Kai Bae Beach Nightlife – Top Bars

UPDATED for 2018-19 Season

kai bae beach nightlife koh chang

Kai Bae Beach nightlife is by no means the hub of Koh Chang, but it does have a couple of good spots in which to kick back, play some pool, sup a cocktail and maybe even strut your stuff, with our favourites below.

Northern End, Centre – Kai Bae Beach Nightlife

At the northern end, there are a cluster of bars on Walking Street, starting with Sky Bar on the top corner by the main road, @Marks, Easy Going, a bar/restaurant and the popular Yak Yak and Berlin Bar just down around the corner. The Russian owned Seafood Lighthouse sits at the other end, a curious wooden building over 2 storeys with said lighthouse (false of course) out front – they play live music most nights during the season.

Along the road in and around Chang Park Resort, you’ll find other bars, but business is obviously not too brisk as they they tend to come and go with the wind. That said, Boobz, a beer bar and Hell Sinki Bar, Finnish owned and serving food, have both now been standing firm for a few years.

As you continue down the main street, Funky Monkey Cafe has arrived in the last year to general acclaim and Wine Gallery, both a very extensively stocked off-licence and a wine bar, draws a decent crowd. You’ll also find more beer bars dotted about, with M & M Guesthouse opposite the 3 deluxe resorts of Awa, The Chill and Gajapauri, a popular haunt.

Just near here, take the road down to Coral Resort and on the right, the Swedish owned Apache Bar is another well-run bar, which also offers food and a couple of rooms. Down at the end of this street, Nang Nual Resort has a nightly cabaret show hosted by the katoeys (lady boys) and within Coral itself, Salt is a Bangkok style bistro with pool table and full bar.

Southern End – Kai Bae Beach Nightlife

For the two main Kai Bae bars, however, look no further than Mojito Lounge and Filou at the southern end. Both offer happy hours, themed nights or parties and if you drop in on either, you’ll get a decent night out. Filou also offers food.

At this end too, Sea Breeze, the bungalow operation, has a nightly live band in its raised bar on the main street.

For the football and other sports, make a beeline to Morgan by the bridge, very friendly English host, full bar and decent grub, western and Thai.

Sunset – Kai Bae Beach Nightlife

The beach does not go in for bars and restaurants as the other areas do, but the best sundowner is at Porn’s where watching the light change on the offshore islands can be very special indeed. There’s also a very keenly priced happy hour at The Chill or Salt, as above, is another nice venue with its seating by the ocean.
