the longtail boats leave from the southern end of patong beach for freedom beach,that's the opposite end to where you are staying but I'm sure the taxi driver will take you sraight there and charge you 200bht
First reply is correct on one point, You can hire a longboat from the southern end of Patong Beach. You can ask any of the longboat owners around the blue jetty/pier were the water plane docks.
You can't get a taxi to Freedom Beach, unless within the last 12 months they've built a footpath or road, which is highly unlikely. If you do go by taxi be prepared to walk through alot of dense brush.
My recommendation is try and get other people to go to Freedom Beach and share the cost. You're going to pay around 1500Baht return trip.
I'd recommend that if you're eating at Freedom Beach then you book your table as soon as you arrive because if you leave it too late you'll be eating late.
You can also catch a longboat to Freedom Beach from Karon for 1500Baht.
Hope this helps you out.
Here's a web link for you to have a look at.
I fully recommend Laem Singh Beach. You can get a taxi to that one.
