5 Best Beaches in Phuket that you must Visit – A guide to your Beach Vacation in Phuket

Phuket is the coming together of romance, tourist attractions, beauty and adventure, not to mention delicious food. The most famous feature of Phuket, however, is its charming beaches.


Freedom Beach

This is a 10-minute boat ride away from Patong. Freedom beach is one that's known for its tranquillity. Most people come to Phuket to revel in the undisturbed beauty of Freedom Beach; this is where you can get an understanding of the old island. The beach has a peaceful atmosphere achieved by its quiet and serene shoreline. If you feel up to a bit of adventure, you can climb up the staircase found on the northern side of the beach; your reward will be the panorama of the jade-hued water and the reefs.



Kata is popular among families, and it has two parts: Kata Yai and Kata Noi. Both parts are equally charming and offer stunning views of Koh Pu; a small island found in the vicinity. Kata Yai is the perfect spot if you are in Phuket with kids. Kata Noi is more of a luxurious spot taken over by resorts. This part of the island is becoming more popular and commercialised by the day.


Patong Beach

This is the longest beach in Phuket as well as the most popular. However, Patong Beach is not the option for those looking for relaxation. The beach is the hive of activity, and there isn't a moment when it isn't crowded with tourists. An excellent spot for people watching, dining and shopping, Patong Beach is where you can treat yourself to a pedicure while munching on the finest bits of Thai cuisine. Before tourism took over the beach, Patong beach was one of tranquil and peaceful atmosphere; the soothing sound of the waves is now replaced with banging music and the rattle of Jetskis. This is the perfect spot for solo travellers; Patong Beach is where you meet like-minded people. If you are here looking for a Phuket luxury villa for sale – Phuket is home to the likes of Avadina Hills by Anantara – you can find accommodation near Patong Beach; the region is known for excellent accommodation.


Karon Beach

Located between Patong and Kata, Karon Beach is a lovely strip of golden sand contrasted with the blue ocean. This is one of the longest beaches on the island and one of the most popular. Karon Beach is the complete opposite of Patong Beach in terms of atmosphere; this particular beach offers you a calming and peaceful experience. You can also enjoy a range of water sports here. Karon Beach is lined with luxurious spas where you can treat yourself to a soul-relaxing spa treatment. Luxury resorts aren't the only option you get here; mid-range guesthouses are an option as well.


Paradise Beach

This is one beach in Phuket that makes you feel as though you've stepped into a travel magazine. Dotted with palm trees, Paradise Beach is the amalgam of the azure sea and the white sandy beach. You can try the rope swing that's there, and take photos of the picture-perfect beauty. It doesn't take any more than 10 minutes to get to Paradise Beach from Patong Beach. Compared to other beaches in Phuket, this is rather a small beach, but it is no less charming than other beaches. Adjacent clubs, restaurants and bars will keep you entertained and fed throughout the day; there's also a range of activities you can enjoy around here. Lounging, good food, sunbathing, music, fine accommodation describe your time spent at Paradise Beach.
