Thavorn Beach Village & Spa Presents: “Our Top 10 Best Phuket Beaches”

Posted by Jody on November 29, 2011

Family Post by Alaina Diehl

I’ve never been to Thailand, but I did eat delicious Thai curry yesterday. I guess that doesn’t make me much of a Thai beach authority, so we’ll have to depend on the advice of the Thavorn Beach Village & Spa to know where to go to hit the fun and sun at the beaches of Phuket.

Phuket Province, Thailand (NordNordWest/Wikipedia)

Phuket, located approximately 862 kilometers south of Bangkok, is Thailand’s largest island, and it sports some of Thailand’s loveliest beaches.

1. Bangtao Beach is easy to get to by motor bike or car. There are plenty of tourist facilities and luxury resorts around this relaxing beach that was once used for tin mining.  Swimming is great during the dry season (November to April).

2. Patong Beach is considered the party capital of Phuket. During the day you can hit the sun beds and at night you can hit the bars and clubs. Crowded during the high season, you can escape to the north end of the bay or enjoy a Thai message on the beach. There are plenty water sports and activities to experience as well.

3. Karon Beach is the second largest Phuket beach. Although it is only a few steps away from luxury resort hotels, this beach isn’t as crowded as Patong Beach. This beach is kid friendly with places to snorkel and get your game on (Dino Park Mini Golf).

4. Surin Beach is known for its clear waters. Golfing, swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, and parasailing are a few activities that you can enjoy here… not to mention eating! This beach has many nearby restaurants.

5. Curving, white sand Kata Beach is pretty popular, so you will have to get there early to get a sun bed. Kids can spot fish at the south end of the beach, while adults and big kids can enjoy water activities of all kinds.

6. Freedom Beach means freedom from noise (no water sports allowed on this beach). Relax on a sun bed under a palm tree or sink your feet into the clean, white sand.

7. Paradise Beach: Soft, white sand, beautiful greenery, and clear water—enough said.

8. Kata Noi Beach is less developed than Kata Beach to the north. From this beach, you can spot the evergreen Poo Island. High waves from May to October make it dangerous for swimming, but the surfers dig it.

9. Kamala Beach has more of a family beach atmosphere.  The northern side of the beach is good for taking a dip in the tropical water.

10. Nakalay Beach belongs to the Thavorn Beach Village Resort, so, of course they recommend it! I like a good private beach, myself. This looks like a nice spot to swim, tan, and relax.

Last but not least, a safety tip: the rainy season (May to October) brings unpredictable conditions for the water. It is a good idea to heed the flag warnings on the beaches. Stay out of the water on a red flag day!

Thailand is definitely on my Asian beach to-do list. Amazing images of lush green foliage against the white sands and beautifully blue ocean definitely fit my idea of paradise.

  1. hello! =) i am at the office at the moment, thus i don’t have very much time to write… however! I truly liked reading your article. It turned out to be some really good stuff. thank you! All the best, billigt flyg thailand

  2. I have been to Thailand and it’s amazing. Some of the resorts and beaches mentioned are well known as well as some of the best spas anywhere. But like any other vacation half way across the world it can get expensive. Although you can get some great skincare treatments and some of the best facials ever for relatively cheap.

    Hi!!!!Patong is a great place to shop, you have a really cool soihppng centre called jungceylon, that has tonnes to do there and you have to see the water ship show while your there, not sure of the times but you can check when there. There are stalls and small markets everywhere selling all kinds, just remember to barter well, as they often charge 4x the price they want lol. Remember if they are not happy with a price and not going to make any money then they wont sell :pNov/Dec time is the best time to visit, and the similan islands are open, one of the best places to visit in the world, you have no excuse not to go, .. You can get a day island hopping with lunch and drinks for 2000 bht p.p. it takes a while in the bus to get to the pier, but will leave you with unforgettable memories ben there everytime i went to thailand Also there is the usual phi phi isalnd, krabi, ko lanta, coral island is good too, it has a great beach and tonnes of fish . For the perfect phuket experience, try a night camping on bamboo island, there will proberly be no one else there other than the rangers and a few fisherman . It’s expensive from phuket, but barter . and you will get a good deal Try a evening show at fantasea, it was ok but i thought it must be cruel for the elephants, and also the simon cabaret .was the 3rd time i was in phuket before i went, but really enjoyed it. Try a day trip white water rafting with the A.V. option, leaves you pretty tird, but good fun .. The fact is your options are limitless, and one time in phuket, will never be enough :p Enjoy!! i have many times
