6 Of the most beautiful beach bars in India


There’s nothing like a well concocted drink to help us unwind after a long day. Add a beautiful view of the ocean to that and it just can’t get more perfect. There are some amazing beach bars spread out in the country that are meant to give us just this experience. All we can say is, lucky are those people who get to call these cities home!

With so many vibrant beach cities that pulsate with life and fun, we have our share of bars by the beach. Some of them are so good with all the drinks, food and the beautiful architecture that they have to offer, that they keep people coming back for more, sometimes from all over the country. Here is a list of six such bars next to the ocean which can perhaps be deemed as the best in the country.

One of the treasures found off the shore of the Anjuna beach, the Curlies is probably the most popular beach-side bar in the country. Unarguably, there is a certain quaint-ness and a beauty to experience in this place. Without the usual over-crowdedness, the beach and the shack too are great for one of the most beautiful beach bar experiences.

If you want to soak up the party vibe of the ever-vibrant and beautiful Baga beach, not to mention savour the Arabian ocean in all its beauty, Brittos is definitely a great place. The food and drinks here are great too apart from the location. The only downside is that this place is almost always crowed, so you better make sure you get yourself a table reserved before you get here.

BOATS, short for Based on a true story is one of Chennai’s new value additions – a bar by the beautiful Besant nagar beach.
