Freedom beach in Patong

freedom-beach-PhuketFreedom Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island with very 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 either 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 road, you will be asked about 200 baht to pass.

You will find a restaurant and deckchairs.

Banana Beach or Banana Rock Beach, Laguna

Banana Beach PhuketOpposite the island of Koh He, it is a beach that has long been protected from mass tourism but is now more and more popular.

Despite everything, the beach remains quiet and is still very beautiful.

You will find excellent restaurants with lower prices than in the more touristy areas of the island.

Kata Noy Beach

Unlike its older sister, Kata Noi Beach is a little less developed and quieter.
