Café del Mar and Café the Beach
These two bars are west of the pier and offer relaxed atmospheres, great views of the ocean, and a more than decent menu.

It’s a laid-back atmosphere but its status as a central point for live music in the area give it a special touch. It’s open from 6 p.m. until late into the night.
Sheesha is part of the Mandalai Hotel and is one of the more stylish venues in the area. The music here can get extremely loud, but it’s got nice views of the ocean. They open at 6 p.m. and close when it suits them, usually late.
