There is a Full Moon Party in Phuket? Maybe you didn’t even know about it but yes, there is actually a Phuket Full Moon Party and it has been around for a while now on Paradise Beach. It’s a lot smaller than the notorious Koh Phangan Party and not free, but it is definitely growing in popularity because of its easy access and great music.
The entrance costs 1,000 baht and comes with a ‘Premium Bucket’ or 2 Chang beers (you know what a bucket is, right?). One the plus side, it is really close to Patong Beach and there is an all day/all night free transfer from and to Patong by bus, so you don’t have to plan long in advance: you can just get there when it happens.
The party area and dance floor are on the beautiful Paradise Beach, which already very popular during the day for its beach club atmosphere, so you can just jump in the sea when you get too hot or tired of dancing. The Phuket Full Moon Party is organized and designed with a great sound system and lighting by the famous Illuzion Night Club on Bangla road. All around the party zone you can take a break at the bar and even a bite at the restaurant.
Being in a remote isolated bay, the party is not invasive and visitors to Phuket who are not fans of Full Moon parties will not be disturbed by loud music of people a little too enthusiastic to party and drink a little too much. The shuttle comes and go regularly so once you are done for the night, no worries to reach your hotel, and definitely no driving!
Expect international DJs and an unforgettable night under the full moon until very late! (and no, this story is not sponsored in any way, we just thought some readers wanted to know about it!)
Shuttle to Paradise Beach: Look for the yellow truck at Jungceylon mall, it’s free and every 30 mn. (see map)
