Cool, open air bar on the beach. A great place to end a long day. We have returned there many times while holidaying in Phuket.

Everybody in the know comes to this bar on Kata Beach. Great cocktails , beer and reasonable prices for Phuket. Really nice setting on the beach , great atmosphere and very popular for sundowners at 17.00 hrs. You can quite happily sit here and watch the world go by. Perfect !!!!!!

First timers in Phuket, visited the Ska Bar as it was just up the beach from our hotel.
We visited on a week night during low season, so yes it was quiet, but its a place that you can appreciate when you have it nearly to yourself, and can only imagine the fun there when its busy.

Its positioned beneath, and around a huge byann tree, prayer flags in the branches and lanterns, lights are dimmed, regge, and ever famous 90s music playing - all the classics, the tables & bench seats scattered and somehow fitting amongst the structure like its a part of the tree.
The bar sits right on the water front, at high tide the water comes in beneath the bar, at sunset would be the perfect time to enjoy a few drinks here.

The staff are super friendly, relaxed and helpful, when here it feels like you could almost be at a friends place enjoying a few drinks. They are really welcoming and add to the experience.

Fire twirling happens here too, although we missed it when we attended, another thing which would have been great to see.

If staying at or near Kata Beach, the Ska Bar is most certainly worth at the very least a short visit, one drink, you wont regret it. In fact the time my partner and I spent at the Ska Bar are some of the most memorable times whilst in Phuket, will certainly be back for a drink and sunset in the future, thanks guys.

I absolutely love the laid back, hippie feel of Ska Bar compared to the other bars on Kata Beach. It is situated right at the end of the beach of Kata Beach and is worth the walk! Best views, reggae music playing and has the best vibe! I will definitely come back here for a beer or two!
