We had a nice burger there though what was amazing is the view and the environment you are in the beer and wine is nice and cold too.

Velit Bay is a day destination. A gorgeous beach bar and restaurant set at the base of a huge coconut plantation! One guy (manager of plantation) lives here and welcomes day visitors. A stunning white sandy beach with hammock , beach furniture, kayaks and more snorkelling and great food is here. Well worth a visit. Did this as part of the Paradise tours 3 beaches trip.

Driving in thru the new imposing gateway curiously, we saw a spectacular view. Down at the beach is a nice little café open air but that's all there is!

We spent a day here by the beach. The view was sensational and the drinks cheap. The restaurant was closed the day we were there but we had taken snacks along so it was fine. Due to the freshwater stream nearby there was an interesting effect that the cool fresh water on the surface wouldn't mix with the warmer salt water below. Made for an interesting swim!
It might be the only place I've swam in the sea under the shade of a big tree.
They don't charge an entry fee which is nice. It is a fair way out of town, about 45 mins. Get a car or take a tour bus out (the tour operators are generally rip offs, although we manage to get them to take our group for 2500vt each somehow that day, I think they had no bookings already).
I don't think there are many activities beyond the beach yet but I gather they are building it up slowly.

Beautiful place to make some reef dives and have a great picnic. Hundreds of cute little nemos and some grey reef sharks.
