Nai Harn Beach
Nai Harn beach is my favorite beach on Phuket and many expats prefer to spend their free days at this spectacular beach. There are only a few Phuket resorts at Nai Harn beach which is why you won’t feel crowded at this Phuket beach. There are however a number of great little seafood restaurants along the beach of Nai Harn and prices are generally very affordable. If you are looking for activities then you will also be happy at Nai Harn beach as there is a number of water sport companies located at this beach in Phuket.
Another very popular Phuket beach among the expat population is Surin beach which is located between Phuket Laguna and Kamala beach. This long white sandy beach is also home to some of the finest seafood restaurants of Phuket. This Phuket beach generally only gets a bit crowded during the high season. There are a few Phuket resorts located in the Surin beach area however this area of the island is generally better known for its high end real estate projects.
Patong beach is one of the most crowded Phuket beaches however many travelers certainly seem to prefer this. You will never get bored at Patong beach as there are plenty of beach vendors, massage ladies and water sport companies offering you jet skiing, water skiing and parasailing. If you enjoy shopping then please note that there are plenty of shops and boutiques which line the beach road of Patong.
One of the most popular Phuket beaches is most certainly Kata beach which is located just south of Patong beach. Kata beach is one of the longest beaches of Phuket so you can enjoy up to a certain level of privacy when spending the day at Kata beach. The water of the Andaman Sea is generally very calm during the tourist high season. During the low season there are some waves and during this period of the year you will find local surfers hanging out at this wonderful Phuket beach.
