Caught a sunset game of volleyball between the bar and dive centre guys. Chilled, welcoming, good music and cocktails. Reasonable prices: 700 Rs for a Caipirinha. Free wifi. Great service. Happy.

We had few beers and amazing mojitos here on the beach by the bonfire. The staff and especially the owner is super friendly, location is great and people were on the party mode.

Sadly this was the last place we visited in Unawatuna before we left back home. • Good music • Great atmosphere • Over friendly owner and staff Must visit!

Great beachside bar, so peaceful. Great for pre & post dive drinks. Really friendly fun staff, guaranteed a giggle. I was told it was the best party in Unawatuna and it most certainly is! Make sure you check out Saturday night party night and dance until sunrise.

Is all you need to know. Good drinks. Friendly staff and amazing sunsets. All the guys working here obviously enjoy their jobs and it rubs off onto all the patrons.

Went there for a Chirstmas Eve Party.. which was an acceptable one. This place could be much better with a better targeted / planned events... Over crowded with Beach Boys, not much of a pleasant experience.. and the prices are too high relative to the party... but enjoyed.. location is 10/10.

We went to Unawatuna coz we hear of this beach-party. However, it was a quite disappointing experience. It was a very small party (unlike the Hikka beach festival), but the entrance was as much as for the Hikka fest. Quite unfriendly people and we did not enjoy our evening.

Thank Shan222
