The following are 3 beaches that you should consider visit when you are in Thailand.
Patong Beach, Phuket
This beach is the largest beach on the Island of Phuket and is also the country’s most popular beach. You can walk up and down the wide coastline while enjoying the view and getting the soft white sand between your toes. If you feel like going for a nice meal there are plenty of restaurants that you can choose from and if shopping is your thing you will certainly find what you’re looking for. There are many things for everyone to do and you definitely won’t get bored. Patong has a great nightlife so you can continue the days adventures into the night!
Hua Hin Beach, Hua Hin
This beach is popular by both the locals and international visitors. Why? It is because of the flat stretches of beach, the many things you can do and the ease of travel from Bangkok. This beach is not a place for real swimming as it slopes very gently into the gulf, but this doesn’t stop it being very popular with families. The surrounding town is full with hotels, resorts, guest houses, places to shop and places to eat and drink making it a great place to stay.
Kata Beach, Phuket
Another popular beach in Phuket! Just a couple of miles away from the hustle and bustle of Patong beach. While Patong is a busy beach and is full of tourism this beach that is close by is more relaxed. The beach is full of palm trees making it a secluded place to relax. You can walk on the soft sand while feeling the warm water on your feet. If you prefer to relax you can do so while taking in the beautiful scenery. During the low season the waves on this beach can be intense making it unsafe for children, but is the perfect spot for surfers or those interested in water sports.
While it is very hard to pin point the best beaches in a large place that is full of beaches the above 3 are very popular amongst locals and tourists. Thailand has so many beaches on offer to suit everyone’s requirements. Whether you have a family or you are interested in water sports there is a beach for you. You will never be bored when you are looking for things to at any of the beaches because if you cannot not find anything else to do you can always relax while taking in the beautiful scenery!
