Thailand has many beaches, and it is only natural that you will find yourself in doubt of what to visit when faced with so many choices. However, in retrospect, every beach of Thailand caters to different personalities, meaning that there will be at least one beach paradise that will exactly meet all your needs – you only need to search for it! Below are some of the most popular beaches of Thailand to help get you started:
- Phuket – Phuket is hands-down the most popular beach destination of Thailand, and with good reason. There are plenty of beaches to visit in the area, with one of these being Patong Beach, which boasts of white and soft sand. A lesser-known, but equally gorgeous beach is the Mai Khao beach, which has tranquil golden sands (an ideal location if you want some peace of mind). There are also the beaches of Laem Sing and Kata in the vicinity, both also known for the lesser numbers of tourists. Phuket also has favourable climates year-round, which leads it to attract a large number of tourists. There are plenty of hotels and nightlife attractions as well, in addition to the many different water activities you can enjoy here.
- Pattaya – the eastern coast’s most popular beach city, Pattaya is definitely a contender for the best beaches of Thailand. The fact that this is a fully-fledged bustling city means that you will find a large number and variety of Pattaya beachfront hotels at competitive prices to choose from. Not to add, the beach is within close distances to one of the most beautiful beaches left yet untouched by humans – the Coral Island – which further adds to the value of the Pattaya Bay.
- Koh Mun Nork – if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of nightlife and bar in Pattaya and Phuket, then by all means, make sure to visit the Koh Mun Nork beach. As a truly deserted island, this getaway in the northern region of the Gulf of Siam has only one resort for the entire island and is only accessible by a forty-five-minute ferry ride. You will be able to book an entire beach for yourself, with an almost sure guarantee that you and your family will be the only ones to sunbathe in the white sands of this beach.
- Koh Lanta – if you are here for a family vacation with toddlers and little children, the beaches of Koh Lanta are definitely meant for you. With tranquil waves and warm waters that are quite shallow, the Long Beach of Koh Lanta is definitely the most child-friendly beach you can find in Thailand. There are plenty of market stalls and restaurants for treats as well, so your family is bound to enjoy this specific beach.
