Not only is Phuket Thailand’s largest island, but it is also where you’ll find the country’s most pristine beaches! Phuket’s coastline is often exquisite, perfect for a relaxing beach getaway and the warm waters that border it are ripe for an array of exciting excursions. So, if you’re ever on the island, here are the top 4 beaches that you need to visit.
Located just over a kilometre away from Avadina Hills by Anantara, which will offer you quite the spectacular Phuket luxury villa for sale, the scenic Layan Beach is well worth the visit. Fringed on one side by quaint palm trees and by azure blue waters on the other, this is the perfect destination for those who want to relax and enjoy the sun.
Perhaps the most famous strip of coastline in all of Phuket, Patong Beach is certainly not the calmest and quiet of the lot – its fame means the place is packed nearly all the time with tourists and vendors. Still, you’ll want to come here if you’re looking to try out some thrilling water sports like jet skiing and parasailing.
While not as well-known as some of the other beaches mentioned here, Karon Beach is the premier location in Phuket for sunbathing. There are long stretches of untouched coastline here matted with white sand – and being relatively unknown, there are fewer crowds here!
Kamala Beach is another quiet option if you prefer the gentle lapping of the waves to the chatter of a constant crowd. Here the water is calm and shallow making for an excellent swimming location, especially for families.
