Great place for families

On one of our vacations we stayed at Mom Tri's in Phuket and walked to Kata beach everyday to swim and learn how to surf. We had a great time.

This is one of my favorite beaches in the area. The sand is beautiful and clean, so is the water. There is also some natural shade from the palms. The visibility is great for snorkeling and diving with lots of marine life on either side of the cove. Over summer there is the occasional swell which would be good for... More

Those who love clean and calm beaches , this is the place in Patong area. Its a nice and very friendly beach. Visit at time when sun is milder.

Great beach - very busy down the southern end but the northern end is a little quieter. All the water sports you want and the vendors don't hassle you too much. For a late night drink visit the Reggae Bar at the southern end of the beach.

one of the nicest popular beaches in Phuket. Easy to get to with plenty of amenities including a shower and toilet. Great water, lovely sand and very clean- the perfect beach for a nice stroll as its long. Even has a few nice places to eat tucked away on the otherside near Bothouse. Worth the walk down
