If plans for a lovely evening with that special someone is in the works, make a date at one of the following spots:

360 ̊ Bar & Grill

It is the perfect spot for those who like to enjoy their drinks along with plenty of sun, sand and sea. Perfect during day or night, On the Rock offers an alluring view of Karon’s golden sand and turquoise waters. Of course, the best time to arrive is during the early hours of the evening, when you can enjoy your sundowners while watching the magical sunset scenery. An extensive wine list means that you may end up downing more than a couple of drinks – why not pair them up with some excellent starters, such as butter-and-garlic mussels or a spicy tod mun pla?
