Great Sunset Bars in Phuket
Where to Go for Sunset in Phuket
You don't have to be a rocket scientist to work out the equation; sunset + cocktail + good company = magic. Thankfully, Phuket's west coast is riddled with places to try out this combination in many shapes and forms.
From the all-white sophistication of Joe's Downstairs to the elevated viewpoint of Diavolo in Paresa, there's a lot to choose from. The only unbreakable condition is that you have to be on time.

1Bars above Kata Noi Above Kata Noi Beach on the way to Kata Viewpoint
Just above Kata Noi, a couple of minutes’ drive out of Kata you’ll come across three adjacent hillside bars/restaurants that enjoy great views and are a lot more relaxing than the sometimes crowded Kata Viewpoint. Each has wooden floors and benches lining their western, sunset-facing sides. Read More...
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.

Many would say that Versace is way over the top and they’d be correct in the strictest term of the expression as it is the highest open-air restaurant in Patong. The views out over the town and beach are spectacular and it’s definitely worth getting there for sunset. Read More...
A room with a view may be what some require for a romantic interlude but for others there's no beating a super-chic restaurant and a mind-blowing view. This is exactly what 360 Degrees restaurant near Layan Beach delivers, with its hilltop vista of Phuket's lush greenery along with a generous swathe of the Andaman Sea.

For beachside chic in the heart of Patong it would be hard to beat La Flora Resort & Spa. The spanking-new resort is a lesson in clean lines, clever use of space and modern thinking. Its two food outlets, the Surface Bar and the somewhat oddly named Current of the Sea handle guests and passers by with aplomb. Read More...
The resort's restaurant is tastefully fitted out and next to the lap pool. You can dine poolside, inside the open-sided restaurant or even on its roof. Tapas and cool cocktails are the order of the day at the beach bar where guests get together to chill out before dinner. Read More...
Way below, the sea sparkles and shimmers in the early evening light. The sun hovers above the horizon as shadows on the wooden deck terrace lengthen. A gentle breeze ruffles the napkins as we enjoy our vodka martinis in one of the most impressive dining locations on Phuket’s chiseled and beach-indented west coast.

Promthep Cape restaurant straddles the hillside and overlooks both Ya Nui and Nai Harn beaches and in the distance lies beautiful Ao Sane Beach. Late afternoon dining here has the double advantage of enjoying some great food and the sunset at the same time. Read More...
