5 Beaches not to miss in Phuket - The Forefront of Beach Vacays

What does one want on a beach holiday, but sun-kissed, palm-lined, golden beaches? Here are five top beaches in Phuket to be ticked off the must not miss list.


Patong Beach

With its wide scope of activities and vibes that thrive with life, Patong beach is the most well-known beach in Phuket. Phuket beachfront resorts, eateries and bars all have a different life as the sun sets, making Patong the ultimate spot to party. The nightlife of the area makes Patong stand apart from the rest, however, it also implies that no resort might be found for the tired explorer in these parts. Overwhelmingly active roads filled with neon lights welcome the youthful and the hyper.


Layan Beach

The Layan beach is a serene stretch of sand that is away from the hustle of visitors and crowds of jet skis and beach umbrellas that block the view of the ocean. As the beach zone is protected by a little island called Koh Kala, the waters are very quiet in Layan beach, making it a sheltered, serene place to chill at. The island of Koh Kala itself can be explored by hiring a kayak and this venture would make you feel like a pro explorer. One of many a Phuket family resort that resides in the territory, for instance, is Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas.


Kata Beach

The perfect beach is the focus here, and it is nestled between peace and party times. The long white sandy beaches and completely clear waters welcome numerous guests to Kata beach, which is a most loved family destination too. This beach has many events and parties, but it's not an overwhelming nightlife. Amazing views, incredible shopping centres and plenty of eateries to satisfy even the hungriest customer are what this beach is all about.


Kata Noi Beach

Little Kata beach is somewhat close to the Kata beach and is a little heaven with almost nothing to do other than relax and appreciate the view and landscape. This is the ideal beach to walk along the wet sands, leaving footprints only to be wiped off by waves as they touch the sand in ceaseless movements. Kata Noi gets the attention of surfers during the monsoon time of May-October, which additionally means it is an unsafe period for swimming in the waters.


Mai Khao Beach

Situated on the northwest part of Phuket, Mai Khao is the longest beach in Phuket running for 11km at a stretch. Being a part of the Sirinat National Park, the beach is for the most part perfect as it has no human imprints, making it a must visit for the privacy it offers. It is possible for you to stroll for miles on the sands of Mai Khao, which is also known to be the coarsest sand found in Phuket. Mai Khao, which means "white timber", is a beach looked for its geographical importance as it is dangerous to swim in the waters from May to November, because of its sudden drop into the Andaman Sea.
