Freedom Reggae Bar Phuket
I first traveled to Phuket – Thailand in 2009. And fell in love with the whole island experience. We stayed with friends and they were super hosts and tour guides. Part of our routine was a sunset beer at the Freedom Reggae Bar in Phuket. Mostly, this was due to the magnificent views. Quickly, this bar became an easy favourite.
The bar sits on the top of a hill. Bar style seating lines the edge of the cliff and is the prized sunset viewing spot. The expansive seascape view is gorgeous! If you enjoy a reggae beat, plenty of good ole reggae tunes play in the background. This adds to the super chill vibe. If you enjoy a snack with your beer, there’s the typical deep fried bar food available, and some healthy choices like a fresh coconut and a range of salads. Something for everyone. What’s not to love about this bar?

Getting my explore on. Next to the bar is a leather goods shop which stocks a variety of hand crafted belts and handbags. If you want to support local craft this shop is a good place to spend a bit.
The photos in this post include black and white portraits of the bar staff. These portraits were taken with their permission. Amongst the portraits is the owner of the leather shop [the guy with dreadlocks]. I photographed elements of the bar’s decor too. In particular, I liked the portrait of Jimi Hendrix nestled beside a water buffalo skull installation.
