We are very frequent clients to Bang Tao beach / Laguna area. But as the army has decided to enforce the law and return the beach to its public property status, all restaurants, bars and even beach clubs (except the Xana Club) have been completely demolished. Including institutions such as Lotus restaurant. The beach looks really terrible as it will... More

Great long beach with white sand, can be very strong waves and windy but still lovely. some bars and restaurants are dotted along the beach and one of them called Lotus is well worth going to, however you really need to book as it is SO popular and good value too. Bang tao is a long curved beach and great... More

Super, clean, tidy beach and with a few beach bars offering beers/ snacks etc without ripping you off. Watersports readily available and a safe/ clean environment. If the red flags are showing though DON'T GO SWIMMING!!!

The Laguna area at Bang Tao Beach Phuket is for us the perfect vacation destination. We have been holidaying here over the past six years and look forward to each visit. My wife and I sometimes stop over at Laguna Phuket on our journey home to Australia from abroad. The area is very safe and set in a purpose designed... More

Relax...great atmosphere, a plus to bring your family, multiple swimming pool to choose for, it so far the best stay i ever had. Like a piece of cake, the colourful icing reflect how the pool temptation might attract one..lovely

Fantastic food, beautiful sunset, very welcoming staff. To sit here watching a sunset with a cocktail was a beautiful experience and a must for every visitor! Fresh fish , fantastic authentic flavours, nice people and sand underfoot - heaven! And to cap it all, very fair price too! Going back for lobster this week!

Not the best beach in Thailand. Sea is not crystal clear. Water is shallow for a couple of meters but if youdon't know swimming, you should be careful because there are some pits in the water.

The beach was ok, but not the most picturesque where we were, compared to other beaches. Surin beach was more beautiful and has more restaurants on the beach. That said, still a nice beach.

3km of beautiful sands and the warm waters of the Andaman sea create a paradise for beach dwellers. Dotted with bars and small restaurants, there are plenty of stops to fill up the tank, or just enjoy the views and sunsets. We spent several evenings at The Reggae Bar, good music and plenty to drink, friendly staff what more could... More

We walked to Bang Tao beach from our hotel near Surin beach. Seems more up-market than the beaches further south. Has a few shops, restaurants and bars close to the beach.
