7 most enjoyable spots in Koh Tao after sunset

Koh Tao isn’t just about sunbathing, diving, hiking, and chilling the day away. There’s plenty to enjoy on the island when the sun dips into the horizon and the evening sets in. Get ready to party.

Good Vibe Bar

True to its name, this lively spot promises nothing but good vibes, thanks to live music, open mic sessions, and lots of booze. Both locals and tourists come here to wind down after a long day in the sun or to casually hang out in groups. The band plays a range of music, from jazz to reggae to pop, and everyone is welcome to come up, grab the microphone, and jam along.

Maya Beach Club

A mainstay on Sairee Beach, this club is known for blaring out tunes the whole day, from low-key beach tracks in the afternoon to harder dance tunes at night.

Watch the island’s most popular drag queens ham it up—and maybe even find yourself pulled into the fun onstage. The shows are never the same each night, so there’s always a reason to go back.
