Nightlife in White Sand Beach is probably the most happening of all the beaches on Koh Chang. Popular beach bars like Oodie’s Place and Sabay Bar offer lively nightlife and great live music. These places tend to get packed at weekends and during the long holidays, so if you have an aversion to big crowds, it’s best to avoid them.
Towards the southern end of the road, just before going up the hill to Klong Prao Beach, there is a small cluster of beer bars known as ‘Little Pattaya’. Expect formulaic bar with stools, a pool table and a game of Connect Four, and, of course, girls. There is also an Irish pub just up the hill, where imported beers like Guinness and Kilkenny are available.
Strewn both sides of the main road and the beach in White Sand Beach area are a multitude of bustling night entertainment hangouts. From laid-back cafés serving drinks and light snakcs, chilled-out pubs with live music and big screen TV, fun (and sometimes wild) beach bars to risqué beer bars, whatever tickles you fancy and defines your idea of a great night out, just take a walk along the beach and you’re bound to find it! Among the most popular (and most packed during the weekends and long holidays) are 15 Palms, Sabay Bar and Oodie’s Place, to mention but a few.
A great place to sit, sip a drink and just chill out on the beach. The bar also features exciting fire shows and cheap cocktails.
The Milky Bar
Test your singing ability at the Milky Bar, a karaoke bar featuring big TV screens in private VIP rooms. Pool table is also available if singing is not your strong suit.
Undoubtedly the most popular bar on this beach, Sabay Bar features the seating area right on the beach as well as an air-conditioned club section, where a live Filipino band plays all your favourite hits. Spectacular fire shows are staged nightly. The bar is busy almost everyday of the week, and can get suffocatingly packed on weekends.
