Freedom Beach, Patong

4.1
#2 of 6 in Parks in Patong
Relax in a secluded and peaceful environment at Freedom Beach. Accessible by long-tail boat, this spot benefits from shallow water with fantastic visibility, ideal for spotting the area's colorful marine life and snapping a few pictures. Play beach soccer against the locals, or head up to one of the pleasant bars that overlook the beach. The location remains one of the relatively few tranquil beaches around Phuket, so head here for a little peace and quiet (and remember to keep it a secret).

  • I got here by getting a lift up to the top of the hill to go down 1 of the ‘free routes’. This is where the fun began. To start on the pathway that leads to the beach, I had to duck under a fence and ...  more »

  • If you follow Google maps route you’ll arrive in front of a gate closed with chains and lockers and some Thai guys will ask you 200 Bath per person to reach the beach because, according to them, it’s their “private land. This is illegal, but they don’t care and if you don’t pay, you cannot reach the beach.BUT there is another way that starts exactly near to the gate. This path is in the forest and it’s a little difficult and long, but at the end (15 minutes more or less) you will see an advise with “free entry” and you will get the beach! Freedom beach is amazing and the sea is one the best in Thailand. There are also two restaurants where you can have lunch.
  • Great beach to go if you want a bit of a hike. The guy at the gate wanted 200 baht per person to get in. You might be able to barter and get in if you are holding the reduced amount in front of him. It worked for me. Just saying. The road up there is lined with garbage and potholes. Only go by foot or motorbike. Good luck.
  • 200B to cross property, fee for WC, scooter parking (at end of dirt and rocky trail). Hefty hike down (stairs), ensure you have footwear. Climb back not for weak. But you are rewarded with a beautiful beach and clear water. Note: Boats from Patong Beach as well.
  • Crystal clear water and a very mellow area. Great to catch the sunset. You can get fresh fruit and cold drinks off the beach, Enjoy
  • Freedom beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket and the least accessible too. If you are in a mood for beach trek through the thick jungles near the beach, you can only reach via boat. The whole beach is elongated on a private bay and consists of beautiful powdery white sand, making it a perfect place to be visited by honeymooners in Thailand. The beach is surrounded by the hills and thick jungle, giving you a feeling of a hideaway on the beach. Highlights: No sports activities are done here to spoil the peaceful atmosphere on the beach. On the south end of the beach, there are various authentic restaurants to carve your hunger. You can even rent a lounger and relax on the top of the beach under the coconut palms.
