Bang Tao Beach, Phuket

4.1
#9 of 29 in Beaches in Phuket
You'll have no problem finding a place to stretch out on the white sand of Bang Tao Beach, one of Phuket's longest stretches of shoreline. The water is typically calm but gets very dangerous in rough weather, so keep an eye out for red flags marking the beach. Rent a sun lounger or umbrella for comfort, and grab refreshments from the stand in front of the nearby hotels when you get hungry. Public restrooms are not available. For a bit of excitement, look for horseback riding activities offered by the nearby riding club. Put Bang Tao Beach into our Choeng Thale online trip builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Where to stay in Choeng Thale

Choeng Thale is a combination of the rural and urban. Relatively untouched by tourism, the area is mainly residential or covered in lush rain forest. If headed here, your best bet is to seek accommodations elsewhere in Thalang District. Several good options await, from budget-friendly hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts offering basic, clean rooms, to resorts and villas with swimming pools, ensuite bathrooms, Wi-Fi, and spa and massage therapy services on site.
