This is our 10+ times returning to Phuket (Feb 2013) and we had been staying in different resorts on the west and east side of the island before. We were trying to find other beach that beats Bang Tao beach. Look no further. Bang Tao beach is simply the best particularly during this Feb. Although I'd been sting by jellyfish there a few years ago (the beach could be filled with that in some seasons, depending on the water current), I still think it is the best. The size, privacy, hotels / resorts, local shops and restuarants along the long beach etc are all in perfect balance & harmony.
