5 Best Beaches in Thailand

December 7, 2011 by

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:

Best Beaches in Thailand

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)

Regarded by travelers from all walks of life as being among the most beautiful tropical islands of the world, Phi Phi Islands have become one of the most popular tourist attractions in Thailand. In addition, the islands are famous as the location where the movie “The Beach” featuring Leonardo Di Caprio was shot. The islands, together with the nearby Noppharat Thara Beach, a total area of 390 square kilometers, were recently established as a national park. Phi Phi Islands are located just 40 kilometers away from both Krabi and Phuket.

Koh Samui

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.


Koh Tao

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.

Koh Mun Nork
Looking for a real paradise desert island in Thailand? Koh Mun Nork, a tiny island in the Gulf of Siam with one small resort and a beautiful beach, might just be one of the only places in the country where you’ll feel total peace and tranquility. The island is only accessible by private boat organized by the owners of the Mun Nork Island Resort. Lounging salas and hammocks dot the beach and the resort itself has only a couple dozen villas, so even when it’s book solid, there’s never a crowd.

    The 1st picture is definitely not of Patong but of a much smaller and cleaner beach and the 3rd is not of Lamai beach but rather of Koh Phi Phi
