Great beach but lots of Hawkers

Better to go to the newly opened Kudo Beach Club opposite Patong Beach. Nice pool plus right on the beach but without the hawkers.

Beach is fairly small and busy. There was lots of people trying to flog massages, taxi rides and trips to tourist attractions while you're trying to relax. As an Australian, I've seen many beaches which are much nicer!

Patong beach is lovely and clean with plenty of sun beds to hire. You can have a massage or manicure done where you are sunbathing which is quite an experience! Plenty of places to get drinks, snacks etc. Great place for a beach holiday.

Patong Beach is very enjoyable to walk the length in the early hours and we found the north end was quieter. The attendants were great at the farthest north area. You rent thick blue pads and 2 umbrellas for $6 US. Sometimes you can find the sand elevated for your head. The attendants readust the umbrellas throughout the day as... More
