Phuket’s Best Beaches


Phuket MapPhuket’s coastline and islands has produced miles and miles of glorious beaches. From the developed, tourist mecca of Patong to the laid-back islands of Koh Phi Phi or Koh Lanta, you can be as busy or as lazy as you want, lounging around in turquoise waters before heading off to a beachside bar for a drink. Absolutely perfect!

Phuket is the biggest island in Thailand, located in the Andaman Sea 860 kilometres south of Bangkok. The island is mostly mountainous with a mountain range in the west of the island from the north to the south. Connected to Phang-nga province (mainland Thailand) by a bridge, Phuket enjoys excellent connections acting as a hub for travel to all the Andaman Sea islands & beaches.

Here’s our list of Phuket’s best beaches:

  • Bang Tao – north of Patong, Bang Tao has a soft white sand beach
  • Kamala Beach – a quieter beach to the north of Patong
  • Karon Beach – the second most developed beach after Patong
  • Kata Beach – a clean, but busy tourist beach with good surf
  • Laem Sing Beach – a small bay with stunning views, between Kamala and Surin Beach
  • Nai Harn – a quiet beach (perhaps the best) in the south, near Phromthep Cape
  • Patong Beach – the largest beach resort, known for its nightlife and shopping
