Patong beach is one of the best beaches. The restaurants on the beach are delicious. The water is beautiful. I could live there.

Stunning beach, go to relax or enjoy sporting! Little massage chairs, places for a quiet beer or sporting activities

This place is loud, smelly, and dirty and not really in a good way. I would equate this to Las Vegas meets mardi gras with the distinct aroma of fish sauce and sex in the air. Even tough I saw lots of kids, PLEASE DONT TAKE YOUR KIDS! If you want to misbehave openly and not be judged, this is... More

Patong Beach is the place where you can relax and have fun. You can come all day and evening and have some rest .

Bars, girls, food, tuk tuks. Went to experience the hype, definitely not for everyone, haha. Ping pong shows suck you in by saying you just have to buy 1 drink. 1 drink will cost around 900 baht.

The beach is good but crowded. Its better to go in the AM especially early morning , have a run before the crowd arrives.

As all over in Phuket.....very limited sunbeds. I would not recommend it for the ones who want to be quiet and relax . It is quite full of activities . Just beside it you will find plenty of restaurants and bars ....so no problems for drinks and snacks.

You can never be disappointed with Patong beach, so much to see and do. From parasailing, swimming, tanning, jet skiing or simply people watching ..Patong beach has it all. The sunsets are gorgeous and the variety of eateries and refreshment stalls littered around makes everything so convenient. If you're expecting a quiet and isolated beach ...well it's not going to...

This beach has the most beautiful sands but the water isn't the clearest. I always like to see the bottom of the sea so I can see what I'm stepping on! You will be offered a complete variety of things by people selling stuff on this beach ranging from musical instruments and massages to the usual sunglasses and ice creams.... More
