“Basic beach bar with unique ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

The place is just a typical Spanish "chiringuito" bar with mainly choice of drinks but the setting is fantastic and it is great to relax during sunset or to go with friends for a drink

“The Place to Chill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

Can only be reached along a sandy dirt track from the main road. This trek is so worth it till you reach this gem!! From my first visit to last which was September 2013 I feel at home. Great staff, great view, great feeling. Try some tapas, grab a beer and chill out. Did I forget to say...The a Sunsets are to die for...

“Location, location, location and what happened to the chiringitos?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

If there wasn't the glorious location overlooking Migjorn Beach and the necessity of getting a coffee, water or beer in the Summer heat, we would probably not have gone to Pirata Bus. Loud music - expect a mix of Eurotrash pop to pseudo Ibiza style - can be heard on most of the adjacent beach throughout the whole day. I was surprised by a lot of middle aged white trash hanging out there, nothing like the cool place it is advertised as. Service is minimal, no smiles and German preferably spoken. Expect expensive drinks and always order your beer in a bottle. The tap beer has a weird taste. This is not a chiringuito or Spanish beach bar, serving ok drinks and food. This is definitely only catering for tourists. There was no Spanish person in sight.

“Good spot for a beer after a day in the sun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

Was a great place to chill out. Had the 4 estacions pizza which tasted surprisingly good. Unfortunately they closed early that day (about 7pm) and we couldn't stay for the sunset.
