One of my favorite beach hangouts is the El Dorado. This charming surfer-esque styled restaurant and beach bar serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Early morning yogis can head down here for a sunrise yoga session on the upper patio, free! And for the night owls, the bar opens right on the beach serving cool cocktails and stereos pumping good vibes.
El Dorado is directly left of the pier and offers seating with umbrellas and tables to relax at while you swim, people watch or just read a book. The music is always good with laid back beats, perfect for a lazy afternoon. The staff are friendly and courteous, and the food is reasonably priced and always good.
What I really love about the place is the floor and bathrooms. They remind me of 1950’s surfer style with their retro zigzagged and multicolored tiles. Also, on the one side of the restaurant you can usually find art from local artists on display.
