One of the things that I enjoyed during our stay in Phuket was the Patong Beach. The first time we visited it was in the afternoon with my mother and cousin. There were a lot of tourist everywhere and that was the same thing when we were still heading to the beach. It was my first time to see a very wide shore and one of the nicest views were the mountains when looking at them from the beach. And you can definitely swim for FREE!!!
The second time we went there was during the night with my British fiancè. It was very quiet and you would love the breeze from the sea. Really good for a night walk and an intimate conversation at the beach. The last time we visited was very early in thr morning (5 or 6 in the morning) still with my British fiancè. We went there for a swim before we leave for our flight. It was indeed a very nice place and I'l recommend it to those who want to spend their time there, even just to find a quiet place to read a book or have a picnic with family.
