Most Popular Beaches in Phuket
There is nothing quite as enjoyable as a day at the beach. This is especially the case when it is at a destination famous for its stunning landscape and multitude of other attractions like scuba diving and snorkelling. Phuket is home to some of the most pristine shorelines the world over. With over 30 beaches, there is no shortage of locations one can visit to enjoy either a fun-filled time or simply relax on the sands.
Trisara is located on this stunning island, and here we consider some of the most popular and out-of-the-way Phuket beach spots that are our guests can enjoy.
Located along the west coast of Phuket, Kata Beach is one of the larger beaches in the region with about 1.5 km of shoreline. It is a popular choice for locals and tourist families that require more legroom for everyone wanting to sunbathe on its white sands. Its palm tree-lined shore makes for great cover when people want to eat and drink while enjoying the views. The beach has excellent access to a variety of amenities thanks to the many shops and eateries that are run along the beach. Travellers can opt to stay at one of the several resorts here which provide easy access to this not so busy beach.
Just a 10-minute boat ride from Patong, this hidden gem of a destination is one of the most picturesque thanks to its jade coloured waters and immaculate sands. It is an unspoiled paradise that though not easy to get to, offers one a throwback to a time before Thailand became a top tourist destination. Freedom beach is also one of the cleanest beaches you will find in Phuket, with just one delectable restaurant at the south end.
Nai Thon Beach
A visit to Nai Thon is made all the more delightful by the route followed. The winding drive to this secluded destination will take you through virgin rainforests that lead to the soft white sands of the beach. During the high season, it is a great place to try out some diving or take a boating trip to explore rocky coves in the area. Those looking for a more private experience may want to travel a few minutes southward to Trisara Beach. Accessible only to guests of the resort or diners of its top restaurants, it is the perfect spot for some easy relaxation and pampering.
Located north of Patong, this is another popular choice for tourists looking for a calmer experience. The bay is overseen by forested hills that make for natural scenic beauty whichever direction you look. The calm shallow waters make it a good option for families, with water activities more easily available during high season. It is bordered by a variety of restaurants ranging from the high-end to budget-friendly. It is also considered one of the cleanest beaches in the province, possibly thanks to its lighter traffic as compared to the livelier Patong beach. Guests of Trisara looking to mingle with locals and other tourists here are just a 30-minute drive from this location.
This naturally blessed shoreline offers pristine white sands on which to frolic and stunning turquoise depths to surf and explore. The waters here are deeper than most other beaches, making it ideal for fans of scuba diving and snorkelling. Surfing and kayaking activities are also popular but care should be taken as the tides can sometimes get a bit rough. The area has plenty of high-end resorts and hotels with a museum, temple, park, and green market in close proximity.
