Best Time To Travel

For ideal weather, visit Thailand during the dry season, which for most of the country kicks off in November and lasts through March or even into April and May. (A major exception is the Lower Gulf — home to the island paradises of Ko Samui, Ko Phangan, and Ko Tao — which is rainiest from October through December.)

Instead of shopping highlights, we've completed a beach guide for Phuket. With over 30 beaches peppering Phuket's breathtaking coast, you won't have to worry about being stuck somewhere you don't like. Whether you're looking for a boisterous and entertaining spot, a high-end luxury experience, or a secluded seaside escape, Phuket's beaches offer a bit of everything.

Freedom Beach - A short, 10-minute ride in a long-tail boat will take you from the hustle and bustle of Patong (on the west coast) to the heart of tranquility at Freedom Beach. One of the cleanest beaches in Phuket, this hidden masterpiece is the reason you came to Thailand in the first place–to marvel at its picturesque, virtually untouched beauty.

Kata Beach - A family favorite, Kata beach is as calm as it is beautiful. It's divided into two parts: Kata Noi (the smaller, less populated of the two in the north) and Kata Yai (the larger section at the south end, where you'll find family hotels). Both are spectacular and offer picturesque views of the small island, Koh Pu, which is best photographed during sunset.

Ao Sane beach - is reached by driving or walking through the Nai Harn hotel on Nai Harn Beach. Ao Sane is also one of its best "secrets." This beach is where you'll find the meaning of true tranquility - no local hawkers, beach umbrella hire nor motorised watersports. The sand at Ao Sane is rougher than it is on other beaches in Phuket. This idyllic spot does, however, rate as one of the best places to snorkel and dive on the island. Plus, it's lined by giant trees, which provide much-needed shade to help you cool off.

Tip: Don't forget to bring everything with you, as there's nowhere to purchase or rent it along the beach. That includes a snorkel and mask if you're planning on getting up close and personal with the thriving reef.

Patong Beach - Is the longest and also its most popular. If you're looking for a soulful or relaxing experience, this isn't the beach for you. Great for people-watching, shopping, and dining, this bustling beach is the place to see and be seen.

Traveling alone? Patong beach is the perfect place for you: lounge on soft sand during the day and meet new friends in a lively Thai disco at night...

Tip: Break up your sun with a trip to Phuket Town, a 30-minute drive inland from the beach. Here, you'll find a fun mix of brightly colored shops, markets, and heritage buildings to help add a bit of culture to your trip.

Karon Beach is long, wide, and lovely. Located between Patong (north) and Kata (south), it's the third longest beach on the island and one of the most popular. Karon beach boasts the typical soft, golden sand made famous by this region.

Paradise Beach - is akin to stepping into the pages of a travel magazine. The glossy, azure sea laps an impressively clean shore while giant palm trees lean and sway in the background. A rope swing glides gently with the breeze. It's literally like living in a postcard. Less than 10 minutes from  Patong Beach, Paradise offers visitors a more laid-back environment. Just 100 meters from shore is a coral reef teeming with life. This spot is a snorkeler's dream come true.

Bonus: Paradise Beach Club offers restaurants, shops, and activities to keep you entertained and fed. Be prepared to pay a small fee to enter in exchange for comfortable lounge chairs and service while many stay to attend its party environment at night.

Tip: Wear water shoes. The ocean floor is peppered with sharp pieces of rock and coral.

Bang Tao Beach - remains relatively quiet and quite clean. Stretching more than six kilometers, this golden shore is the second longest beach on Phuket. It sits almost halfway between Phuket International Airport and Patong. A short walk away is the small village of Cherng Talay a locale that services the luxury resorts. 

Nai Harn - became a popular destination featuring soft sand, shallow waters, and incredibly clear blue surf. Services right off the sand include small shops lining the shore.

Tip: Don't miss the small Buddhist temple just off the shore.

Surin Beach - Nowadays, people come for peace, raw beauty, calm and translucent water. A high-end crowd, local and visiting celebrities tend to flock to this beach, many staying at nearby high-end resorts. With these come top-of-the-line spas, which are definitely worth a visit. 

Nai Thon Beach - Phuket's West Coast is home to another hidden gem that is perfect for a romantic interlude. It's small (only one kilometer in length) and quiet enough that you can nap undisturbed on the soft, sandy shore. The wide strip of sand makes it easy to find a spot to lounge and the tall trees backing the beach provide plenty of shade for those looking for a break from the sun. Rent a beach chair or umbrella while you're there. Set in Sirinat National Park, this elysian beach is technically split into two beaches: Hat Nai Thon Yai and Hat Nai Thon Noi. Both sections lie on an inlet in the village of Nai Thon.
