tropical beaches of Phuket by George
The Beaches of Phuket
Phuket is a tropical Thai
holiday island and is one of the premier travel destinations in the world.
The beaches of Phuket are well known for their white sandy beaches lined
with gracious palm and coconut trees.
|Most tourists staying on
Phuket during their holiday unfortunately only visit the Phuket beach located
closest to their hotel. It is a shame as there are so many beautiful Phuket
beaches which the tourists could visit. The best way to see all the beautiful
beaches of Phuket is by renting a motorbike or jeep and by simply driving
up and down the coast line of Phuket as travelers will encounter countless
beautiful and deserted Phuket beaches.
Some of the nicest beaches
of Phuket are the Phuket beaches mentioned below.
Bang Tao Beach
The beautiful Bang Tao beach
is located next to the upscale Phuket Laguna complex where a number of
excellent 5 star Phuket hotels are located.
Kamala beach is one of the
most popular of Phuket beaches and is located only a few minutes drive
from Patong beach. Travelers looking for a Phuket beach area which offers
a peaceful surrounding should consider booking a Phuket hotel or resort
in the Phuket beach resort area of Kamala.
The most popular of Phuket
beaches after Patong beach is Karon beach and is located just south of
Patong. Karon has a long beach and numerous resorts line this Phuket beach.
Tourists visiting Phuket with children often prefer the somewhat laidback
atmosphere that Karon beach has to offer.
Patong beach is the busiest
of all the beaches of Phuket. The vast majority of entertainment and business
venues are located in Patong beach.
If travelers are looking
for a Phuket beach resort area where they can party until the early hours
of the morning then Patong beach is the ideal choice for them.
One of the most upscale Phuket
beach areas is the area around Surin beach. If tourists do visit Surin
beach then they should definitely try the excellent and inexpensive seafood
which is served at the Surin beach side restaurants.
