Fodor's Review

This is Sámara's liveliest beach hangout, with tables and chairs spread out across the sand. Fruit shakes, drinks, excellent espresso, and a creative Italian-flavored menu feed the mostly 25-and-unders who come here for the music, which plays all day and into much of the night. During high season, there's live music three or four nights a week and the kitchen is open until 10 pm. The excellent food tends to draw an older crowd at lunch. There's also beach volleyball and great people-watching.
