Bangtao Beach on Phuket spans 6 km in length, making it one of Phuket’s longest beaches. For the most part, it’s pretty deserted – hotels mostly occupy its southern end, while the northern end is generally very quiet and peaceful. Only a few small beach bars are dotted along its length.
The sea is flat, calm and clear from November to April. The waves can get a little rough between May and October, so take note of red flags on the coastline. Bangtao Beach attracts those looking to leave everything behind and do nothing more taxing than reading a book.
The exception to this rule is if you’re at the southern end of the beach. There are several beachfront hotels and beach clubs, resulting in a very lively atmosphere in the evening. However, Bangtao remains one of the most family-friendly beaches in Phuket.
Facilities at Bangtao Beach
Most of the sun loungers on Bangtao Beach are provided by hotels, so they’re exclusively for their guests. There are small areas where you can rent a beach chair, but you’ll also find plenty of space to lay down your towel or mat for free.
In front of the Laguna hotels, local beach shacks sell everything from snacks and drinks to beachwear and tours. Note that Bangtao Beach doesn’t have public toilets.
Dining at Bang Tao Beach
As with most things on Bangtao Beach, hotels provide most of the beach’s dining options, though you can find several beachfront alternatives as well. Several local restaurants can be found to the north of the Angsana Laguna Resort and to the south of Outrigger Laguna Phuket. On the southern end of Bangtao Beach, there are a few small beach restaurants and beach clubs. There’s also a standalone restaurant to the north that’s open during the day.
Highlights of Bangtao Beach in Phuket
Paragliding, waterskiing, jet skiing, and banana boat rides are available in Bangtao during the high season (November to April). During the day, vendors often walk along the beach, looking for customers. Some of the hotels have windsurfers and Hobie cats, but they’re usually reserved for their guests.
If you’re into surfing, the middle section of the beach is protected from the swells. There are usually some smaller waves that are eminently rideable for beginners. Further north along the beach, the waves get bigger as it is exposed to the wind.
Shifting sandbanks can result in unpredictable conditions. Sometimes you can enjoy near-perfect surfing in Bangtao, with southerly winds and soaring waves up to 3 metres.

It’s hard to believe that the rich Cherngtalay neighbourhood, known for its many 5-star resorts and hotels, was once nothing but a quiet little community. Back then, it was full of Chinese immigrants seeking a new life, many of them in the tin mining industry.
Around the year 1901, Mr Ju Pai Tuk, a hairdresser in the village, went back to China to visit his family and also to bring back 3 wooden images of Taoist deities to set up what is known today as Cherngtalay Shrine. It’s usually quiet most of the year, only becoming lively during important periods such as Chinese New Year, deity ceremony days and during the Vegetarian Festival.

Wat Cherngtalay has been the spiritual centre of Bangtao village for over 100 years (though it was relocated to its current location in the ’70s). The temple consists of 5 large buildings – 3 of them dedicated to religious services, while the other 2 are the monks’ dormitory and their refectory.
Featuring traditional Thai temple architecture and decoration, Wat Cherngtalay also blends Buddhism and Hinduism. Inside the ordination hall, you can see a fresco depicting the life of Siddharta Gautama (Buddha). Meanwhile, outside the temple, a large painting represents Ganesha, the elephant-headed god of success and one of the most important deities in the Indian pantheon known as Phra Phikanet in Thailand. Mantras are all written in Sanskrit. Tranquil and beautiful, Wat Cherngtalay is a fine temple to visit in the Bangtao area.
