Ma'Kai is situated on one of the street corners and facing the coast. In the day it's a restaurant which also shows big screen sport, and in the evening it turns into an incredibly lively spot where the drinks flow and the people start dancing. Usually the music has an R&B flavour so it attracts a certain clientele that like to bump and grind, but I've always had a fun night here. They kick everyone out at 1.30pm which always comes as a bit of a shock as everyone is in full swing and then ushered to the door hastily! The outside seating areas mean you can hear yourself think and have a conversation if you like.
