Bang Tao Beach, Phuket

#9 of 21 in Beaches in Phuket
Beach Nature / Park
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. By using our Choeng Thale vacation route planner, you can arrange your visit to Bang Tao Beach and other attractions in Choeng Thale.

  • Staying at Ariana resort, private entrance to beach. Great waves and plenty of places to eat / massage and organise tours.  more »
  • A large, pretty wide beach. Go to the beach a couple of hotels, from whom you can rent sun loungers. Best of all, enjoy the beach in area hotels and Outriger Dusit-there's lots of trees and shade, respectively. To the left of Outrigera (if facing the sea) there is a small shopping arcade and several restaurants, tables which are directly on the beach. In the evening a great sunset over a beer or a glass of wine. Prices in restaurants are the same as in the village. Were in July-swim: strong waves.

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.
