Bang Tao Beach, Phuket

3.9
#9 of 21 in Beaches in Phuket
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.

    A really long beach with plenty of room and just the right mix of resorts and small restaurants. Relaxed and internationally, shallow and nice and close to the shade, ice cream and beer.

    Nice long sandy beach, pretty quiet at day and evenings. Lots of water sports, beach restaurants and massage places in the day time. Beach dining after dark when the tide allows. No nightlife, beach restaurants close by 10-11pm.

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.
