What are the best beach clubs in Phuket?

The beach clubs of Phuket are the perfect addition to your tropical holiday: beach and exploration during the day, sunset on a comfortable lounger with cocktails and cool music in the evening, and party with international DJs at night.

Those clubs used to pop out around the island faster than we could visit them, mostly on Surin Beach. But a few years back, the government removed many of them since land titles were not legal. Tourists and locals lamented, having lost their beloved party spots, and for a long time, only a handful of them was still open around Phuket.

With Phuket’s growing popularity, there was a clear need and potential for more beach clubs. Just as you could expect from Phuket’s very resourceful business mindset, clubs came back in better locations. Here is our list of the best!

1. Catch Beach Club

Catch Beach Club Phuket on Bang Tao Beach

Catch Beach was the first real beach club opening in Phuket many years ago, and by doing so, they triggered a veritable chain reaction all over the island. There was a growing passion for this way of spending the afternoon on the beach, followed by fun parties from sunset until late. A few years back, all the beach clubs disappeared from the island’s face, removed by the authorities. Catch beach club is now back on Bangtao beach and is as popular as ever and mostly addresses to expat crowd. They even added a Kid’s club with their playground next door, so as not to disturb the party-goers. Read more

2. Cafe Del Mar

Cafe Del Mar Beach Club in Kamala Beach Phuket

Cafe Del Mar has become one of the most popular beach clubs in Phuket, and having a branch here in Kamala Beach is almost a statement: Phuket is a party island! Cafe Del Mar, a well-known name in Ibiza, found out that Phuket was the right island for wild beach parties with good music, and great drinks. The beach club and its swimming pool are a little small, the sitting can feel crowded, and the prices are high. The music and atmosphere address a younger crowd. Read more

Coast Beach Club at Centara Grande Beach Resort Phuket

Coast Beach is the only beach club on the beach of Karon, at least for now, so it is a perfect place to enjoy a sunset cocktail with friends or even family. While it is part of the Centara Grand Beach Resort, you don’t have to be a guest of the hotel to enjoy the bar. The club is pleasant, with a good selection of day beds and large sofas in the sitting area.

Iguana Beach Bar

Temporary closed

Iguana Beach Club might be the smallest of all Phuket Beach Clubs. However, the crew put on fun parties on most weekends, and it doesn’t come as a surprise once you find out that Iguana Beach Club and the highly famous Seduction Club in Patong are somehow related. Iguana Beach Club hides between Patong and Kamala beach with a little secret cove mood to it. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy some drinks while admiring a sunset before international level DJs start spinning some serious groove. Unfortunately, Iguana Beach Club is only open during the high season, November to May.
