Partying at Khao Lak beach bars is a must-do while you’re here, and you’ll find several decent spots to try out. There are plenty of bars selling beers, buckets and cocktails late into the night.
The main place to be is Nang Thong Beach, with a number of bars both on the beach and off in the jungle. You’ll find live music and DJs playing past midnight, and it’s a really close, intimate beach vibe where you’ll likely be mingling with travellers and bar owners alike. Further north, there are other spots like Memories Bar on Khuk Khak, which specialises in late-night parties, or Bang Niang further south for a quieter social scene.
