Clean, with not a lot of umbrellas. Nice walking beach. Some trees for cover but not many. Only a few hawkers when I visited but of you politely say no, they leave you alone.

A very wide stretch of superb white sand with a decent choice of dining and nightlife. An idea choice of dining, shopping, and nightlife entertainment opportunities as well as a beautiful Buddhist temple.

This is a very nice, low key beach in Phuket. One of the better public beaches. Fairly clean for the most part but no where near Hawaii standards; nevertheless, very beautiful!

Such a beautiful heavenly place. Didn't like to go too far in the water as it was quite choppy but had hours of fun sunbathing then jumping in for a quick cooldown. Plenty of vendors going up and down selling everything from cold beers (very welcome) to hammocks. There were jetskis and para gliding although i did none of these.... More
