Phuket Beaches
Patong Beach - click here for more info!
Patong Beach is widely known among Thais and foreigners because of two important factors. One is its natural beauty -- the white sandy beach, plentiful sunshine, clear turquoise sea, fantastic underwater life and soft breezes. The other factor is the availability of a wide range of man-made facilities. Here you have a big choice of accommodation from luxury hotels to cottages, a host of restaurants and shops, all kinds of aqua-sports and night time entertainment.

Kata Beach - click here for more info!
Composed of 2 lovely beaches called Kata Yai (Big Kata) and Kata Noi (Small Kata) - separated from each other by a small headland. Kata Beach is a thriving resort, suitable for holiday makers who look for tranquil surroundings with a bright sun, white sand, a calm clear sea and a colourful underwater world. At the north end of Kata Beach lies a small coral reef for off-shore snorkelling.

Karon Beach - click here for more info!
Just across a low hill to the north of Kata, the long white beach of Karon stretches magnificently with pines and palms standing tall over the rolling sand-dunes providing a unique scene. It is flourishing side by side with Kata Beach, but is more placid. The sea water here is clean and the sand is powdery. It is one of the best places for swimming, diving and sunbathing. You can come from Kata to Karon easily by road or by a path along the coast.

Kamala Beach - click here for more info!
It is just 6 km. north of Patong. Probably because most of the villagers here are Muslim, Kamala Beach is the only major beach in Phuket that does not have extensive hotel development and thus is still much peaceful. However, the beach has a highlight at "Phuket FantaSea", the cultural theme park offering a dinner buffet with an extravagant show.

Bang Tao Beach - click here for more info!
Bang Tao is beautiful wide beach of fine sand that up until the mid 1980s was a virtual moonscape due to past tin mining activity. Much of the area has now been converted into the lush tropical lovely lagoon-dotted grounds of the 5-resort complex of Laguna Phuket - a stunning ecological feat.

Laem Singh Beach - click here for more info!
About one kilometre from Kamala Beach is Laem Sing (Sing Cape) which is a small white beach with a scenic rocky cape on the left. This lovely small, almost hidden gem of a beach just south of Surin is accessible only by walking down a fairly steep path from the road. You need to get there early as it can get busy, especially in the high season. A few rustic restaurants offer cold drinks and food. A pretty, quiet place to wile away an afternoon.

Surin Beach - click here for more info!
This beach, bordered by a hillside with a nine-hole golf course, is a good place to see the golden sunset of Phuket. But one should not have a swim here because the beach has a steep slope which causes strong tides and waves, especially during the monsoon season.

Pansea Beach - click here for more info!
Pansea is a tiny cove of glittering white sand, but is only accessible to the rich and famous guests of The Chedi and Amanpuri Resorts.

Nai Thon Beach - click here for more info!
This has to be one of Phuket's best kept secrets. Approaching this quiet beach of silky white sand is spectacular in itself. A drive on the coastal road from the south takes you through forested hills while the northern approach winds through a lovely valley and small village. Once you arrive, swim, sunbathe and marvel at how few people have discovered this little piece of paradise.

Nai Yang Beach - click here for more info!
The casuarina-fringed Nai Yang, together with Mai Khao in the north, forms the longest and most secluded stretch of beach in Phuket, about 10-km altogether. Two hotels sit on the south end of Nai Yang, while the north enters into Sirinath National Park, a protected marine and coastal area. A good spot to rent a beach chair or gorge on barbecued seafood while lounging on mats spread out in the shade.

Mai Khao Beach - click here for more info!
An endless stretch of fine sand; the only real getaway on the west coast of Phuket. Aside from the JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa the area is largely undeveloped with only a few bungalow operations and a campground on the beach. Take a stroll and watch the crabs scuttle, swing on a hammock under the trees or enjoy a refreshing swim.

Nai Harn Beach - click here for more info!
Naihan is a place for those who love peace and quiet. Its most picturesque landscape can be seen on the way from the north of Phromthep Cape down to the beach. But it is not advisable to go for a swim here during the monsoon season (from May to October).

Ao Sane Beach - click here for more info!
A little beach reached via a dirt road that runs through the car park of Le Meridien Phuket Yacht Club Nai Harn . Sometimes called "Jungle Beach". Usually a quiet and peaceful place, with decent coral outcroppings off its mostly rocky shore. Just one very inobtrusive resort here, the Baan Krating.

Ya Nui Beach - click here for more info!
A little sandy beach found between Nai Harn and Laem Promthep, with some fairly good snorkelling. Also a launch point for divers. Getting busier in recent years and now lined with beach chairs for rent, but it's still quite relaxed here. There's one small, informal restaurant with friendly staff - a nice place to stop in for a cool drink.

Rawai Beach - click here for more info!
Located to the south of the island, Rawai is the first beach that brought fame to Phuket Island. The coconut-fringed route from the Chalong Intersection to Rawai is one of the most beautiful roads in Phuket.It is a good beach area where sea-people reside and where several restaurants provide different styles of delicious foods, especially seafood.

Chalong Bay - click here for more info!
Being the main gateway to the south coast of the island and main pier for travelling to all the islets off the east coast of Phuket, Chalong Bay is in the mining area and is too muddy to swim in. However, a fine view of the coconut palm groves and delicious seafood in restaurants on the shore attract hundreds of visitors to the place daily.

Cape Panwa - click here for more info!
The lovely Cape Panwa, just south of the busy Phuket Town, remains a peaceful, unspoiled gem of a place. Its lush hills, sandy coves, mangroves and tidal flats offer a quiet place to explore away from the crowds. cape panwa phuket
