The bar is now part of the Hotel and is next to the restaurant. It is not on the beach any more. It was closed on the day of our visit as it was a Government holiday.

It is among few bars on havelock island. Drinks is decently priced however, the cocktails are very expensive. They play good music at night. Great place to have a good time.
