Chill out with a cocktail at Caribbean Beach Bar

This casual beach restaurant is a hub for local nightlife and is the perfect place to watch the sunset with panoramic views of the iridescent Red Sea. The venue exudes a tropical ambience, from its rustic yet elegant lounge environment to its delicious frozen mango daiquiris, which can be enjoyed outside on the wooden decking.

If you fancy a snack, the bar serves up fresh salads, a wide variety of grilled delicacies and elegant international cuisine before turning into a vibrant night spot. It regularly features live Champions League games on the big screen and enjoys karaoke every Tuesday and a big BBQ party on Saturdays.
