Phuket, one of the most beautiful tropical islands in Southeast Asia, is an island province of Thailand. Known for its breathtaking natural beauty, stunning coastal features and remnants of its colonial era, Phuket is one of Thailand’s most popular tourist destinations. With its untarnished beaches, lush forests, cultural and historic landmarks, exciting leisure attractions, and colourful communities, Phuket is an ideal location for a blissful retreat or vacation. For a stay in a Phuket luxury resort make a reservation with Como Hotels & Resorts.
Being a tropical island, Phuket has many beautiful beaches. However, one of the most idyllic beaches of Phuket is Paradise Beach. As its name suggests, this pristine beach is known for its stunning beauty and soothing ambience, making it a great place to bask in the tropical sun and spend time on the shore. The beach is part of a private property, thus visitors need to pay 100 Bhat to gain access, but it is a small price to pay for the beauty and tranquillity that awaits visitors.
Paradise Beach is located in a secluded area, and can be accessed by driving south along the Patong Beach Road. The beach itself is quite compact, but the clear turquoise waters, white sandy shores, lush coconut and palm trees and soothing atmosphere makes it truly amazing. Boating, jet skiing and any other noisy activities are strictly not allowed on the beach, nor are vendors. Thus, the area is quiet and peaceful. Body boarding, sea kayaking, snorkelling and diving are permitted however. In fact the beach is one of the popular diving and snorkelling sites of Phuket owing to the reefs 100m beyond the coast, and the many underwater rock and coral formations. Thus, Paradise Beach is great for lying down on a deck chair, sipping on a cold beverage and relaxing, or engaging in some water sports.
The beach may be a bit crowded during the high season, but nevertheless, Paradise Beach, and all its natural beauty is well worth experiencing.
