What to do in Phuket, the 10 activities not to be missed
First, a map of the island to help you find them:
Freedom beach in Patong
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
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.
Laem Singh Beach
Nowadays, the beach is full of tourists, but you really can’t blame them because it’s a beautiful place that deserves a visit.
That’s where Club Med settled.
Despite all the tourist activities in and around, Kata beach is still lovely, lined with casuarina trees that allow those who want to get in the shade.
Nai Thon Beach, Laguna
It is part of Sirinath National Park and has been preserved from construction, unlike other beaches on the island.
Nai Harn Beach
Bang Tao Beach, Laguna
It houses 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 center of the beach.
Maybe that’s where you’ll meet some stars…
Before Kamala was a small Muslim fishing village and although there is still a large Muslim population, now Kamala is a lively little town with a high level of tourism.
The beach is famous for its crystal clear water.
