About The Bangtao Beach Bar And Cafe

Our Bangtao Beach bar & café is located by the beach in-between Bangtao Village, Cherngtalay, and Laguna beach on the island of Phuket.

Although we are a small venue we offer a big café, pub and restaurant style atmosphere, all mixed with great chillout, Country and acoustic sounds, local Asian food & snacks menu, cocktails, cool beers and healthy juices, smoothies and Vegan shakes (Using with hemp hearts or Almonds) made with probiotic ‘Water Kefir’ and fresh fruit to boost your health and immune system.

If you are wondering about the name ‘La QingTing’, which is on our logo, it’s derived from a play on words for ‘The Dragon Fly‘. In French (La = The) and in Chinese (QingTing = Dragon Fly).

History of Bangtao beach

The Bangtao Beach bar & café (or Bang Thao – Bang Tao) is right on 6 kilometres of sandy beaches, which is one of Phuket’s longest beaches. The Bangtao area was once used for tin mining, but has since been developed into a luxury resort area (Laguna) to the north of Bangtao, and quieter in the southern end of the beach.

Bang Tao beach is backed by a forest of pine-like Casaurina trees, not coconut palms, and most of the hotels are almost invisible among the trees. There are no high-rise buildings, and the beach looks quite natural considering the number of hotels here. There is no road running the full length of this beach, but there is a small village to the back of the Southern area with shops, restaurants, ATMs and various services.

Like all West coast beaches on Phuket, Bang Tao has fine sand and clear, warm water. The beach has a more slope than most, bringing deeper water in close. Excellent for swimming and relaxing around the bar due to we are located right on the sand, and only footprints away from the ocean.
