With more than 30 beaches there are many to choose from. Which Phuket beach is the best is always a matter of opinion.
Do you like to mingle and party, and don't mind men in speedos? Well, Patong Beach will be the best for you, even the water quality is not the best, and both the beach and the town is overcrowded. But hey, that might just be exactly what you like!
Nai Thon Beach
Do you need a bit of zen? You would probably prefer Nai Thon Beach better. Because of it's National Park status, the 8 km stretch of beautiful sand has not been over developed, and has kept it's natural beauty. The sand slopes gently into the water, so it is perfect for swimming.
