I had been traveling around Thailand for over a week by the time I got to Phuket, so Patong Beach was not a spectacle. The beach was very crowded with lots of vendors selling seats, umbrellas, food, etc. I stayed in a hotel across the street from the beach, so I'd walk along each day, but I didn't sit and... More

lovely beach, lovely trees, lovely sky, great waves. the water can get quite rough and as they crash on the black rock along the elevated road, they sppray seawater up in the air. Amazing to look at!

Always seems to be busy, but, not like a few years ago, By comparison, there seems to be at least 50% less people on the beach. When the shops, beach chairs + umbrellas, and beach bars and vendors went away, so did the tourists.

OMG, this beach needs to be visited, the sand is super soft and silky, the vibes are awesome, much to do (water sports or just lazing about). The water is amazing, cool, calm and inviting.

This beach and surrounding area is somehow roughly 10x crazier than Kuta is in Bali. Definitely stay the night if your planning on doing this place justice because it really is all about the nightlife. The abundance of every type of bar and club imaginable is mind blowing, it just keeps going! Unfortunately we made a rookie error and had... More

We stayed in Patong beach for our first time to Phuket Thailand. We found it a very friendly place with many restaurants and plenty of shopping. The beach is a little crowded and not as picturesque as some photos will show but it is a fun place to hang out for a day. Just be prepared to be endlessly hounded... More
