Perfect place to end the day, having sundowners. They also serve food and have nightly fire shows on the beach. Definitely worth a visit if in Kata.

I was here 2006 and was so happy that this place was still alive! Great bar at the end of Kata beach. Friendly and good atmosphere. Very relaxing looking over the beach and the sea to the tunes of reggae music. Love it!

We had several meals at Ska Bar, which is upstairs from (and connected with) Kata Seafood. The servers are friendly, the drinks are good, the prices are low, and the view of Kata Beach is gorgeous. Nice place to hang out!
