Default Barnasty - 6th best beach bar in world!

According to a survey printed in the Fail.

Amuses me the survey was sponsored by Cheapflights!

THE BEST BEACH BARS ON EARTH
  1. Pelican Bar, Negril, Jamaica
  2. Badeschiff, Berlin, Germany
  3. Ty Coch Inn, Porthdinllaen, Wales
  4. The Beach Pavilion, Hayman Island, Australia
  5. Tabon Te Keekee, North Tarawa, Kiribati
  6. Barasti, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
  7. The Watering Hole, Cornwall, England
  8. Flora-Bama Lounge, Pensacola, Florida, United States
  9. Purobeach, Tivat, Montenegro
  10. Shimmy Beach Club, Cape Town, South Africa

Comments about the place:-

Barasti in Dubai is a terrible place , full of recruitment consultants dressed like members of TOWIE whilst clubbing together to buy half a lager . The Jetty Bar on The Palm is more more stylish with less riff raff !

Barasti beach bar in Dubai is a total dump! Nasimi beach is so much nicer!

Not my favourite bar in Dubai by a long way. However I do like being on the beach with a shisha and a beer in the evening and there isn't many places that do this.

During afternoon/early evening it's generally not a bad bar.

**** off.

We've debated this before. Until sunset it's alright. After that it's cuntville.

I haven't been in months, in fact, not even this year.

I don't go to that end of town much anyway. Nezzas prices seems to keep out the riff raff.

I quite like going down to the Irish Village every now and again but I really do need to go out in Bur Dubai.
