A sunset bar in Kata Noi Beach
After Beach Bar Phuket is a very popular Thai restaurant perched high on a cliffside above Kata Noi Beach, on the way to Nai Harn Beach; from the outside, the restaurant looks modest, with low thatched roofs and an old fashioned reggae atmosphere that seems to defy time on any tropical island around the world. As you walk through the restaurant from the roadside, you will discover the beautiful panorama of the turquoise bay of Kata Noi Beach.
After Beach and its neighbours ’Small View Point’ and ‘Baan Chom Restaurant’ feature wooden terraces built on stilts, if you see how it’s made, you might want to step away from the edge. Still, when sunset time approaches, you will forget everything and sit there in awe, like everyone else.
This cluster of restaurants has been there for more than two decades and have always been a popular stopover between Nai Harn and Kata Beach. Don’t miss the new and trendy rooftop nearby called ‘The Sundeck‘.
After Beach is, of course, a bar and a restaurant but also a shop selling an eclectic collection of reggae accessories, you’ll find handmade necklaces, tee shirts and woollen hats with the three official yellow, red and green Rasta colours. The whole thing is decorated with the inevitable cannabis leaf plus a generous dose of Bob Marley songs.
If reggae is not your thing, it won’t matter, and the music is rather discreet. Everyone comes here to enjoy the large terrace overlooking Kata Noi beach and the glorious golden sunsets. With a chilled beer or a freshly harvested coconut in hand, this is as good as your Phuket holiday can get.
The food is good without being exceptional, but the menu is vast, and the prices are fair considering the unique location. The service is not worth mentioning and varies with the weather. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter much: you are mostly here for the fantastic views!
