Nightlife in Kamala Beach is pretty quiet and laidback, but there are enough quality venues to entertain mellow partygoers at night. This tranquil beach may not be the most buzzing on Phuket’s west coast, but there are several cool venues you should not miss out on.

    Some of the best nightspots in Kamala include stylish and opulent lounges in 5-star resorts, unpretentious and friendly beer bars, sports bars and pubs, as well as cool rock ‘n’ roll bars offering live music. Check out our list of Kamala's most popular places to go at night.

    Café del Mar Phuket is a classy beach club of the world-famous brand in Ibiza. With a high-quality setting and a great soundtrack of chill-out beats, it brings the sophisticated party atmosphere of its namesake to the northern end of Kamala Beach.

    Café del Mar is right next to the modern and stylish HQ Beach Lounge. You'll find a rustic beach-hut-like look, with a thatch-roofed main bar at its heart. Shaded seating on comfortable sofas is on 1 side, while cabanas and large beds occupying a patch of sand lie on the other. An impressively large swimming pool is behind the bar. Enjoy single sun loungers and more beds and cabanas around it, as well as a poolside swim-up bar.
