Quirky bar, lovely location by the sea. We visited this bar at about 10.30pm and relaxed with a drink listening to the music and surroundings. Really nice place to relax on holiday!

Very cool experience! The ska bar is a very cool Reggae bar at the beach. We had our hotel about 200m next to it and enjoyed some drinks in this special bar. Very easy going, no luxury, but just a very nice relaxing place.

Had food and drinks here and very sure gave me the worst food poisoning in my entire life. I was even admitted into hospital still on Phuket which cost hundreds of GBPs and days on I'm still recovering. I can now joke that that was the most expensive burger I've ever bought! ... I'd recommend you go to one of... More

Went twice in last couple of days.its at the end of beach and seating arrangement is unique. Very casual bar, beers are not pricey,beach looks great from there. Staff was calm. Ordered some sides and salmon in lemon sauce, both were good. They are open till late and music isn't too loud so ideal place to strike conversation!
