10 Best Sunset Bars in Phuket

Where to Go for Sunset in Phuket

Phuket has plenty of impressive sunset bars and restaurants, most of which are dotted along the island's west coast. While most of these venues open all day, they're obviously busiest at dusk. You can end the day with an excellent meal and drinks, as well as a  dramatic scenery of the sun setting below the horizon. 

From simple setups on the island's famous viewpoints to award-winning restaurants right on the beach, our list of the most popular sunset bars in Phuket caters to just about any budget level. The only unbreakable condition is that you have to get there on time to grab a table with the best view.
