Being surrounded by numerous beaches, it would be a shame to not party at a few beach clubs in Phuket, especially if you’re on an extended vacation. Phuket’s beach clubs are a great place not only to watch the sun go down, but also to unwind at the end of your vacation day with other people who just want to have some drinks and chat the night away. Of course, if you’d prefer, you can also dance the night away to burn those cocktail calories! Here are some popular and worth-visiting beach clubs on Phuket Island.

Paradise Beach Club

If you’re looking for a happening spot on the beach but away from the usual drinking holes in Soi Bangla, Paradise Beach Club is the place to go. This upscale but not overly expensive beach club is just a short distance away from Patong, located on Paradise Beach. The club offers a variety of shops and activities, and if you’re looking to experience Thailand’s much famed full moon parties, this is one of the only places you can enjoy the event in Phuket.

Cafe Del Mar

For those who have experience partying it up at Ibiza, Cafe Del Mar may sound vaguely familiar. The beach club on Kamala Beach, Phuket is actually set up by the original people who run Cafe Del Mar in Ibiza, so you can expect a somewhat similar vibe here. This beach club is more upscale and caters mainly to a younger crowd, but it’s certainly worth the experience if you want a posh beach club experience with great music and drinks.

Xana Beach Club

Xana Beach Club is a good option for those who want the beach club experience but without the hardcore partying. With a much chiller vibe, this club located at Bang Tao Beach can be visited any time of day to simply enjoy some drinks and engage in conversation with your trip buddies. There’s even a swimming pool on-site where you can chill on an inflatable water bed or just swim around in. Definitely a beach club worth coming early to in order to fully enjoy the facilities (including the comfortable sofas to watch the sunsets in).

COAST Beach Club & Bistro

For food lovers who want fine dining cuisine with their alcoholic beverages, the COAST Beach Club & Bistro at Karon Beach, Phuket can be considered. Rocking a casual vibe but offering a plethora of international and local dishes to tickle even refined palates, this Phuket beach club is worth a visit if you find yourself in the Karon Beach area, between Patong Beach and Kata Beach. On certain evenings, you’d also find yourself treated to live music and DJ sets, which you might want to stick around for.

Catch Beach Club

Said to be the first beach club to open in Phuket, Catch Beach Club is actually a great family-friendly option if you come in the daytime. They have a Catch Junior option in the location where you can leave your kids to enjoy various entertaining activities while you lounge around at the onsite pool. Come nighttime though, Catch Beach Club on Bang Tao Beach comes alive for the party crowd with various house and guest DJs playing great tunes so you can put on your dancing tunes and enjoy
