Kamala Beach Nightlife

Where to Go at Night in Kamala

Although Kamala has recently grown rapidly, you can still enjoy the seaside village atmosphere that first attracted visitors all those years ago. The beachside bars are a good spot for a sundowner and to catch a glimpse of local fisherman coming in for the night.

When the sun goes down, most visitors enjoy strolling through the village to one of the small local restaurants – basic but tasty. During the high season months, local vendors set up stalls along the beach, so you can pick up some beachwear bargains and souvenirs at leisure. 

Phuket FantaSea Phuket FantaSea

Phuket FantaSea is the island's biggest show. With trapeze artists, a cast of hundreds, performing elephants and other animals and a storyline that blends tradition with fantasy you'll have a wonderful evening out here. Read More...


Bob’s Bar

Though it is less active than the Main Road bar scene, the Beach Road has a few good bars to offer. The well-known Bob’s Bar next to Papa Crab's Guesthouse is open from 14:00 – 02:00 and features reggae music, a good list of drinks/cocktails, and friendly people, especially Bob. It's a good place to get local inside information & gossip. 

Opening Hours: 14:00 – 02:00

Kamala Beer Garden

Kamala Beer Garden is a live music open-air bar with a thatched roof. German run, it offers cheap drinks between 16:00 – 20:00

Phuket FantaSea

Kamala is also home to one of the island's biggest night time attractions - Phuket FantaSea. A USD$100 million Thai cultural extravaganza covering an area of over 140 acres with a live show featuring elephants, tigers and other animals, traditional Thai dancing, pyrotechnics, light and sound, acrobatics and more. Two shows are performed nightly, with an optional dinner.

There's an opportunity to stroll around the grounds and find some more unusual souvenirs at some of the market stalls and shops after the show. You can also meet with the "celebrity" animals for a photo or two. Great for all ages. Read More...

Opening Hours: 17:00 - 23:30 every day except Thursday - Show starts at 20.30
Location: Kamala Beach
Tour Available: Book a Phuket Fantasea Show!

Sunshine Bar

Sunshine Bar is behind the Pavilion Beach Restaurant on the waterfront. It may be small but it has charm. 

Kamala Beach - Second Road

Off the beach are a few restaurant/bars including The Club, Kamala Mountain View and Baan Mai – all good spots to enjoy a casual and relaxed evening. The Apple Tree is cool and has pool tables. Other bars that have pool tables include Traveler Bar (next to Apple Tree), Meaw Bar (near Bank of Ayudhya), Paradise Bar (near the 7-Eleven junction.)

Take advantage of the Black Cat's long happy hours (opposite Kamala Beer Garden) from 15:00-20:00. Then there is the Cobra Bar near the Argentina Steakhouse which gets quite busy even in early afternoon. Don’t forget to check out the Pub located near the new Bangkok Bank. 

Bars in Kamala or indeed in Thailand in general are made out of just about anything. The Bamboo Bar has a corrugated iron roof with bamboo walls and is located near the Club... Charlie’s Bar located next to the Club Hotel looks very hippyish and is little more than a small and friendly looking shack. In the same vein Sure Sure Bar is not exactly Raffles with its Liverpool FC and beer posters while the Rooftop Bar & Grill on the top floor of the Club Hotel is a good place to enjoy the evening Andaman Sea breezes.
