“Quick boat trip from patong beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

What a great beach! It’s a quick 10-15min boat trip from patong (cost us 1400 Baht for 4 passengers). The beach is very secluded with a great sandy beach and very warm water. Definitely recommendable!

“Nice beach but watch for the "sharks"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Don't know what boat takes 10 minutes but long-tail boat takes 20-25 and this was perfect weather. Asking price at extreme south of Patong beach was 2500 baht for four people but a little further along it started at 2000 and we got for 1800. The beach itself has some facilities that you need to pay for if you use them but the guy in the "military" shirt tried to insist we had to pay 100 baht per head just to be there. Told him we weren't paying just to be on a beach and moved away from the serviced area and he left us alone. Others in same area told us they had paid but thought it was probably a scam.

Beach is nice and secluded, a nice get away for a couple of hours. But hardly a "secret" any more. Long-tail ride was worth it regardless.

“peaceful and lovely beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

I and my friends had a chilling afternoon walking alongside the beach and lying there. Clean water and white sand creates a picturesque scene. Not so crowded so we had enjoyable time.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Do yourself a favour... Hop on a long boat and head to Freedom Beach. We got a tip from an expat living and working in Patong to go here and boy was it worth it!

The boat ride serene, the beach majestic and calming and quiet unlike crazy Patong Beach.

Stay for a short time or a long time and you're guaranteed a good time.
