Beer, cocktail, view, sun, cool staff. A little more expensive than others (large beer at 150 INR) and no wifi the day of our visit. But it's a good place on the beach.

Fantastic beach bar, on the beach. Enjoyed a cocktail called Kai, highly recommended if you like strawberries. The food is freshly cooked, full of various spices. Well worth a visit. Thanks Sly for your hospitality.
