Phuket's heart

This is a must go place, wherever you stay in Phuket. The beach has number of shops across the lane and it's great place for shopping.

This beach is in great location in a haven of shops bars market stalls and restaurants. Unfortunately because of these things it can get quite over crowded and messy. Unsure if there is any clean up committee but there sure needs to be. The water is warm and very inviting but again too much debris makes you think twice about... More

Lovely busy Beach with lots of water sport activities. The beach also includes refreshments and a massage bar! Paragliding and jet skis are available here too but remember to haggle as they start off at a very high price!

Patong Beach must be the dirtiest sea water I have ever experienced. It is murky and full of floating nasty's. My first days swim resulted in sickness and diahorea for 36 hours. The whole of Patong is a filthy mess. We have dined out 3 times and ended up in the toilet all night twice. There is no doubt that... More

Nice Beach, a must do one time, but way over crowded with Tourists. You can find some empty patches here and there if you go to the extreme left or right. Water was not that clear, lots of seaweed everywhere, but all and all a good experience. Been there and done that. Not my cup of tea. Way too many... More

Spent the morning on the beach. Rented a umbrella and 2 chairs to enjoy the day. Water was very warm, but still enjoyed the swim. We collected some rubbish in the water that was floating around, but in general the beach is clean.
