get much better. Being from california, it was very reminiscent of many bars on catalina island. More margaritaville and less Caribbean in my mind, but definitely fun and gorgeous. Filled with tourists when we were there. We had ceviche, pork sandwich, and beer. Food was fine, staff was extremely nice. The waiter let us... More

Nice bar, super great burgers. Beer is cold, local hangout the night we were there, and atmosphere galore. Had a great time, loved the food, and the views.

You are sitting 300 hundred feet into the Caribbean Sea and we enjoyed every minute of it. All of the bartenders are great and worked hard to make sure that we enjoyed our stays. The rum punch is great and the beer is cold. The pulled pork sandwich, deep fried dill pickles and sausage dip are great to snack on... More

This place was awesome. We stopped here on our way into town from where we were staying for a drink. The drinks were tasty and the atmosphere was fun. We had a blast hanging out here, watching some football, and relaxing. I like that you get to write on the walls, floors, ceilings, etc. It was fun to see what... More
