Phuket’s nightlife has something of a notorious reputation of being just for boys, particularly in Patong. To a certain extent, that reputation is deserved but that doesn’t mean girls have nothing to do at night. Some of the island's best nightclubs and beach clubs maintain a safe and friendly environment, plus there are classier alternatives for those looking for a sophisticated evening in Phuket.

    Our list of the best places for girls to party in Phuket covers a variety of nightlife offerings, whether you like to party hard or want to take it easy. Many of these venues also have special 'Ladies Night' promos, which you can usually find on their Facebook pages. Each choice is far from the seedy image that's all-too-often the first image in your mind when you think of Phuket’s nightlife, so that you can enjoy a fun and safe night out with the girls.

    Paradise Beach Club

    Paradise Beach

    Paradise Beach Club is one of the only beach clubs in Phuket where partying takes place right on the sand. It has a similar atmosphere to clubs and parties in Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, and even holds its own full, half and black moon parties. While being fairly close to Patong, the beach club is far enough away that only serious partiers tend to make their way there, creating a fun and friendly feel.
