We had excellent service on the beach at Karibuni. Very attentive and quick, which I know can be difficult at a beach bar. We were very pleased. Additionally, our food was really good - we both had the poke bowl and it was delicious.

You have to get on a 10-minutes ferry to get to Pinel Island to eat here. But it is worth it. My husband had octopus stew which is full of interesting flavours. My parrot fish is also very well prepared. Beach is only a few...More
