Restaurants on the beach in Phuket… and we mean really on the beach

What can be better than eating right on the beach when on holiday on such a beautiful island as Phuket, but such restaurants have become hard to find. Actually there used to be quite a lot of places where it was possible but after ‘the big cleanup’ of 2015 most restaurants and beach cub where fund to be illegally build and therefore removed.

Eating on the beach of Patong
Here is a list of places where you still can really eat on the sand (or really really close to it). Surprisingly many travelers miss those places entirely even though they probably walk nearby.

Note that restaurants come and go depending on seasons and government mood so we write this page in good faith but can’t really guarantee those restaurants will be there by the time you arrive.

A good recent example of this happened at the very popular Laem Singh Beach and no one saw it coming. This was a great place to hang with very popular restaurants in. Operation for more than 2 decades such as the famous ‘Da Ali’. One day the owner of the land closed entirely the access ti the beach and that was the end of it.


Eating on the beach of Patong

Patong Beach has a nice set of restaurants long-established restaurants really on the beach, all serving a decent Thai food and even continental breakfast at a good price. The two best known are probably Sabai corner and Chez Bernard, a restaurant opened for more than 20 years and run by a French guy who survived the 2004 tsunami. Next to these are Sole Mio which is more recent and quite successful.

Kata Noi

Kata Noi has a local hidden bar and restaurant at the end of the beach, just past ‘The Shore’ resort. It’s really modest but it has a fun local charm. (photo to come soon)


Kamala Beach

Eating on the Beach of Kamala

Kamala Beach has the most restaurants, bars and local food vendors all along the central part of the beach. Here too it is difficult to predict which will be open or closed.
At the northern end of Kamala you can enjoy dinner and tapas almost on the beach at 2 beach clubs: Cafe Del Mar and HQ Beach Club.

Freedom Beach

Eating on Freedom Beach

Freedom is a little paradise. It has everything: incredible soft white sand, amazing blue water, it’s relatively peaceful, you can eat on the sand (just look at this photo) and it’s just next to Patong Beach! There is a reason for this paradise to stay so quiet: you can only get there by longtail boat from Patong and it’s not so cheap to ride it. (there is occasionally a path from the top of the hill but it’s steep and not guaranteed to be open. And just to make things a little more complicated, it’s only open during high season, which is about November to June. Read more


Eating on the Beach of Bangtao

Catch Beach Club

Bangtao Beach used to have a lot of large dining options but most are now gone. The only real option is to dine at the Dusit Thani Resort but it of course is more expensive than your usual local beach restaurant. Alternatively you can be really close to the beach at the new Catch Beach Club or at Palm Seaside Restaurant. Read more


Haad Pra Phra Kaew Beach

Rimpan Seafood

Haad Pra Phra Kaew Beach is a tiny beach located far from everything and therefore rather unknown, even from localsexpats. It’s located just below the beginning of the Sarasin Bridge.  Read more

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world in my 20s and never stopped until I finally settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 23 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run 2 blogs: Phuket101.net and BangkokUndercover.com, I also manage 30 online travel guides in Asia and beyond, including Phuket.com, Bangkok.com and Bali-Indonesia.com
