Fodor's Review

The setting and festive atmosphere at this popular thatch-roof bar at the end of a pier are what draw the crowds here, not the food (although the sandwiches, burgers, and seafood aren't bad for bar food.) The breezy two-story palapa at the end of a pier, about 1/2 mi (1 km) north of the bridge, has stunning views of the sea and reef by day; by night, the colorful bar lighting lends a festive air. Bring a bathing suit and jump in the sea beside the pier (there are handy inner tubes). The Palapa doesn't rock all night, though—it usually closes around 9 pm.
