A night out in Kata Beach requires you to choose from a number of options that include loud bars with thumping music as well as very simple spots to grab a drink and chat with friends. Most venues are found on Kata Road, a little way back from the beach. There are both girlie bars and family-friendly venues located here, so you can find a suitable nightlife spot whatever your style.
Rick N’Roll Music Café

The Ska Bar has amazing views that make it a great spot to watch the sunset. It’s situated on some large granite boulders and is very much a reggae spot. Staff and guests are friendly and the bar often has some great events and parties. You’ll find the Ska Bar in the southern portion of Kata Beach.
