Thailand has the deserved reputation as having the best beaches in southeast Asia. It was very hard to pick the best of them, but here is our pick:
Patong Beach, Phuket
Patong Beach is known as the most beautiful beaches of Phuket Famous well-known among tourists worldwide. Patong Beach on the west side. The center of the island. Deeply indented coastline is curved like a crescent. Nearly 3 km long white sandy beach, clean, long stretch cut out the eye with clear blue sea. Beautiful scenery like this. Patong Beach is the charm of the impression to tourists visiting.
Mu Ko Phi Phi (Phi Phi Islands)
Lamai, Koh Samui
Lamai Beach is the second most popular beach on Samui, after Chaweng, yet it doesn’t have that crowded feel, even if it’s only half the size. Lamai sits in a sweeping bay with the sands stretching almost as far as the distant Hinta-Hinyai (Grandmother and Grandfather rock formations), which are located behind a small headland. Just to the north of Lamai there’s Tong Takian Bay, with a high, rocky headland and plenty of lush jungle sweeping up into the mountains.
Once almost exclusively a base for divers, visitors are slowly realizing that Ko Tao has more to offer than just a place to eat and sleep between dives. This one mile stretch of white sandy beach with a beautiful view of small islands in the horizon is Ko Tao’s most popular, with plenty of inexpensive accommodations and restaurants. The closest airport is in Samui, so getting there involves a ferry trip and keeps the beach relatively uncrowded.
