Bangtao Beach Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Bang Tao

The nightlife is Bangtao is very much on the 'chilled-out' end of the party spectrum, with several of the best beach clubs in Phuket to be found right by the sand here. While not as lively as the more famous Patong Beach nightlife, they still attract a big and fun-loving crowd and provide a more sophisticated atmosphere. The party scene here is generally more family-friendly, too.

The best of the beach clubs can generally be found towards the southern end of the beach, while a number of popular reggae bars can be found further north. Tinlay Place and the Boat Avenue shopping complex, both at the Phuket Laguna entrance, have clusters  of bars and restaurants that have a faithful long-term expatriate following. You will also find a modest selection of low-cost beer bars around town, meaning that Bangtao Beach provides something for most tastes and budgets.
