Well-known for its sea views and smoothie bowls, SUMMER by Coco Tam's is a favourite with both tourists from other parts of Thailand and abroad. They serve food and coffee during the day, with the place transforming into a beach bar in the evening.
The place is so popular that even though I arrived in the afternoon, hoping to get a taste of their smoothie bowls, I only managed to get a table in the evening. By that time, only the bar menu was available, but the good thing is, I got to catch the sunset from their comfy beanbags right at the waterfront!
While waiting for the sun to set, I enjoyed my cocktails with a side of French fries that came with a special house sauce – I just had to order it as I saw a serving on almost every table! The drinks menu is quite extensive, so if cocktails aren't your thing, there's definitely something else you can enjoy.
Enjoying the sea breeze at the waterfront while the sun goes down is really an unforgettable experience. And if you look out to the sea, you will even be able to see Koh Phangan across the water!
If you thought the place looks nice in the day, it looks even more magical at night. That's when the string lights come on and the entire restaurant is awash in a warm glow.
Don't forget to look out for the fire show if you're there in the evening!
