This isn’t your typical beach bar. Oculta, which means “hidden” or “cult” in Spanish, lives up to its name. Finding it requires being “in the know” – whispers and word-of-mouth are the only keys that unlock its mysterious entrance.

Step inside, and you’ll be transported to another world. Dim lighting and plush furnishings create an intimate, almost secretive ambiance. The air thrums with a carefully curated selection of music to keep the hill vibes going.

Oculta isn’t just about the atmosphere, though. Their cocktail menu boasts a selection of inventive concoctions they playfully call “poisons” – a nod to the speakeasy’s vibe.
