Nightlife Guide for Ao Thong Nai Pan Noi and Yai

Thong Nai Pan Noi and Thon Nai Pan Yai don’t have the swinging nightlife found elsewhere on Phangan Island, but both liven up as the evening gets later and you can have a great time dancing and listening to the DJs. Ao Thong Nai Pan Noi is the livelier of the two, with more opportunities for dancing and having fun, but Thong Nai Pan Yai has its own fun in a more beach-party style.

From fire dances to late night meals, there are a few options you can check out in Thong Nai Pan Noi and Yai, but make sure it’s fairly late when you head out, because the fun doesn’t really start until well after dark.


Sand is a livelier night spot that plays fun dance music via DJ. It is located on Main Street in Thong Nai Pan Noi near several massage parlors towards the end of town. Sand also offers tattoos, so be sure to check that out if you’re interested. They open at 6:30 and stay open late, with the best of the night happening later.

Luna Lounge

Luna Lounge offers a variety of dishes, tapas, appetizers, and salads, in addition to cocktails and other drinks, including wine. A good bonus is that the bar offers free Wi-Fi, so feel free to bring your laptop. Luna Lounge is located in Noi, not far from Sand. They are also open from 6:30 p.m. until late.

Beach Bar at Havana Resort

The Beach Bar at Havana Beach Resort offers a great view of the sunset and has a perfect beachfront location. Part of the Havana Beach Resort, this bar features a big screen TV, mainly to show sporting events. They are open from 10 p.m. until late into the night.
