Phuket island is a paradise with many beaches, jungle areas and small hillocks enough to plan a Phuket tour. More than anything else, Phuket is known for its outstanding beaches. With over 30 beaches around the island, tourists can get a glimpse of various types of vegetation, different textures of sand and breathtaking scenes. However, with a wide array of choices, comes to the question of which is the best beach in Phuket.
It depends. Depends on how you judge a ‘good beach’. We chose to combine a number of measurements, from the availability of nearby places to relax to the fineness of the sand beneath your feet. We gave priority to beaches with a lifeguard station. Stay with us and you might be surprised by some of the places we’ve included. Phuket islands have so much to offer to that you need a long stay there and it cannot be covered in a regular 4/5 night Phuket tour p[package.

Kata Beach has the most beautiful trail of soft sand scattered around the drowsy palm trees, clean waters flowing over the delicate seabed, adventurous surfing option in low season and snorkeling in high season and fantastic laid-back atmosphere. It doesn’t usually get too crowded. It has colorful long-tail boats moored at the northern end, with a budget food and drinks vendors often found nearby. The southern end has a choice of beachfront hotels and restaurants and an exciting flow rider park at Surf House.
With some of the finest white sand in Phuket, Freedom Beach has the isolation of a pristine desert with elite dining options. It’s a little tricky to get to, being accessible only by long-tail boat or a steep footpath down a hill, but it has an air of exclusivity to compensate for it. Unlike busier beaches, it has none of the usual jet skis, parasailing and wandering vendors to pester you while you’re chilling out. This making it the best balance of peaceful and quiet without sacrificing convenience.
Kata Noi Beach
Beautiful is the word. The sand on this island is among the finest, the sea is among the purest and the surroundings are among the most happening places on the earth. It is a much quieter place with its peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. It also offers some great surfing and snorkeling opportunities. Hotel options around this beach is limited but are rated among the best hotels for vacations.
Ya Nui Beach
In an L-shaped curve, Ya Nui is one of Phuket’s smallest beaches yet most the popular beach of Phuket. It's not hard to see why, with its beautiful sand and sea and striking scenery, being just beneath Windmill Viewpoint. The beach’s rocky outcrop is somewhat iconic, is easy to climb on for striking holiday snaps and helps create great conditions for snorkelers. In spite of its small size, there is a good selection of nearby restaurants, vendors and accommodation.
Paradise! It offers you everything you can possibly ask for. It has a little rocky headland which technically makes it 2 beaches. It has the famous Paradise Beach Club and has a variety of great choices with respect to its facilities, including restaurants, bars, sea kayaks, beach chairs and more. It's also the home to Phuket’s only Koh Phangan-style beach parties. Additionally, this beach has calm waters with a easy-going seabed pretty much throughout the year, while the lovely white sand is scattered around the nodding palm trees, which looks like a dream come true.
Nai Harn Beach
Once a secluded spot in Phuket, it is a good fortune of the tourists that Nai Harn Beach has been very definitively “discovered” and continues to grow in popularity. On windier days, it is also a good spot for kite-surfing. With a good choice of hotels, shops and restaurants nearby, It is a must visit for the travelers. However, due to the relatively small size of the bay and the presence of a large lake immediately behind the beach, the spot hasn’t been extremely developed. But it retains its quiet charm. With lifeguards on station and gentle sloping soft seabed, it's quite a family-friend beach.
Bangtao is one of the longest beaches in Phuket, being 6 km in length. Along that length, you'll find some of the island’s best hotels, restaurants and beach clubs. The wide scope of activities make it the popular place for all kinds of visitors as well as locals. While the scenery is perhaps not as picturesque and the sand not as soft as some of the other places on our list, Bangtao is still one of the best beaches in Phuket. It do offer a sheer variety of nearby attractions and the sheer size, which means it’s never that hard to find a quiet spot to enjoy some peace and quiet.
Patong SHOULD definitely be in your “best beaches to visit” list. There's no part of Phuket with as livelier atmosphere as this piece of land. Undoubtedly, the most popular stretch of coastline on the island, it could be said to be a victim of its own popularity. It is generally very busy. The town behind the beach is home to many great restaurants and hotels, as well as the best of Phuket’s nightlife, while the beach itself has plenty of attractions and activities.
Interestingly, Karon Beach has the squeakiest sand in Phuket. Though fine and soft, it makes a funny sound when you walk on it. It is charmingly lined with trees in the southern end and has volleyball nets and beachfront restaurants in the northern half for leisure. The sea here is very approachable but have strong riptides in the low season. There are virtually no rocks along the length of the beach, so you can take a cooling walk around. It’s the third-longest beach in Phuket and is close to being perfectly straight
