Tri Trang Beach, Patong

#4 of 9 in Parks in Kathu
You might easily miss Tri Trang Beach because of its secluded location, which yields white sand, clear water, and fun activities. The coral debris here makes the water less than ideal for swimming, so if you want to do more than sunbathe, wear water shoes or head to the nearby resort and pay to use their pool. For food, head up the grassy hill at the south end for a restaurant with a view. At high tide one of the locals who cares for two elephants allows tourists to swim with the creatures for a fee.

  • The beach like me better than Patong Beach, because less people are, and no one is wishing to sell something to a. So elephants would be here not on the road I was only in the early afternoon on the beach and have enjoyed it. You could walk or rent a scooter just the way good in an hour. Was easy to find and there is also a hotel. On the way, there is also a supermarket

  • From Patong Beach-hour walk or 15 minutes by bike. Very nice beach for free. Set in a sea of good. People not too much. Better bring fruktiki, snack and water. We all enjoyed it.
