Perfectly poised on the magnificent Dolphin Coast beach front, The Galley Beach Bar offers a dining experience that captivates and intrigues. Each dish is prepared by the finest chefs and offers a true marriage of flavours that will guarantee a voyage of culinary discovery – from our signature symphony of Seafood Platters to our famous Mexican Chilli Nachos.


Delight the senses further with an exquisite 180° view of the beautiful Salmon Bay whether you are sharing an intimate candlelight dinner for two or enjoying a variety of sundowner cocktails with friends in our crisp dining room on the lower deck. If the call of the ocean is simply too irresistible for the kiddies, our childminders are on hand during the day to supervise while they heed the call.

In a tasteful harmony of opposites, we offer a rustic bar on our upperdeck with large screen televisions for sports fanatics who appreciate a magical combination of frosted drinks, a good game and the dazzling Indian Ocean backdrop.


Step out onto the Starboard side and welcome the sunrise with an outdoor breakfast that includes breathtaking views of the most majestic ocean creatures at play. Witness the mysteries of the ocean at night with our floodlit beach and illuminated clouds of white foam that lethargically caress the shore.

The Galley Restaurant is owner managed and offers secure parking and a kiddie menu. Our experienced and dedicated crew have only one objective – to turn your dining experience into a harmony of the senses.




Driving into Ballito on the M14 (Ballito Drive then Hawkins Road) turn right into Compensation Beach Road. You will find Galley Beach Bar just after the traffic circle on your left.
