Kamala Beach Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Kamala Beach?

Kamala Beach’s nightlife is modest but the beachfront restaurants and bars and beach clubs make it quite unique in Phuket. Visitors can enjoy local cuisine at good prices, sip on exotic cocktails, and groove to diverse music genres. Whether it’s a laid-back beachside evening or a lively dance party, Kamala Beach offers something for everyone. For those who prefer something more spectacular, there are two immense theme parks called Phuket Fantasia and Carnival Magic with stage performances. On the road away from the beach, there are still a few old-school beer bars where travellers can still sit with local girls and have a beer with snacks and play a pool game while watching sports on tv.

1. Beachfront Bars

In the middle part of Kamala Beach, you will find a few tiny local bars made of bamboo serving surprisingly good cocktails at a low price, making this one of the best options to end the day sitting with a drink while looking at the sun gently disappearing behind the horizon.

2. Beachfront Restaurants

There are a lot of small restaurants with terraces all along the central part of Kamala Beach, and the many coconut trees lining up the path add a perfect tropical touch to the setting. Most restaurants serve Thai food and a choice of classic Western dishes such as burgers, sandwiches and pizzas. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and prices are very reasonable.

3. Cafe Del Mar

Cafe del Mar is famous enough and won’t need an introduction. The place is often packed in the evening and the narrow sitting makes it feel quite crowded. Guests can order tapas and drinks. Cafe del Mar is a party place with a live DJ and pool events, with loud music that will address a younger crowd.

Phuket FantaSea Show on Kamala Beach

Phuket Fantasea is both a theme park and a stage performance narrating Thai myths and legends on an immense stage, with modern sound and light effects and a large number of dancers and changing sets. Once very popular among travellers, Fantasea lost a bit of its fame because elephants performing on stage became controversial since the introduction of elephant sanctuaries all over the island.
