5 Beaches Not to Miss in Phuket – Captivating Coastal Sites for the Leisure Seeker

If you visit the island of Phuket, you will have the opportunity to enjoy several outstanding beaches, such as Freedom Beach, Ao Sane Beach, Patong Beach, Mai Khao Beach and more.


Freedom Beach

You will be able to reach this beach via a brief boat ride from Patong located on Phuket's west coast. Visitors will see that the serenity of Freedom Beach contrasts greatly with the vibrant atmosphere of Patong. You will find that Freedom Beach ranks amongst Phuket's most pristine coastal locales, relatively untouched by the hand of development. In fact, this beach provides an idea of what Thailand was like before the onset of tourism. If you desire some activity, you may ascend the stairs to be found at the beach's northern side; by doing so, you will be able to experience stunning views over the waters.


Ao Sane Beach

Another great choice for the seeker of tranquillity would be Ao Sane Beach. Here, you will be able to enjoy a respite from the attentions of hawkers and the noise of jet-skis. Ao Sane Beach is also counted amongst Phuket's finest localities for snorkelling and diving. Another attraction of this beach would be its huge trees, under which you could enjoy the shade and cool off. Interestingly, this shoreline features rougher sand in comparison to other Phuket beaches and it is also rather rocky. This is easily one of the best beaches in Phuket to get away from it all.


Patong Beach

On the other hand, Patong Beach is undoubtedly the place to be for those who desire action and entertainment. Featuring a lively, animated atmosphere, this beach will be the location of choice for visitors interested in shopping, dining and people watching. Patong Beach happens to be renowned for its water activities, neon lights, nightlife and other attractions too. When here, you will have the opportunity to relax amidst the lively atmosphere in the daytime and perhaps make new friends as you party the night away!


Mai Khao Beach

The picturesque Mai Khao Beach has the distinction of being Phuket's longest beach. It is a pleasant place at which to spend relaxed leisure time as it has not been over-developed. If you visit Mai Khao Beach you will find some interesting things to do; one of these would be visiting the idyllic Sirinat National Park, while other options include observing the planes landing at the nearby airport and visiting Splash Jungle Waterpark. A Phuket family resort to consider beside a pristine stretch of shore on this beach would be Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas.


Kata Beach

Another fine choice for leisure seekers would be Kata Beach which is known for its calm beauty. You will find that it happens to be a favourite amongst families and consists of two sections. At Kata Yai, which is the bigger section located at the southern end, you will find several commercial establishments, whilst Kata Noi towards the north happens to be smaller and less developed. Both sections are stunning, offering scenic views of a little island called Koh Pu, while Kata Yai's sandy bay is a fine spot for swimming as well.
