My TOP 04 list of beaches in Phuket | Phuket, Thailand | After over a week here in Phuket and about to leave tomorrow, I want to share with all of you my TOP 04 of favorite beaches in the island. Hopefully this will save you all lots of time, and allow you to better enjoy those areas worth spending time at. Patong Beach might be the most renown area and beach among regular tourists coming to Phuket, my suggestion, do not waste your time there. Patong is to visit at night, go to the bazaars, bars, restaurants and discos, but not for the beach.
TOP #01 – Pansea Beach. Absolute favorite but private with only access if you are a guest at the exclusive Amanpuri or at the soon to open The Surin Hotel. Just stunning, lush green tropical forest, white sand, turquoise waters. Small beach but wide.
TOP #02 – Trisara Beach. Again only with access to guests of the Trisara Resort, sorry but seems that great natural spots have a price in Phuket. But trust me they are fully worth it. The only problem with this beach, which it is breathtaking, is that the sand streamline is very narrow, and during seasons of high tide, the beach fully disappears.
TOP #03 – Nai Thon Beach. Beautiful stretch of sand that for reasons unknown hasn’t still been overdeveloped like many other areas of Phuket. Thus it’s an ideal spot to get away from the crowds and enjoy a quiet swim.
TOP #04 – Kamala Beach. If you are looking to have more people around but still enjoy beautiful beach time, then Kamala Beach is a great option. My recommendation is to go to the far side of the beach, passing the muslim cemetery, and if you are staying at either the Paresa Resort or the Andara Resort, benefit of their own private beach clubs.
It has been a hard research trust me my dear followers, but I sacrifice myself for you every single day. Greeting from Phuket, I am spending my last few hours here. Tomorrow off to Krabi. Carlos Melia Luxury Travel Curator – www.carlosmelia.com
