Koh Tao offers a wide range of nocturnal activities perfect to celebrate finishing your Open Water course. Sairee beach is the heart of Koh Tao's nightlife. There are about 5 beach bars along Sairee beach, including Big Blue's Beach Bar. These 5 bars are all located right on the waters edge and are the perfect place to grab a cocktail or post-dive beer and watch the sun go down. Sairee beach faces west and has magnificent sunsets year-round. About 10pm most of these bars close up, and anyone looking to stay out later can head down the beach a bit further. Theres a variety of late night clubs which stay open late, some even until the sun comes up. Fortunately, they're far enough down the beach that you can come back and get a quiet night's sleep once you've had your fill.
Once a month, a resort on Koh Tao hosts the hilltop party. If you're in to a really long, steep hike, and then partying with a few hundred people in a clearing on the top of a mountain, then this is for you.
Theres also several pool halls on the island with quality regulation pool and snooker tables.
