A sunset bar in Kata Noi beach
After Beach Bar is a very popular Thai restaurant on a cliffside just passed Kata Noi Beach, on the way to Nai Harn Beach. Seen from the road, it looks rather modest with low thatched roofs and old fashioned reggae atmosphere, but it offers some of the most beautiful panoramas on the island and a superb view on the turquoise blue 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, however, 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 almost 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 colour. 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. Everyone comes here to enjoy the large terrace overlooking Kata Noi beach and the glorious golden sunsets. With a chilled beer or coconut in hand and the timeless reggae music, this is as good as your 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 just here for the fantastic views!
