Koh Mak nightlife is not going to set too many pulses racing, it’s not that kind of island, but there are a couple of places where you can kick back, have a cocktail and a natter, listen to some music and meet fellow travellers.
In 2016, there is a definite Koh Mak trend for bar restaurants which offer live music. Spots such as Moon Bar and Art House have sprung up in the last few months alongside the The Pirates Bar, another new venue opening in December 2015.
On the major holidays, there will be the odd party on the beach and once a year, normally in March, the island does host a German group of revellers for 10 days or so, who bring their own sound systems and dj’s, setting up shop in a different venue each night.
