Beers and booze are best consumed at these places: Baywatch Bar (tel. 081654-1096) on Ao Wong Deuan, has strong cocktails and a raucous crowd that’s a mix of locals and visitors. Naga Bar (Ao Whong Deuan beach) is run by some fun-loving locals who can even arrange for fire-twirling lessons. If you'd rather watch the show than fling flames yourself, head to Ploy Talay Restaurant (tel. 03864-4212) for an ice-cold Singha and some music. Take your patience, though, as service can be slow.
