The best bars in Phi Phi Island are spread equally over Koh Phi Phi Don's 3 main neighborhoods: Tonsai Village (the main urban center), Tonsai East, and Loh Dalum Bay. Most bars go for 1 of 2 contrasting approaches – a laidback vibe or a pumping party atmosphere. However, some bars, as you'll see below, succeed in wrapping both ambiences up in 1 venue.

    A quiet night out in Phi Phi is usually spent on the cushions of a bamboo-and-thatch bar set right on the beach with unobtrusive music and a few beers. Those who prefer their nights loud can enjoy pumping music, dance floors on the sand, and a plentiful supply of bucket cocktails (potent spirits with energy beverages). There really is an option for everyone on our list of the best places to go at night in Phi Phi.

    Phi Phi Reggae Bar is one of the longest-established night spots in Tonsai Village. Located right between Tonsai and Loh Dalum bays, it's a large venue with loud music, sports events shown on a sizeable screen, 5 bars fronted by friendly bartenders, pool tables, and even a Thai boxing ring.

    Muay Thai is the main attraction at Phi Phi Reggae Bar. You can catch a show every night – inebriated spectators are often invited to fight in the ring (in exchange for a few more beverages).
