One of Samara’s most popular beach bars, Gusto Beach is a perfect place to squander an afternoon, inspecting the surf and surfers. Park yourself at a table in the sand under coconut palms or take a siesta under a thatched palapa on a big lounge bench. You’re welcome to stay for a while. Secure your stuff in a locker while you swim and rinse off the salt afterwards at the outdoor
The food is excellent: Mediterranean, especially Italian. Service is good. Cocktails are quirky. Prices are at the upper end for Samara but you’re paying for the location. Where would you rather waste an afternoon?
Gusto Beach has a sister restaurant, Gusto Creativo in Samara Centro, open evenings only.
