A trip to Thailand means relaxing on beautiful white beaches with crystal water surrounded by exotic landscapes. What are the best beaches in Thailand? Why are they considered to be paradisaical? We offer you our rating of the top 5 beaches in Thailand, places for enjoying the tropical waters and incredible sunsets.
- Railay (Krabi Province)Railay is actually a peninsula and has 4 beaches. It is located close to the village of Ao Nang, one of the most popular resorts in Krabi province. As there is no land road to Railay, it is possible to get to this place only by boat. The Railay East and Railay West are very different from each other. The eastern beach is not suitable for swimming and serves as a berth for boats. On the contrary, the West Railay is a picturesque 600 meter length beach with white sand and emerald water.Another beach on Railay Peninsula is Pranang Beach whose landmark is the mysterious cave of the goddess Pranang. For a romantic getaway, you can go to the beach of Ton Sai Bay-it’s the least crowded beach of Railay.
- „Maya Bay“ beach on the island of Phi Phi
Perhaps the most famous beach in Thailand. It began to attract tourists after the release of the film „Beach“ with Leonardo DiCaprio. The beach is easily accessible by speedboat from Krabi province or from Phuket. The beach is famous for its unusual scenery, and despite the large influx of tourists, this place is definitely worth seeing in Thailand.
- Patong Beach (Phuket Island)
This is the largest and most popular beach in Phuket. Along the coastline there is a large number of cafes, bars, clubs, massage salons and spa centers. Patong is called “Little Pattaya” for being famous for its night parties. In this area you can find both guesthouses and fashionable hotels. It is ideal for lovers of vibrant nightlife and outdoor activities. Despite the fact that the beach is rather crowded, here you can also enjoy pure white sand and clear emerald water of the Andaman Sea.
- Karon Beach and Kata Beach (Phuket Island)
These are the most beautiful and clean beaches of Phuket. Here the infrastructure is developed a little less than on Patong, but you can fully enjoy the paradise scenery of the island. These beaches are suitable for a family trip and a romantic getaway.
- Jomtien Beach (Pattaya)
Pattaya is the most dynamic resort in Thailand. Exciting excursions to the sights of Thailand, a bustling nightlife and its proximity to Bangkok attract tourists to this city. Pattaya, in contrast to Phuket, can not boast of a large number of beautiful and clean beaches, except for one – Jomtien. This beach is a real salvation for those who want to combine active rest and beach relaxation.
