    I 've just been back from a 10 days fantastic holiday in Phuket.We stayed in Best Western premier Resort Bang Tao.It was liked a paradise .with beautiful beach frond resort surrounded by manicure gardens with coconut trees and other fantastic flowers.
    The staff are over friendly and helpful.Specially BUM is an excellent receptionist. She went over and above her capacity to help me and.my groups with our traveling needs and advisers. I am very happy to recommend the hotel to future travelers to Phuket.

    Really great beach. We walked from patong - difficult walk. When you get to avista hotel carry on walking straight. Go past the first entrance with the lady who charges 100b you don’t need to pay that. About 800m there is a little cabin shop and the people are so friendly. You can walk to the beach from there. It is steep and not very safe but do able - way back is hard . I got a smoothie for 80b and a coke for 40b on the beach there was also food

    Not crowded. Impressive walking beach. Can get dirty by end of the day from the ocean bringing in debris.

    Kata Beach is a beautiful bay of white sand and a clear sea, with palm trees that offer shade.
    The beach of Kata is divided into two distinct parts: Kata Yai, the most important, and Kata Noi, located further south. These beautiful beaches have seen the development of new tourist facilities: high-end resorts, restaurants, bars, shops and massage parlours. There are fewer and fewer modest hotels, they have been bought, transformed, furnished, and prices have increased significantly. For lunch, a good option is to enjoy the buffets offered by the hotels. In the evening, street stalls offer cheap Thai cuisine.

    This beach is beautiful and has a gorgeous sunset, but I don’t recommend it for swimming. The waves are very rough, and right now they have jellyfish in the water. It’s not a very good beach to walk on, as the sand is course but soft so your feet sink easily. It is close to Turtle Village and many of the resorts are on this beach.

    four of us hired a longboat from Rawai beach for 1500 baht. the trip across to Banana Beach in itself was great and took about 30 mins. We passed the slightly larger Long Beach on our way to Banana Beach by choice. It was beautiful. Nice sandy beach and 100 baht got you a deckchair. All usual facilities available. Sea warm and full of colourful fishes. Views to die for. Also some Watersport available. We went in the pm and my only regret is not going for the full day.

    Beautiful beach with an amazing sunset. On the north end of the beach you have Novotel and Intercontinental. In the middle there is a restaurant row with plenty of choices to dine and drink. On the south side as you get closer to town things are getting more quiet. Karmala is currently a sleepy little town which makes it attractive.

    So, If you wanna getaway from the crowded beach and buzz… go just “around the corner” a bit away, close by! And you be surprised! 😉👍😍

    So we read Phuket101’s article about a hidden secret beach and were so intrigued we took the plunge. Off to Surin we went where we located an orange dinghy boat and 1000 baht (to and fro) later, our family of 5 were heading towards this secret cove. Note: There’s wading in the waves involved so prepare to get wet.

    Mostly Russians too had gotten wind of this secluded beach - they trekked via the hinterland - but there’s enough of the lush jungles and clear soft sand for all of us. There’s a little swing hanging from the sea almond trees and enterprising Alex (and her family) will offer you loungers (100 baht), massages, drinks and ice cream to make it a lovely day out.

    Must try: Alex’s brother’s seafood restaurant perched on the rock bluffs. We had sandwiches, glass noodles, shrimp fried rice, veg rolls, a delicious snapper done sweet and sour style and mangoes for about USD$55. Give them a try. It will cap off your day in the sun on Robinson Crusoe’s beach.

    Nice wild beach - for those who like something a bit less commercial.

    Keep closer to the sea as some mozzies around the back where the forest is
