If you’re looking for a perfect the-sun-is-out-let’s-celebrate spot, Kontiki is it!
There are so many reasons why you should go visit Kontiki and I’ll try to capture the essence in these words… though I recommend the real-life experience.
The old beautiful ferry named Ellen is where it all starts. She has been turned into a restaurant with an extended outdoor bar/lounge. The owners are the heart and soul of the famous Kontiki spirit and the place will put a smile on anyone’s face.
Here you have good food, drinks and bio wine in the sun, but that’s not all. ANYTHING can happen here, for real! And something always happens when you least expect it. Either it’s private parties on the top deck going crazy or random late-night chats in the outdoor bar. Even naked guests doing late-night swimming on hot summer nights. People in boats drop by for a random 30-minute party. Last summer a small boat came in with 5 guys who drowned it and just before reaching the pier, the boat sunk. The personal had to take off their clothes and swim out to get their stuff for them. Afterwards everyone had a laugh and another beer.
Honestly, there is something really unique about this place. The staff. The atmosphere. The captain’s bar upstairs or the downstairs first-class cabin. Without a doubt, this is my number one favorite summer spot!
P.S. You can even rent it for an overnight stay during winter.
