Freedom Beach, Patong

4.0
#2 of 8 in Parks in Kathu
Relax in a secluded and peaceful environment at Freedom Beach. Accessible by long-tail boat, this spot benefits from shallow water with fantastic visibility, ideal for spotting the area's colorful marine life and snapping a few pictures. Play beach soccer against the locals, or head up to one of the pleasant bars that overlook the beach. The location remains one of the relatively few tranquil beaches around Phuket, so head here for a little peace and quiet (and remember to keep it a secret).

  • There come by chance considering that the beach is not at hand. It's a true piece of paradise! Peace, tranquility and scenery. To get there c is a road on foot, very hard and steep, but surrounded by nature ...

  • Took my bike there. Parked at the small parking area with a local there. Cost was just 100baht for the parking. Walking down was definitely not easy... Well going back up was even more challenging... However... Well worth it... Since it's low season.. nearly had the whole beach to myself.
  • Beautiful secluded beach. The hike to get there can be challenging if you're not used to hiking/walking but you'll get some amazing views during it. There was a bit to much litter on the beach when we were there, that was disappointing since it's a privately owned beach and you have to pay 200THB entrance, would expect it to be cleaned up (more regularly)
  • Fives Stars! But don't go on raining days. From main entrance B$200 . It's a 25mins downhill hike. No Steps No pavement .
  • There is no freedom in going to freedom beach. The lady was charging 200 baht for just going to the beach. Definitely not worth it.
  • A beautiful quiet beach, very clean in comparison to Patong. However I noticed a monkey was inhumanely kept, chained by its neck and there should be signs that people who are not fit enough to do the journey should not go because it is quite a trek up and down the stairs through the mud. Top tip: take appropriate footwear (comfortable flip flops or trainers if you do not mind them getting dirty and water for the journey back to the top is approximately a 5 minute walk)
