Catch was the first beach club to open in Surin Beach on Phuket west coast in 2006. Beach clubs are popular all over the world from Barcelona to Bombay but it's the Spanish who seem to have gotten beach dining down to a fine art. Directly opposite Twinpalms Phuket, Catch club is one of the most chic and trendy restaurants on the island. The cool layout and snazzy background music does a lot to help things along here but really, Catch Beach Club is already in a fantastic location, nestled into sand dunes and directly facing the sea so as lighting goes, a flame-red sun dropping into the mottled Andaman Sea isn't too bad a start and the twinkling stars up above equally impressive, as are the spotlights in the palms.

Cudos restaurant in the Surin Beach/ Cherng Talay area is remarkable. Most new restaurants in Phuket experience teething troubles either in the kitchen, marketing, location or hiring reliable staff. Still, if this is the case at Cudos, on the surface of things it'd be hard to guess that the restaurant has only been open a few months as both its service and ambience suggest a more mature establishment. Cudos is themed on Mediterranean food expertly mixed with local products and as a result the cuisine is not only delectable but healthy and wholesome. Read More...

Laem Singh Beach features seven restaurants in high season and three in the low season but Da Ali is the capo di tutti capi of these beachside affairs. You can tell from the name that there is a strong Italian influence on this beach and indeed several beach workers speak the language, as well as pretty good English.
Before going to visit Da Ali you will have to ask yourself if you can handle a mini workout as to get down to the beach from the Kamala-to-Surin road you will be faced with a steep descent and a heart-pounding, muscle-straining climb up afterwards. Read More...
