Beautiful Beach
Mar 2020 • Family
If you are staying at The Pavilions Resort you can catch the shuttle service to this beach for free. Part of the package is free access to beach mattresses. Anywhere else you sit on furniture you pay. Very pleasant club house and gentle beach. Worth a visit

Best Local Beach
Feb 2020
My wife and myself have been coming to Phuket every year for the last 20 years and - on every occasion - have stayed in the Bang Tao Bay area.

On reason for this is the proximity to Layan Beach which is by far the best half of the 2 beaches on the Bay. It is far less developed (ie from the Banyan Tree onwards), far less polluted (barely a Jellyfish or any rubbish in sight) and is ideal for a morning walk - something I try to do on every day of my Phuket stays.

As such, I very much encourage other visitors to spend some time on Layan Beach - they won’t be disappointed!!

An amazing day on Layan Beach
Dec 2019 • Couples
I had an amazing day on Layan beach 🏝 today, using our free shuttle service from Kiri Villa Resort. We got to the beach around mid morning.
The sun 🌞 was already hot. The beach is clean and with clear water, it is suitable for swimming.
If you enter the beach at Layan Restaurant entrance you won’t have to pay. It’s only 80 Baht for non-Thai person to enter and stay all day. Parking is available.
However, we are in off-peak, be prepared for the beach to be very busy in the summer months.
There are many section where you can rent sun beds for the days. Do walk around the beach front to choose a nicer lounger. There are some lovely wooded ones with cushions further along.
The sun loungers are attached to many seafront restaurants and massage parlours fighting for your custom.
We walked along the beach to the right and found a national reserve with equipped life guards and park patrols.
There are some etiquettes to being on the reserve and responsible batheing is a must because locals uses the beach, and also there are children around.
The beach swing around and there’s an inlet that you can paddle in. Find a secluded spot and you will not be disturbed.
Low tide is around midday ish in December but check it for it is worth waiting here until the tide goes out and you can walk across to an offset island 🌴 off the shoreline.
But, you can wade through the water at waist deep or swim across if you want.
All in day, an amazing beach for many different types of activities from swimming,
Canoeing, boating, batheing to exploring and dining.
We ate lunch at one of the seafront restaurants. The tables are set on the beach behind the sun loungers, overlooking the sea line with a chill drink was amazing and relaxing.
The only gripe is the toilet facilities which is just a hut with covers, see blue plastic sheet square structure.
But if you waddle along the beach, past Dream Beach Club (with orange furniture and loud music) you are entering the national park bit, and passed the car park is a block of sitting down toilets. There are no toilet rolls or hand soap, best take your own.

Best Beach in Phuket to enjoy
Jul 2019
A quite big beach in a secluded area of the island. Safe swimming area and lovely sand. A couple of local Layan thai restaurants are scattered along the trees. We enjoy going to the beach from our Pavilions Resort in Layan Beach area.

Beach Day at Layan Beach
Mar 2019
At the advise of our accommodation host, we spent a few hours at Layan Beach.
The sand seemed to be nicer just south of Layan Beach at Laguna Beach.

Not many people around so it was quiet but when you leave the beach, you can see lots of garbage

Enjoyable time there
Jan 2019 • Family
The beach was clean with soft sand and we enjoyed the swim. Not too crowded. At around 11:00 am, still plenty of lounge chairs with shade available for rent for 150 baht. There is at least one restaurant and a beach club.

You cannot swim!
Jul 2018 • Couples
Many signs saying you can't swim. Rubbish everywhere. Looks pretty abandoned. The water is very dirty and there is absolutely nothing to do. If you are after a nice beach to swim and chill at I personally do NOT recommend this beach.

Small but very private beach
May 2018 • Family
A good place if you wanna stay clear of the noisy beaches with many people. Here you can simply relax to the sounds of nature and hear the waves roll with a book and cocktail or two
