Ride a colourful tuk-tuk to Patong beach and party the night away or soak in the sights and sounds and get a massage at one of the many shops along the street.
Visit Nai Harn Beach
This is a pristine beach with fewer people and a great place to relax. On the way to Nai harn is the Kata-Karon viewpoint and makes for a great pitstop at sunset. You could also take the boats out to small islands near Nai Harn for a bit of snorkelling or diving.
