Ranking of the ten most beautiful beaches in Phuket
Already a map of the island to help you find them:
1 - Phuket beaches: Freedom beach in Patong
Freedom Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island with fine white sand and clear blue water.
As the crow flies, it is not far from Patong beach, but it is much quieter because it is difficult to access.
To reach it you have to take a fishing boat, which is quite expensive (about 1200 baht for a group), or take a steep path through the jungle, and as it is a private path, you will be asked to pay about 200 baht to pass.
There is a restaurant and sun beds.
2 - Banana Beach or Banana Rock Beach, Laguna
Opposite the island of Koh He, this is a beach that has long remained untouched by mass tourism, but is now increasingly popular.
Despite this, the beach remains quiet and is still very beautiful.
You will find good restaurants with lower prices than in the more touristy areas of the island.
3 - Beaches in Phuket : Kata Noy Beach in Kata
Located just south of Kata Beach, Kata Noi Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket.
Unlike its big sister, Kata Noi Beach is a little less developed and quieter.
4 - Laem Singh Beach in Surin
Laem Singh Beach was relatively unknown until recently.
Nowadays the beach is full of tourists, but you really can't blame them because it's an absolutely beautiful place and well worth a visit.
5 - Phuket beaches : Kata beach
Kata beach is one of the most popular beaches on the island, and this is normal, as it is one of the most beautiful.
This is where the Club Med was set up.
Despite all the tourist activities in and around the Kata beach is still very beautiful, lined with casuarina trees that allow those who want to take the shade.
6 - Nai Thon Beach, Laguna
Nai Thon Beach is a beautiful beach, one kilometre long.
It is part of the Sirinath National Park and has therefore been preserved from construction, unlike the other beaches on the island.
7 - Phuket Beaches: Nai Harn Beach
Nai Harn Beach, with its beautiful white sand, is never as crowded as some of the more popular tourist beaches and, as a result, offers a quieter and more relaxing atmosphere.
8 - Bang Tao Beach, Laguna
Bang Tao Beach is an eight-kilometre long beach in the north of Surin.
It is home to the Laguna complex, an area consisting of seven high-end hotels and a private golf course.
The Laguna complex occupies a large part of the centre of the beach.
This is where you might meet some of the stars...
9 - Phuket Beaches: Kamala Beach
Kamala Beach is 1 kilometre of white sandy beach, the ideal destination for families who want to stay away from Patong and its sultry life.
Kamala used to be a small Muslim fishing village and although there is still a large Muslim population, Kamala is now a bustling tourist town.
10 - Surin Beach in Surin
Surin Beach is a one kilometre long strip of golden sand that provides all the luxuries of Patong Beach without the dirty water and the huge mass of tourists.
The beach is famous for its crystal clear water.
