“Full of umbrellas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Come at early morning, and you will be mesmerized by its beauty.But imo if you already visited any island tour package in Phuket, and you will know it's nothing special.
The cons for this beach is near to city or to busiest road like bangla rd which means you can get anything within walking distance not like any beach in Phuket.
The place full of many row of sun umbrellas for lazying around.There's also water activities operator available.

“Wonderfull Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Liked to calmness and the fisherman boat rides . Disliked the peddlers who bother you to take their water sports activities and the fact you have to pay to sit on the beach chairs

“Total dissappointment!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Water wasnt very clear, sand was not very white!..

As soon as you walk on the beach you are showed to a sunlounger with umbella, once settle you are asked to pay 250thb for one sunlounger! i am not sure about you but iv never been charged to use a sunlounger on a public beach!..

Entire beach was mobbed with people! and as you can imagine it was not very quiet or relaxing!.. sunloungers are on top of each other, with rubbish all over the beach and in the sea..

I did not feel comfortable here so myself and partner took off and did not return to the beach via our entire holiday!..

TIP: if you are going to lazy around Patong beach do watch your bags! VERY CROWDED

“Not clean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

The beach and water could be cleaner. Nice vibe and everything, but not the tropical paradise that other areas of Thailand offers.
