its like sitting on seaside and enjoying some good food with alcohol, the best time to visit the bar is sunset as its name suggest you see the sky changing colors which apparently is not visible from the other end of the resort.

It's good to go 2 hours before sunset, that usually guarantees a spot. Enjoy the view.
