Phuket Beaches

Stunning shores

Palm-fringed, white sand beaches and sparkling, crystal clear waters; imagine paradise and you will see the beaches of Phuket. Framing the island, these stunning beaches are backed by green foliage, shimmering temples and colonial mansions. Keep your eye out for the elephants that come down to the water to play in the waves.

Few islands can boast such an abundance of beautiful beaches as Phuket. Winding coastal roads along the west coast are backed by verdant green foliage, offering easy access to a plethora of stunning shores; from remote stretches of palm-adorned sand to the bustling energy of the beaches around Patong. For a get-away-from-it-all feel, head to Mai Khao Beach in the northwest of Phuket, which is tranquil and calm even during the high season. Surin Beach, also known as Millionaire's Row, appeals to the luxury crowd offering high-end restaurants and wine bars while Kata Beach will charm you with its spectacular white sands and calm, clear waters.    

The chaotic, bustling resort of Patong Beach is an experience in itself. Set next to a beautiful stretch of sand, the town and beach fuse to make one thriving area that sparks with energy. The beach itself is bursting with hotels, shopping malls, bars and restaurants while the buzzing streets teem with people experiencing the vibrant nightlife. One thing we'd recommend is watching a spot of Muay Thai (Thai boxing) which can be seen at the Patong Boxing Stadium.
