Bang Tao Beach Guide – Phuket


Phuket Map

Bang Tao Beach is a popular 8km stretch of white sandy beach north of Patong and between Kamala and Nai Thon beaches.

The uniqueness of Bang Tao is a series of pretty man-made lagoons converted from nineteenth century tin mining quarries. Today the 5 star Laguna complex has developed various resorts and golf courses around the lagoons and near the beach.

There are a lot of upmarket and luxury hotels located around Bang Tao, creating a distinctive yet low-key nightlife. The Laguna – a complex of six upmarket hotels linked by a land and water shuttle service – is fully self-contained with restaurants, bars, entertainment and leisure activities both by day and night. It’s all there. If you feel the need to get a more local view, there are lots of bars and small restaurants in the area that provide great food at very reasonable prices.
