1. Coco Tam’s
Where is it? Koh Samui
What is it? An open-air beach bar where cocktails flow and fire dancers light up the shore.
Why go? With chilled island vibes and a picturesque seaside setting, Coco Tam’s is the coolest patch of sand to spend an evening on Koh Samui, the tiny palm-fringed isle in the Gulf of Thailand. Plant yourself on a cabana, beanbag or hammock, or stay close to the action on their swinging bar seats. The cocktail list is endless and bar snacks range from Bangkok’s famed Peppina pizza to contemporary seafood dishes. Don’t miss the dazzling fire dancers who set the shore ablaze with twirling lights every night from 9.30pm.
