The festive season is upon us and the amazing thing about this time of year is that it occurs at a time where the sun wants to come out and show off. To take cover, we have a wide selection of restaurants with the most delectable cocktails to quench your thirst, (make that a non-alcoholic for the designated driver) as you watch the sunset.

Imagine yourself, sunglasses on as the day turns a golden brown while you sip on a refreshingly fruity drink engaging in conversation with the sounds of the ocean calming the day and delivering a cooling breeze – well imagine no more because these top restaurants have the best atmosphere and more for the best sundowners.
